Sports Mole looks ahead to this weekend's Premier League encounter between Fulham and Arsenal.

With just five games remaining to clinch a spot in the top four of the Premier League table, Arsenal can further boost their chance of playing Champions League football next season with a victory over Fulham.

The Gunners travel to Craven Cottage on Saturday on the back of a goalless draw with Everton on Tuesday, which has placed them in fourth and just two points ahead of North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Meanwhile, Fulham will try to overcome their damaging 3-0 defeat to Chelsea by snatching all three points on home turf and possibly leapfrogging Swansea City into ninth place.

This could be a crucial fixture for the visiting side, who were held to a 3-3 draw at the Emirates Stadium by the Cottagers in the reverse fixture last November.

Dimitar Berbatov is expected to start for Fulham this weekend, while Jack Wilshere should turn out for the Gunners after the Football Association decided against punishing the midfielder for an alleged bust-up with Everton forward Kevin Mirallas.
