Arsenal prepare to entertain Fulham at Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. The Gunners have won an impressive 20 of the 22 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 2007, the Gunners carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a Premier League match.
