Fulham vs. Arsenal: Lineups

Arsenal have dropped Jack Wilshere as they take on Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Tomas Rosicky replaces the England midfielder, who has just returned to action after injury, although the superior form of the Czech has probably played a role too. Olivier Giroud starts up front for the Gunners, with Santiago Cazorla on the left wing in place of Lukas Podolski. Aaron Ramsey also keeps his place in the team alongside Mikel Arteta.

Fulham, meanwhile, field a strong lineup with Dimitar Berbatov ahead of Bryan Ruiz, Urby Emanuelson and Alexander Kacaniklic in a dangerous-loking frontline. Kieran Richardson and Stanislav Manolev start at full-back.

Fulham starting line-up (4-2-3-1): Mark Schwarzer; Stanislav Manolev, Philippe Senderos, Brede Hangeland, Kieran Richardson; Eyong Enoh, Steve Sidwell; Bryan Ruiz, Urby Emanuelson, Alexander Kacaniklic; Dimitar Berbatov.

Arsenal starting line-up (4-3-3): Wojciech Szczesny; Bacary Sagna, Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny, Ignacio Monreal;Mikel Arteta, Aaron Ramsey, Tomas Rosicky; Santiago Cazorla, Theo Walcott, Olivier Giroud.
