Unai Emery has spoken about Arsenal’s woeful away record in the Premier League which is threatening their top-four spot (via Arsenal.com).
It’s going to be the biggest thing for Unai Emery to overcome in the coming weeks as Arsenal look to secure their Champions League qualification spot.
For all their success at the Emirates, Arsenal’s away form has been embarrassingly bad in the last couple of years.
Things have improved compared to last season but the Gunners have still won just one of their last eight away Premier League matches, something which Unai Emery commented on.
“We are thinking game by game and we know we have five of seven matches away,” Emery said in his pre-match press conference.

“For us it’s a big challenge, away [from home] we want to achieve the same good performances as when we play at Emirates Stadium. We have confidence now but we know it’s very difficult and I think it’s a long way until the last matches.
“We’ll think about each match coming, [get] the information on how we can take the next matches. Now, each match is worth three points, like Sunday against Everton, which is the most important.
“We know other clubs will take a lot of points.”
It’s true that Arsenal’s away form has been woeful in recent seasons. Things have improved under Unai Emery but a more drastic turnaround is needed if the Gunners are to secure their top-four spot in the coming weeks.
