Matchday discussion: Fulham vs. Arsenal

Matchday discussion: Fulham vs. Arsenal

I’d be lying if I said I was looking forward to the afternoon trip to the Emirates, but Saturdays with Fulham in action are invariably much better than those without. I’ve decided to focus on the positives to start off this morning’s matchday thread. Dan has already explained how the Whites’ lone victory at Highbury disproves the commonly cited statistic that Fulham has never defeated Arsenal. Despite having a terrible league record when playing the Gunners away, there have been some amazing moments.

Thanks to a magnificent stoppage-time penalty save by Mark Schwarzer, Mikel Arteta’s team, led by Martin Jol, rallied to share the victory at the Emirates in 2012.

The following are some of the events that afternoon’s highlights are well worth viewing:.

Then there was Edwin van der Sar’s outstanding performance at Highbury in November 2003. We wish Bernd Leno, a former goalkeeper for Arsenal, the best of luck in his remarkable recovery from illness and trust that he will once again be a model citizen when he visits his former club. Below, you can see all of Edwin’s saves.

We must not pass up the chance to recall Junichi Inamoto’s brilliance, who Arsene Wenger hardly ever gave a chance to. In addition to scoring in a storied victory at Old Trafford, the Japanese midfielder will be remembered for once helping us win it.

Roy Hodgson’s side got a goalless draw in 2009 on the way to the Whites’ highest-ever league finish, but otherwise the stats make grim reading:.

The worst competitive record between two professional teams in English football is held by Fulham, who have lost all 31 league or cup games they have played at Arsenal.

Only six draws have been accomplished by the Whites.
Since 2012, when Steve Sidwell and Bobby Zamora secured a comeback victory at Craven Cottage, Fulham has failed to win any of their last ten games against Arsenal.

In sixteen meetings, they haven’t maintained a clean sheet.
In their last nineteen London derbies in the top division, Fulham has only won one.

Last season, Marco Silva’s team lost all five of their away games by a single goal, earning just one point against the top five teams.

Raul Jimenez, a center forward, has gone 25 Premier League games without scoring. But at the 29th attempt, the Whites might become the first team ever to win their first two top flight away games in a season.
