D-DAY // Fulham's 13-year spell in the Premier League will come to an end on Saturday if they fail to record all three points, whilst Sunderland register a victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
FORTRESS // With exception of the current top five teams in the Premier League (Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, Everton), no team has accumulated more points at home that the Potters (33).
IMPRESSIVE // Of teams to have played a minimum 100 Premier League home games, Stoke have lost the fewest (27).
SURPRISING // Despite the Potters' magnificent home record in the Premier League, only five points have been accrued from the final home matches of the season in each of the past five campaigns. (won 1, draw 2, lost 2)
ON THE ROAD // If only away points counted this season, Fulham would be outside the relegation zone on 14 points, while Stoke would be in it with 11.
VETERANS // The Cottagers have named the eight oldest starting elevens in the Premier League this season.
TARGET // Should Mark Hughes’ side claim all three points this weekend, it would represent their joint highest points tally in the Club’s Premier league history. (47 in 2009/10).
HISTORY // The Potters have the opportunity of securing a top-flight top-ten finish this weekend for the first time since the 1974/75 season – almost 40 years ago.
AWAY DAY BLUES // Fulham have won just 38 of their 246 Premier League away fixtures. A win percentage of just 15.4%.
CONTRAST // The Potters have conceded 299 goals in 226 Premier League appearances, whilst Fulham have shipped in 79 goals in just 36 fixtures this term.
LEAKY // Only three teams have conceded more goals that the 79 Fulham have shipped in and not been relegated from the top-flight. They are Wigan (79 in 2009/10), Oxford (80 in 1985/86) and Luton (84 in 1982/83).
CREAM OF THE CROP // Stoke City need just two points from the final two games of the campaign to become the highest placed Midlands team for the first ever time.
NARROW // The Potters and Fulham have both scored in only two of the previous 16 encounters between the two sides, with the last three finishing 1-0 to the home side.
