Arsenal are set to host Fulham in a Premier League tie at the Emirates Stadium this evening, which will be one of their toughest game since premier league begins.

Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, disclosed that his defenders must be ready to checkmate every move of Fulham striker, Aleksandar Mitrović ahead of today’s Premier League game.

He furthered that Mitrović, who has scored three Premier League goals so far this season, is efficient in front of the goal areas.

The Gunners head to the game after defeating Bournemouth 3-0 in their last Premier League game.

Speaking on Mitrović at pre-match press conference, Arteta said, “When he’s around the box, as you can see last season, he scored 43 goals in the league and he already has three this season, which tells you the efficiency that he has in these areas.”

“He’s one of the main threats of Fulham.”
