Fulham prepare to entertain Arsenal at Craven Cottage on Wednesday evening, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, winning 26.32 of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Craven Cottage was less than a year ago, in March 2006, where Arsenal annihilated the Cottagers 0-4 in a Premiership match.

Recent respective form guides
Fulham's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Cottagers have scored 4, a worringly large 7 have been leaked at the other end.
Arsenal's away form is none too clever either, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. The games have constituted a decent return of 8 goals for the Gunners, and 3 goals against.
Fulham see themselves just below half way in the Barclays Premiership, showing a record of 17 points from their 14 games played so far, Arsenal find themselves in a respectable 6th position, courtesy of the 22 points they have accumulated from 13 games.
