IKTS Week 4: At home to Manchester United.

Arsenal gifted two goals and two points to Fulham despite being up one man. An early gifted goal and a late gifted goal despite a penalty converted by Saka and a goal by Nketiah, both on actions featuring Fabio Vieira, meant that the experimental formation that included Partey as an inverted right sided full back should be shelved.
