Footymad preview History of the Fulham v Arsenal fixture

Fulham prepare to entertain Arsenal at Craven Cottage at tea-time on Monday, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 12 of the 24 previous games, with the Cottagers winning just 7.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Craven Cottage was less than a year ago, in May 2011, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a Premier League match.
