Match preview

Adam Armstrong is notoriously one of the most voluminous shooters in the Premier League, ranking 13th in shots per 90 minutes with 2.99 last season. Among teams outside of the big six, Armstrong ranks second.

So it’s a surprise to see the striker rated 6-5 to have three or more shots against Leicester, who allowed the fourth-most in the division last year.

The 25-year-old impressed in his cameo against Leeds last week and looks likely to start, so Price, which is hit and miss elsewhere, could be under pressure.

Almost all of the problems Fulham suffered in their 0-0 draw with Wolves came from their right side, where Kenny Tete was often caught off guard.

Bruno Lage’s men missed a number of scoring chances from there and it seems likely that the channel between right centre-back and right-back will be an area opposing sides will look to exploit against the Cottagers .

Yoane Wissa dropped out of the starting XI for the game against Manchester United, but with Brentford likely to return to a 4-3-3 in this clash, he could return to the left side of the front line.

The 25-year-old scored seven times in 12 starts last season and given Fulham’s weakness on his right side, Wissa’s 10-3 all-time tally is interesting.

Much has been said about Gabriel Jesus’ transfer to Arsenal, but Oleksandr Zinchenko was equally important in their debut success.

The Ukrainian’s arrival allows him and Granit Xhaka to switch between the left side of defense and central midfield, and this rotation is crucial for the new style of play that Mike Arteta is trying to achieve. enforce. The pair have two assists and one goal between them in two games.

This seems to have been missed by some bookmakers and as a result the 10-3 on Zinchenko and 9-2 on Xhaka, either scoring a goal or assisting, is making a lot of appeal against a Bournemouth side who look ready to struggle to contain the new- look at the attack of the gunners.
