Fulham manager Martin Jol is confident going into his side’s trip to Arsenal.

The Whites have been weak on the road this season, throwing 88th minute leads away against Southampton and Reading respectively and the Dutchman is hoping for a good performance at the Emirates.

“We’ve done okay in our away matches so far with a win and two draws,” he said in his pre-match press conference. “So hopefully we can do something similar [on Saturday].

“Arsenal have always been a good footballing team and they will have been disappointed to lose their last league game against Manchester United; but those are two top teams who want to win.

“Against Schalke [in the UEFA Champions League] they were okay and drew 2-2, even though they were 2-0 up. And they beat Queens Park Rangers 1-0 recently so I think they are doing fine.

“If we play a good game then we can cause them problems. We did that last season at the Emirates but they scored a late goal to make it 1-1.

“Then at home Bobby Zamora won the game in the last couple of minutes, so hopefully we can do the same this time.”
