Arsenal 2-2 Fulham

Two dropped points in the deluge rather than three in the end at the Emirates for Arsenal, but, based on this performance, title challengers they're not.

Fulham were good value for their draw, snatching an equaliser from a corner, after a Zinchenko stray pass.

However, Zinchenko's performance was part of the reason that Arsenal began to look like scoring. Alongside, the Ukrainian, fellow substitutes Nketiah and Vieira were about to turn the Gunners' fortunes around.

Vieira won a penalty, which Saka expertly despatched and then the Portuguese supplied the low cross for Nketiah to put Arsenal ahead.

Once Fulham were down to ten men, the points seemed assured, but Arsenal still can't see a game out.

Excitement for the neutrals and frustration for the locals, but delight for champions Man City, who must realise that Arsenal are not going to be contenders yet.
