Arsenal 2-1 Fulham
FULHAM'S travel sickness continued as Samir Nasri's double earned Arsenal the points at the Emirates.
Diomansy Kamara had cancelled out the Frenchman's opener, but the Whites had no reply as he struck the decisive blow 15 minutes from the end.
Arsenal flew out of the blocks, with Mark Schwarzer denying Andrey Arshavin from point-blank range, while Nasri poked an effort wide.
But Fulham weren't so lucky third time around as Nasri cut inside of Brede Hangeland and Aaron Hughes before lashing the ball past Schwarzer from six yards.
However, the Whites levelled on the half-hour mark totally against the run of pay.
Clint Dempsey played in Kamara, and the Senagalese striker slotted the ball beyond Lukasz Fabianski.
Kamara should've put the visitors ahead on the stroke of half-time when her latched onto Dickson Etuhu's pass, but Fabianski stuck out a foot to keep the scores level.
Arsene Wenger's men started the second-half as they did the first, with Tomas Rosicky's rasper fizzing just wide.
Schwarzer had to be at his best to deny Arshavin, but the Aussie could do nothing about Arsenal's winner.
Robin Van Persie played in Nasri, who rode two tackles before rounding the Fulham keeper and slotting the ball into the empty net.
Zoltan Gera had an effort tipped wide as the visitors pushed for a point, but they couldn't find a way back as the hosts held on for victory.
