History of the Arsenal v Fulham fixture

Arsenal prepare to entertain Fulham at Highbury on Sunday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The Gunners have won an impressive 16 of the 17 meetings between the two sides, drawing the other 1.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Highbury was less than a year ago, in February 2003, the Gunners carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Premiership match.
