Arsenal vs. Fulham: Lineups

Craig Eastmond gets a surprise start for Arsenal in place of the suspended Jack Wilshere in midfield as they take on Fulham at the Emirates Stadium.

The youngster partners Mikel Arteta in the centre of Arsenal's team, with the rest of the lineup much as expected, with Theo Walcott also starting. Vito Mannone continues in goal, while Bacary Sagna is fully fit after his injury and starts at right-back.

Fulham name a solid-looking 4-4-2 fronted by the technical wizardry of Dimitar Berbatov and Bryan Ruiz up front. Kieran Richardson is a surprise starter, while Ashkan Dejagah make his first start for the cottagers.

Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Vito Mannone; Bacary Sagna, Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny, Thomas Vermaelen; Mikel Arteta, Craig Eastmond; Theo Walcott, Santiago Cazorla, Lukas Podolski; Olivier Giroud.

Fulham (4-4-2): Mark Schwarzer; Sacha Riether, Brede Hangeland, Aaron Hughes, John Arne Riise; Ashkan Dejagah, Chris Baird, Steve Sidwell, Kieran Richardson; Bryan Ruiz, Dimitar Berbatov
