Arsenal v Fulham preview

Arsene Wenger is able to call upon Lukas Podolski for Saturday's Premier League game at home to Fulham, with the Arsenal forward back following a hamstring injury.

Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, both of whom made comebacks in Monday's win at Aston Villa, are also available but the Gunners have a number of other injury concerns.

Nacho Monreal is a doubt, having twisted a ligament in his foot in the game at Villa Park, as is Tomas Rosicky who suffered a broken nose in the same match.

Theo Walcott is a long-term absentee whilst Aaron Ramsey, Mikel Arteta, Nicklas Bendtner and club captain Thomas Vermaelen remained sidelined as well.

Fulham captain Brede Hangeland is expected to start having come through 90 minutes of their FA Cup victory over Norwich on Tuesday unscathed.

The Norwegian's return means that Rene Meulensteen is able to choose from a full complement of players with Fernando Amorebieta the only doubt with a knee problem.

Youngster Dan Burn impressed in just his second appearance for the club in the midweek win and is an option to keep his place alongside Hangeland should Amorebieta miss out.
