Two quick changes were made by Mikel Arteta in the second half before Alexander Lacazette picked up a hamstring and was substituted to the disappointment of Arteta who has a number of players sidelined.

Fulham converted from the penalty spot through Maja following a Gabriel challenge that was reviewed and granted beating Ryan at the post.

They defended well throughout the match blocking attempts by Pepe and Martinelli who threatened to expose their defense.

It was the first draw after they emphatic win in the Europa League quarter final tie against Slavia Prague to book a semi final spot against their former coach Unai Emery and Spanish side Villareal.

The draw leaves the Gunners in 9th position with 46 points as Fulham retain their third last position with 27 points. Sheffield have officially been confirmed to be relegated.

Arteta now has the option of winning the Europa League to seek a Champions League qualification as he builds up his squad ahead of the coming season.
