Fulham 2 - Arsenal 1
I didn't get to see the game, but the result is very disappointing, especially as Chelsea won at Wolves, putting them back into fourth place, one point ahead of the Gunners. Admittedly, three games in less than a week will challenge any side, but Arsenal only managed to take four points from the three games, which just isn't good enough. Neither is it good enough to score one goal per game. Robin van Persie plainly needs help up front, but Walcott and Gervinho (who will leave soon for the African Cup of Nations) seem unable to hit the net. Thierry Henry will provide some temporary assistance, but the rumored move for German-Polish striker Lucas Podolski would also be welcome.
