Arsenal vs Fulham LIVE: Latest Premier League Updates


Mikel Arteta cannot guarantee that Arsenal will replace Nicolas Pepe

Mikel Arteta believes the current transfer window is more difficult than ever and predicts a “very powerful” end to the window, but offered no guarantees that Arsenal would sign a replacement for Nicolas Pepe.

The Gunners top the Premier League table and are the only club to have a perfect start to the season after their win over Bournemouth last week.

Hiring early was key to their strong opening, with players like Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko signing before any serious kicks were made.


Recent results from Fulham

Fulham started the season brilliantly and were unlucky to get away from Craven Cottage by just a point after impressing against Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool. The Cottagers took the lead twice in the game, but on both occasions the game was ruled and in the end they had to settle for a point.

It was a more sketchy affair against Wolves in their next match, but they created some decent chances and just couldn’t convert it. That game ended 0-0 to give Fulham their second point of the season.

They finally got their first win with a last minute winner from Aleksandar Mitrovic. A fierce battle with Brentford looked set to end in another draw, but Mitrovic popped up and found the back of the net in the last minute to drive Craven Cottage wild.

Next up were Leicester City and Gabriel Jesus scored his first goals in an Arsenal shirt to help them win a 4-2 win against the Foxes.

The last time out was another convincing win with Bournemouth falling to a 3-0 loss. Martin Odegaard scored twice before William Saliba capped off an exceptional performance with an own goal.


More from the Manchester United boss

The end [from Bruno Fernandes] was beautiful, but the part before it was a team goal. We built it from the back and there were a few moments right after the break where it was played well by the team. We have to improve in possession.

“The win against Liverpool gave us a lot of confidence because we knew we could compete against one of the best teams in the world. However, at the beginning of the season it is very hard and hard work, so everyone in the squad needs to be aware of Which.

A delighted Erik ten Hag tells BT Sport

“I think the players learned some lessons from Brentford. We were more compact on the long balls. Of course we were very happy. The goal we made we could have made more. You hope in the last 30 minutes of the game to have more control.

“We had the best chance of the game before half-time. I was satisfied. We could have created more at the start of the game. It’s the start of the season, it’s tough. You have to fight and we did that today, so we were rewarded.

“It was a fantastic ending. I’m really happy for Bruno [Fernandes]. But I think it was the best part of us. Immediately after the break we kept control. We moved it and created three really good chances right after the break and that’s how I want us to play.

“I still feel there is room for improvement, to get more control, but we are not that far away. We can improve that, that’s clear.”


Reaction of Moussa Djenepo after the match

Southampton winger Moussa Djenepo commented after the 1-0 defeat to Manchester United: “We give everything. It’s football, so sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.

Bruno Fernandes volleys Manchester United past Southampton to consecutive league victories

Bruno Fernandes finally corrects course as Manchester United continue to correct mistakes.

Not just for the season and lineup, but this whole 1-0 win over Southampton – and especially the match-winning Portuguese. United are still capable of moments, but Erik ten Hag has yet to develop them into complete performances.

His had clearly improved at Brentford, but were not as good as against Liverpool, and there were many long passages when Ralph Hassenhuttl’s side certainly seemed to be getting something out of the game. One was Joe Aribo’s header from close range, after another United pass broke down.

Comment from Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl who said after the game against BT Sport: “I am very proud of what the boys have done today. They did a really good job from the first minute. We had good moments and chances, we really stretched them. We deserved more, but sometimes football is like that.

“We had very good moments and many good chances in the penalty area. They had two shots on target in the second half. I thought we were always dangerous. Every set piece was dangerous and we were really stretching, but the ball wouldn’t go in.

“I am not afraid of this team because they are really fighting for our goals and this is good to see.”

Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Manchester United scorer Bruno Fernandes said: “We knew it’s not easy to play against Southampton. We’ve been through that. Sometimes you have to suffer. Every game is tough. Well done to us. Big three points for us Now we have to move on.

“It’s important because one win or two wins don’t make the league. We must continue this sacrifice for the rest of the season. That’s what this club asks. After Liverpool everyone could feel it. We’re setting the standard, so now we have to go ahead and improve if we can.

“It was a great ball [for the goal], even great play from behind. Everything was perfect. Someone runs, someone gets the space behind. We’ve done well, done so well for everyone, not just me.

“We didn’t lose from home two or three seasons ago, but we want to win every game, that’s what it’s going to be to play for Manchester United.”
