Arsenal fans in disbelief at Fulham after training footage emerges

With less than two weeks of the Premier League season to go, Arsenal's title hopes rest on a fellow London club taking points off Manchester City. The Blues will face Fulham, Tottenham, and West Ham over the final week of the season and Arsenal need one of them to secure a positive result if they are to win their first Premier League title in 20 years.

With West Ham taking on City at the Etihad Stadium and Tottenham in their worst form of the season, many people believe that Arsenal's hopes largely rest on Fulham getting a result against Guardiola's men at Craven Cottage this Saturday. However, their preparation for the fixture has infuriated Arsenal fans after training footage emerged on Tuesday.

In a video published by Raul Jimenez on social media, a group of Fulham players including ex-Arsenal man, Willian, can be seen flying kites at the club's training ground in the baking sunshine. Not a lot of football work seems to be going on and the players don't exactly look ready to take on the champions on Saturday.

Arsenal fans respond to kite video

It didn't take long for Arsenal fans to respond to the video of Fulham's kite-flying escapades. Taking to social media, one Arsenal fan said: “We are here hoping Fulham beat city and they're there flying kites in training.”

Another posted: “We’re all sitting here praying Fulham do us a favour this weekend. Meanwhile, Marco Silva has the guys flying kites on the training ground.”

A third added: “That footage is somewhat funny. We are hoping Fulham beat City on Sunday and they are flying kites in training. Absolutely crazy.”

Arsenals' frustration at Fulham perhaps stems from the fact the Cottagers have taken five points off the Gunners this season. They came away from the Emirates Stadium with a point despite being down to ten men while they came from behind to beat them 2-1 at Craven Cottage over the Christmas period.
