Football Betting Tips: Fulham play two consecutive home matches in three days, both with higher-ranked teams. The Cottagers have put up a decent showing this season, and they seek a mid-table finish, safe from relegation.

Arsenal is currently in fifth place in the league, just two points behind Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, who are tied on points. A good showing by Arsenal can still land them in a Champions League qualifying spot, so they need all the points they can get.

Fulham have lost valuable midfielder Ashkan Degajah to an ankle ligament injury that requires surgery. He is expected to be out for the rest of the season. According to Fulham manager Martin Jol, they will surely miss Degajah’s pace and on-ball abilities.

Despite being in the middle of the league table without any real danger of relegation, Fulham is still aiming to get more points to ensure safety even in the worst-case scenario. Jol’s better-safe-than-sorry attitude should rub off to the rest of the team to ensure their survival in the top flight.

Meanwhile, Arsenal’s eight-year trophy drought has seemed to wear on the club. They are out of the competition for any trophy this season. By the club’s illustrious standards, this is rather unacceptable. No doubt Arsene Wenger is going to feel the heat by this season’s end.

According to top Malaysia sports bookie, Arsenal has the advantage in this match. The Gunners will give a 0.5 goal handicap to the opposition, meaning that Arsenal bettors can only win their bet if their team wins by at least one goal.
