Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has challenged his side to lift the “flat” atmosphere at the Emirates Stadium with a strong performance against Fulham.

The Gunners head into the clash with the Cottagers looking to bounce back from last weekend’s defeat at Manchester United, and build on the midweek Champions League draw away at Schalke.

Wenger admits recent lacklustre displays have left the Arsenal fans less than impressed, but maintains it will be the team’s duty to get them off their seats again tomorrow.

“We just have to play good games. The atmosphere comes from the team, not the fans, and we have to think like that,” Wenger said.

“The vibes come out with the quality of our game, the fans are behind the team. That is what is about us.

“I agree we had one or two flat games at home, especially against Schalke, even the game against QPR.

“I believe that it is down to the quality of our game - that is our responsibility.”

While Arsenal may be struggling for consistency to climb up into the top four, Fulham head into the weekend on the back of a four-match unbeaten run, with only one defeat in the last seven league games, and are level on points with the seventh-placed Gunners.

Wenger knows Martin Jol’s side will represent another stern test of his squad’s character.

“Fulham are very efficient going forward,” the Frenchman said.

“They have 1/8Hugo 3/8 Rodallega, they have of course 1/8Dimitar 3/8 Berbatov, and offensively they are a side who creates many chances and who scores goals - 21 goals is quite impressive in 10 games.”
