With just twelve games to go till the end of the season, Arsenal find themselves in a good position in the table and are in touching distance of the summit. Despite the recent problems, most fans will be reasonably happy and would have surely taken this at the beginning of the season.
However, improvements have to be made. Apart from the Gunners’ new-found difficulty in scoring goals, there is also the problem of away form. Arsenal have won just two of their last SEVEN away League games, a record which needs to improve considering that Arsene Wenger’s side face away fixtures against the likes of Manchester United, Spurs, Everton, West Ham and Manchester City in the run-up to the title.
Surely, these games will be detrimental in Arsenal’s chase of the elusive Premier League trophy. Make no mistake about it, if the team do not make an improvement in the away form, winning the title will not just be difficult but almost impossible. Look at it this way, two wins from the remaining six away games will see the Gunners dropping between 8-12 points, and that will surely end Arsenal’s hopes of winning the title.
But with the injured players slowly coming back and the fixture congestion beginning to come down, Arsenal fans can hope that the team will start to find some consistency on the road. With just two defeats and three draws at home all season, the home form is reasonably good. But to go all the way to the title, surely an improvement in away form is necessary.
