Join us for live updates in the Premier League clash between Fulham and Arsenal at Craven Cottage.

That's it! Fulham will be massively disappointed having been in the game at half-time, but Arsenal were incredibly efficient in their attacking play and fully deserve the win.
Three added minutes.
GOAL!!!! Vintage Auba, as he's played in on goal, outpaces the defender and then accurately drives it in to the left corner of the net, giving the keeper no chance.
It looks like damage limitation now for the home side, as they try to keep hold of the ball so Arsenal don't get another.
Vietto makes way for Johanssen.
Guendouzi comes on for goalscorer Lacazaette.
GOAL!!!! No way back for Fulham now. Aubameyang controls a cross from Bellerin, turns and then hits the ball past Bettenelli with his left to take the game out of reach.
Fulham are still instisting on playing out from the back, even though they desperately in need of a goal.
Schurrle in the book for a late challenge on Torreira.
GOAL!!!! Clinical counter-attacking play from Arsenal as they work the ball forward wonderfully, before Ramsey flicks the ball in to the net with an excellent backheel.
Ramsey comes on for Iwobi, who has done well on the left wing.
Anguissa is off and McDonald comes on for the hosts, while Welbeck makes way for Aubameyang for Arsenal.
Great chance for Kamara, but he gets his header all wrong and doesn't even get it on target.
Mustafi is down after an awkward landing from a header. He looks to be in serious pain.
Ream comes off and Kamara is introduced. Seems Fulham have gone to a back four now.
GOAL!!!!!! That didn't take long! Lacazette makes the most of a defensive mistake from Fulham, peels of his marker as he takes the ball in and then lashes it in to the bottom left corner from 20 yards.
Arsenal get the game started again.
That's it for the first half. A very entertaining first half in this one with chances for both teams and two very nicely taken goals. Sets up a very intriguing second half!
One added minute.
GOAL!!!!! FUlham are back in it, as Schurrle is played in to the box and then pulls off a wonderful chipped finish over Bernd Leno.
Schurrle has a good chance on his left foot, but he mishits it and it flies in to the stands.
Lacazette takes a nasty blow from a Ream challenge, but is fine to continue.
Arsenal almost in again, as Mkhitaryan slides in at the back post from a Welbeck cross, but Betenelli's position is good and he saves it.
GOAL!!!!! Lacazette controls the ball from a Monreal cross, swivels and then sweeps the ball in to the bottom left corner of the Fulham net.
Great work from Iwobi, as he nutmegs Odoi and gets in to the box, before the ball is snatched off him by a defender.
Wonderful from Le Marchand, who stays with Lacazette and slides in to get the ball away from danger before his compatriot can stick it in to the net.
Mitrovic and Monreal in a full blooded collision, but it seems as though both are okay to continue.
Needless foul from Anguissa on Holding.
Monreal won the ball back excellently and could have got the ball in to the box, but his touch was far too heavy and it runs out for a Fulham goal kick.
Mitrovic has a shot well blocked by Mustafi.
Iwobi with a good run down the flank and gets the ball across, but no one can get on the end of it.
Great stop by Leno to deny Vietto, who will feel he should have scored.
Fulham get us underway here.
Kick off just minutes away now!
Mesut Ozil is not in the squad today, as he has a reported back injury which will be a big miss for the Gunners.
Arsenal will look as follows: Leno; Bellerin, Mustafi, Holding, Monreal; Torreira, Xhaka; Iwobi, Mkhitaryan, Welbeck; Lacazette.
Here's how Fulham will shape up: Bettinelli; Christie, Odoi, Ream, Le Marchand; Seri, Anguissa; Vietto, Schurrle, R Sessegnon; Mitrovic.
After a good win in the Europa League against Qarabag midweek, the 'Gunners' have extended their winning streak to eight games in all competitions, and will be confident of making it nine here.
The 'Cottagers' have had a mixed start to the season, and will expect more than the five points they have gained so far given the amount of money they spent on new signings, over £100 million in total.
Hello and welcome to this London derby in the Premier League between Fulham and Arsenal.
