Fulham prepare to entertain Arsenal at Craven Cottage at tea-time on Saturday, looking to improve on a dire past record against their opponents. It does not make pleasant reading, winning 28.57 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 January 2008, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-3 winners in a Premier League match.
