It was an afternoon of disappointment for the Mikel Arteta's men at Craven Cottage in another London Derby as Arsenal failed to reclaim the top spot in English Premier League, losing to Fulham by two goals to one.

Fulham came from behind to beat Arsenal, therefore, suffering second straight defeats after losing to West Ham by  two nill in a London Derby, leaving the Gunners with a win in their last five league matches.

Arsenal started the game with high tempo, no wonder, they registered the first goal as early as fifth minute, when Busayo Saka pounced on a rebounce after Bernd Leno had parried Gabriel Martimelli's shot.

Thereafter, Fulham took the fight to their visitors half. Raul Jimenez converted Tom cairney's cross after Calvin Bassey had dispossessed Busayo Saka off the ball, sent a pass to William to edge forward down the left flank to find Tom Cairney.

In the second half, Arsenal were lacking the tenacity, awful and couldn't even had a shot on target to the dismay of many soccer pundits, in a match, Mikel Arteta described as "the worst of the season."
In the 59th minute, Bobby De Cordova Reid fired home the winner, to end a run of three straight defeats while Arsenal finishes the year on the 4th position on the EPL log.
