Manchester United have won their last nine league and cup games against Fulham at Old Trafford, scoring 23 goals.
Fulham have avoided defeat at United only once in 49 years – a 3-1 Premier League victory in October 2003, when Lee Clark, Steed Malbranque and Junichi Inamoto scored for the visitors.
They have conceded 16 goals on their last six league trips to Old Trafford, and failed to score in the last five of those.
United’s 1-0 defeat by Everton on Monday night marked only the fourth time that they have lost their opening Premier League match of the season – and the first since 2004.
They have gone on to win the league title in two of the three previous seasons in which they lost their opening game: 1992-93 and 1995-96.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s side are unbeaten in the league at Old Trafford in 2012, winning eight of their nine fixtures at home and keeping seven clean sheets.
They have only conceded seven goals in their last 12 league matches – five of them against Everton.
Fulham are vying to start a top-flight season with back-to-back wins for the first time in the club’s history.
They had the fourth worst away record in the Premier League last season, earning only four wins and 17 points from 19 matches. However, three of those wins came in their last seven attempts.
Fulham were the only side in the top flight last season not to have a player sent off.
