Arsenal's away record in 2018 even worse than League Two losers Chesterfield

Their haunting record on the road is even worse than Chesterfield, who were relegated from League Two last month.

Last night's 3-1 defeat at Leicester was their SEVENTH away loss in a row since the turn of the year.

In fact, the Gunners have only won once outside of the Emirates in 2018 – a 2-0 win in Milan in the Europa League in March.

Draws at Chelsea in the Carabao Cup and CSKA Moscow in Europe have hardly masked the issue.

Chesterfield, relegated into non-league after Morecambe drew with Cambridge last month, managed to get five points on their travels this year.

Relegated Stoke have also taken more points with four.

As have Swansea, who are in desperate need of a miracle to beat the drop.

Last month, Arsene Wenger admitted his players have been suffering mentally.

He said: "Of course it’s a concern because traditionally we have a very strong record away from home.


Arsenal – 0 points

Watford – 1 point

Leeds – 3 points

Brighton – 3 points

Bolton – 4 points

Swansea – 4 points

Stoke – 4 points

Chesterfield – 5 points

Bristol City – 5 points

Port Vale – 5 points

“It has a subconscious weight in our minds.

“Once you’re in a negative spiral like that, it’s very difficult to get out.

“It’s a bit the story of the season."

Arsenal have a chance to salvage at least a point in their final Premier League clash of the season away at Huddersfield.
