History of the Arsenal v Fulham fixture

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.

Recent respective form guides

Arsenal have been playing quite well at home, winning 3, drawing 2, and losing just 1. A total of 8 goals have been scored by the Gunners in those games, with 5 conceded.

Arsenal sit in a healthy 4th in the league, and have picked up 63 points from their 35 games. Fulham find themselves struggling down in 15th position in the league having picked up 36 points from their 35 matches.
