Game page: Fulham - Arsenal

Christmas is a weird time for English football. While most other leagues are on break, the Brits are suffering their most intense matching period of the year.

This makes analysing the games rather peculiar. Since the teams last played less than 48 hours ago, fatigue plays a major part and knowledge of the line-ups is therefore imperative.

As a pointer, big teams are generally a better bet than usual because of this. With way deeper squads, a lot of the big teams can afford to rest almost the entire starting XI and still field a world-class team.

It's tough to speculate all that much about the line-ups, but Arsene Wenger will surely have more, and better, options than Martin Jol, despite a fairly long injury list consisting of Jack Wilshere, Bacary Sagna and Kieran Gibbs among others.

Fulhams injury situation is slightly better, but Andy Johnson is unlikely to feature for 90 minutes and Bobby Zamora is still out.

All in all, I'm giving Arsenal the edge here.

Prediction: The lack of travelling distance and a deeper squad makes the Away Win a very attractive option today.
