Arsenal prepare to entertain Fulham at Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The Gunners have won an impressive 18 of the 20 meetings between the two sides, drawing the other 2.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Emirates Stadium was just last season, in August 2005, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-1 thriller, in a Premiership match.
