As we await the start of what should be an entertaining fixture against our London rivals, Arsenal, this lunch-time, at Craven Cottage, we’ve uncovered three statistics that could provide you with food for thought.
1 – The record books show that the result of this fixture tends to favour Arsenal. The last 30 meetings between the two sides in the top-flight of English football have seen Arsenal register 21 wins and draws, with Fulham winning on just the 3 occasions, the last of which was way back in January 2012.
2 – When it comes to meetings between the two sides, at Craven Cottage, Arsenal have won the last 2, both of those victories coming in 2013, the first in the second half of the 2012 / 2013 season and the second coming in the first half of the following season.
3 – Encounters between these two sides can be feisty affairs. The last 4 meetings between Fulham and Arsenal, at Craven Cottage, have seen the red card flashed on four occasions with each side being the recipient on 2 occasions.
Hopefully, considering all the above, the Cottagers can make it a 4th win in 31 games and it’ll be Arsenal who are reduced to 10-men.
