History of the Liverpool v Fulham fixture

Fulham face a trip to Liverpool at Anfield on Wednesday evening, looking to break their duck against the hosts. The Cottagers have lost on no less than 20 of the 29 visits.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in April 2010, when they played out a goalless draw in a Premier League match.
