Aleksandar Mitrovic gave his teammates a rousing pep talk in the wake of last week’s desolating setback against Wolves, and Fulham need to show it has sunk in. Defeat at the Emirates would be their fifth in a row and demand a miraculous run in order to escape relegation. Wins are required but Arsenal are of a similar mind and refuse to give up on making the European places: it is the start of a relatively kind run-in for Mikel Arteta’s side and, while he may rotate, the manager will not allow his players to focus solely on Europa League salvation.
