The Gunners have the chance to extend their winning run when Unai Emery’s side make the short trip across the English capital this weekend.
Arsenal haven’t put a foot wrong in the Premier League since a 3-2 loss to derby rivals Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge back in August.
Indeed, the north London outfit have notched up victories over West Ham, Newcastle United, Cardiff City, Watford and Everton to make significant progress under Emery.
The Gunners have managed to put themselves in contention for a top-four finish this season with five successive victories in the Premier League despite a slow start to the Spanish coach’s reign.
Arsenal’s record at Fulham suggests a sixth consecutive win could be on the cards given Fulham have only managed to win one of their last 11 meetings with the Gunners at Craven Cottage.
Former Liverpool FC striker Owen is backing Arsenal to ease to a comfortable win over the promoted side in west London this Sunday lunchtime.
“Fulham are one of only two Premier League sides without a clean sheet so far this season and they will do well to keep a confident Arsenal side out at Craven Cottage in this High Noon showdown given the Gunners keep winning without being at their very best,” Owen told BetVictor.
“The Gunners have only won one of their last eight away London derbies, but I feel they will maintain their excellent recent run against the Cottagers although I expect the hosts to find the back of the Arsenal net.”
Arsenal are in fifth place in the Premier League table following their run of five successive top-flight victories.
Olivier Giroud and Lukas Podolski were both on the score sheet when Arsenal beat Fulham 3-0 on their last trip to Craven Cottage in 2013.
Indeed, Fulham haven’t beaten Arsenal at their home stadium since 2012 when Bobby Zamora sealed three points in a 2-1 win after Laurent Koscielny had given the visitors an early lead.
The Cottagers could slump to their worst-ever start in the English top flight if Fulham suffer a loss at the hands of their London rivals this weekend.
The Gunners have only won one of their last eight away London derbies
Emery hasn’t won a London derby on the road in his short spell as Arsenal manager so far following their 3-2 loss to top-four rivals Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge back in August.
The Gunners have the best winning percentage of the London clubs in derbies, but Arsenal’s record on the road is a real weakness given the Gunners have only won one away fixture in the English capital in eight attempts.
