Ahead of the first fixture of the season, whereby Fulham entertain Norwich City at Craven Cottage, we`ve delved into the record and form books to come up with a few facts and figures.

? When it comes to opening day fixtures, Fulham have a good record, winning 4 of the last 8, drawing 1 and losing 3.

? Norwich City, on the other hand, have only won 1 of their last 14 opening day fixtures, losing 7 and drawing 6.

? Fulham are on a good run when it comes to fixtures against Norwich City, winning 6 of the last 7 encounters in the league, in doing so they`ve also kept clean sheets on 5 occasion

? The last time Norwich won an away game against Fulham was back in January 1986. Since then, in 10 fixtures, Fulham have won 8 and drawn 2.

? Fulham will be looking for Tom Cairney to carry on the good form he showed last season whereby he made more successful passes than any other player in the Championship 3354 and created more chances than any other player in the division 118.
