Arsenal v Fulham: Match facts

  • Arsenal boast the only remaining 100% win record after three games in this season’s Premier League. In only four previous top-flight campaigns have the Gunners won each of their first four matches of a season: 1930-31 (first five), 1947-48 (first six), 2003-04 (first four) and 2004-05 (first five).
  • Fulham remain unbeaten in this season’s Premier League (P3 W1 D2 L0); in their top-flight history, only in 2010-11 have they avoided defeat in their opening four matches of a campaign.
  • Arsenal have won each of their last four Premier League home games, netting at least four times in the last two (5-1 v Everton, 4-2 v Leicester). The Gunners haven’t scored 4+ goals in three consecutive home league games since May-September 2010 (4-0 v Fulham, 6-0 v Blackpool, 4-1 v Bolton).
  • Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 33 Premier League home games against promoted sides (W28 D5) since a 1-0 loss to Newcastle in November 2010. It’s the Gunners’ longest ever such unbeaten run in the competition, and the longest ongoing run of all teams.
  • Fulham have won just one of their last 15 Premier League meetings with Arsenal (D5 L9) and are winless in eight since a 2-1 home win in January 2012.
  • Arsenal have lost none of their 30 home meetings with Fulham in all competitions (W24 D6) – only Blackburn against Grimsby (31) have faced a side at home more often without ever losing in English football.
  • Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic fired in more shots (15) than any other player across the opening three matches of this season’s Premier League, over half of which came against Brentford last time out (eight). The Serbian’s three goals this season are as many as he scored in 27 Premier League appearances in Fulham’s last campaign in the top-flight (2020-21).
  • Gabriel Jesus has been involved in five goals in his first three Premier League appearances for Arsenal (2 goals, 3 assists), the most of any Gunners player in their first three games for the club in the competition. He’s also had four goals and four assists in his last four Premier League starts against newly promoted opponents.
  • After ending a 24-match Premier League winless run in London derbies with a 3-2 win over Brentford, Fulham are looking to win consecutive top-flight London derbies for the first time since winning three in a row between January and April 2013 under Martin Jol.
  • This will be Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta’s 100th Premier League game in charge, making him the 14th different manager to reach 100 league games in charge of the Gunners. Only two of the previous 13 have lost their milestone game (Herbert Chapman in 1927, George Swindin in 1960), with the most recent two managers to do so both winning (George Graham in 1988, Arsene Wenger in 1999).
