Meanwhile Arsenal, buoyed by their convincing 3-0 win over Fenerbahce in the Champions league, will be looking to bounce back from last weekend’s surprise defeat to Aston Villa as they bid to get their first points of the season.
Theo Walcott played a crucial role in the win in Turkey creating two goals and the winger believes that if the Gunners can replica the performance they produced midweek they will be a match for anyone.
“If everyone works hard for each other we can get the results,” Walcott told Arsenal’s official web-site.
“I think at the weekend that probably wasn’t the case, and we knew how disappointing it was. You don’t want to start a season like that.
“We’ve forgotten about that and we’re concentrating on Fulham. And if we perform like that (Wednesday), with that intensity, we can beat anyone.”
Arsene Wenger is poised to enter the transfer market now that his side have all but reached the group stages of the Champions league although with Thomas Vermaelen, Laurent Koscielny, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Abou Diaby and Mikel Arteta the French man would love to have those new faces in sooner.
Fulham meanwhile will include Scott Parker in their line-up after he completed his move from Tottenham midweek. The England International, who previously turned out for Fulham’s rivals Chelsea, will be hoping that his previous alliance will not sour any potential relationship with the Craven Cottage faithful
“I just want them to respect me. They’ve seen the way I play and the character I am,” Parker said.
“Every club I’ve been at I’ve forged a relationship with the fans. I hope it’ll be the same here.”
Parker could be joined in the starting line-up by another White Hart Lane old boy with Darren Bent poised for his first start however Maarten Stekelenburg and Kieran Richardson are out after suffering shoulder and hamstring injuries in the win over Sunderland.
David Stockdale is set to stand in for the injured Stekelenburg with Matthew Briggs the potential replacement for Richardson.
Swedish attacker Alexander Kacaniklic could return to the starting line up after recovering from a hamstring.
