Host commentator

There’s an opportunity to impress in goal today for Mat Ryan, who is on loan at Arsenal from Brighton.

Ryan has made just one previous appearance for Arsenal, but he starts today, with Bernd Leno on the bench.

Fulham are in 18th place and time is running out for them to preserve their Premier League status – they are seven points adrift of Burnley, who have a game in hand.

A win at Emirates Stadium, however, would give Scott Parker’s side a major boost in their quest to stay up.
