Here are the facts and figures ahead of our visit to Liverpool this weekend:

  • Liverpool convincingly lead the head-to-head between these two sides. Fulham have mustered just ten wins in 58 attempts, with 15 draws, leaving 33 defeats.
  • Our record at Anfield is pitiful and is likely to be extended tomorrow. Fulham haven’t won on any of our 28 trips to Liverpool.
  • Just to add to the overwhelming feeling of impending doom, Fulham have failed to score in six of their eight league matches at Anfield.
  • Liverpool are pretty potent at home. They have won their last eight consecutive home league games and haven’t failed to score at Anfield since West Ham kept a clean sheet in December 2008 – some 27 Premier League home games ago.
  • One more home league win will set a new club record for top-flight consecutive victories at Anfield.
  • Fernandes Torres is on a hot scoring strike at the moment and his Anfield strike rate is impressive. The Spaniard has scored an incredible 40 goals in 41 league matches at the famous stadium.
  • The cause of Liverpool’s slump this season is pretty obvious though: they’ve lost ten league games this term (including the reverse fixture at Craven Cottage) compared to two last season, when they ran Manchester United so close at the top of the table.
  • There’s still hope for their bid to qualify for their Champions’ League though. The lowest total of points after 33 games for a side who eventually finished fourth is 49 – a tally set by Liverpool back in 2002-03. Rafa Benitez’s side are currently six points better off.
  • Even despite our Wolfsburg heroics, Fulham are 15 league games without a win on the road – since beating Portsmouth at Fratton Park back in August. It’s not a new problem, either. The Whites have won only nine of their last 92 away fixtures in the top flight.
  • Fulham’s wait for an away league goal spans nine hours and five minutes now: the time since Clint Dempsey’s long-ranger at Stoke back in January.
  • Should Aaron Hughes be included in Roy Hodgson’s side, he’ll bring up a century of Premier League appearances for Fulham.
