Arsenal FC makes a short trip south on Sunday, for a London derby with a lot on the line at Craven Cottage.
Fulham (and can say the exact same for Brighton & Hove Albion this season) are a recently promoted club that is not going to settle for just mid-table this season. No, they will be in the mix for a Europa League or Conference League slot, all the way until Championship Sunday.
