Arsenal goalkeeper Damian Martinez produced a superb performance in his first Barclays Under-21 Premier League appearance of the season to deny Fulham victory at Motspur Park.
Martinez was one of several Gunners team changes with many of their regulars playing in the Capital One Cup tie at West Bromwich Albion.
Fulham Under-21 debutant Moussa Dembele, who scored a hat-trick to help the Cottagers win the Barclays Under-18 Premier League title in May, had two chances in the first half while at the other end Alex Iwobi was denied by Jesse Joronen.
After the break Martinez denied Chris David, Boumesca Tue and Na Bangna before making his best save from Dembele's 66th minute header.
Arsenal's best second-half chance came when Ainsley Maitland-Niles hit the post but the sides took a point apiece to maintain their unbeaten records this season.
Peterborough United reached the second round of the Under-21 Premier League Cup with a 3-2 win over Colchester United.
Shaquille McDonald, Jaanai Gordon and Peter Grant scored for Posh with Freddie Ladapo giving Colchester a 2-1 lead at one point.
Peterborough now travel to Bristol City on Monday, 28 October.
