Arsenal have been best at away games

Gunners manager Arsene  Wenger has explained why Arsenal have been best at away games this season . The manager spoke to the club’s website to analyse why his team have done well in away premiership matches  this season.

 

Wenger’s side have began their season with two consecutive wins against Hull City and Watford. They also managed to keep a clean sheet against the English Premier League champions Leicester and are now 4th on the log table.

 

However , the Gunners have not done well  at home , they lost 4-3 to Liverpool on their opening match and the coach admits that Arsenal’s shocking defeat put a mental strain on his players.

 

 

“We scored three at Watford, we scored four at Hull,” said the manager. “We played 0-0 at Leicester but we had two or three opportunities. Away from home we look more convincing, at the moment, than at home.
“I believe that when we lost our first game at home it was a mental shock for us and for our supporters and straight away they had a little bit of skepticism and doubt.
“It was important for us to win the Southampton game and hopefully now we can have the same quality at home.
“The positivity comes from us and from our attitude. We have to think that we get the supporters behind us when the performances are convincing and not the other way around.”
Arsenal are playing Chelsea at home this coming weekend and  they will be hoping to get three points in front of the home fans.Chelsea on the other hand will be no pushover as they seek to bounce back from the shocking  2-1 defeat to Liverpool on Friday.They are currently at fifth position  in the log table and they  share 10 points[ with Arsenal on top as they have a better goal difference] .
