Dimitar Berbatov: Fulham's key man

Arsenal travel to Fulham aiming to cement their bid for a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Arsenal saw their four-match winning run halted by Everton in midweek and they will be determined to take all three points from their trip to Craven Cottage.

Arsene Wenger's side are currently in fourth place in the table, two points clear of bitter rivals Tottenham, but they have played a game more than their north London neighbours.

Arsenal go into the game in good form having lost just one of their last 11 games and they are only one point behind third-placed Chelsea.

Fulham are sitting in tenth spot on 40 points and should be safe from relegation.

Martin Jol's men will be smarting from their defeat by local rivals Chelsea in midweek and they will be looking to bounce back against Arsenal.

Fulham are unbeaten in their last four Premier League meetings with Arsenal and they earned a thrilling 3-3 draw at the Emirates earlier in the season.

Fellow Pole Wojciech Szczesny will get the chance to reclaim the number one jersey again, while midfielder Tomas Rosicky (hamstring) faces a fitness test.

Left-back Nacho Monreal is pressing for a start after being named on the bench for the last two games, as is forward Lukas Podolski, but midfielder Abou Diaby (knee) is a long-term absentee.
