Fulham prepare to entertain Arsenal at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 10 of the 20 previous games, with the Cottagers winning just 6.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Craven Cottage was just last season, in November 2006, the Cottagers carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Premiership match.
