There are any number of different reasons that have been pointed to in order to explain why Arsenal keep coming up short in the hunt for the Premier League title and it is very unlikely to be just one of them, but a combination of certain factors like the almost constant injury crisis and the pressure of expectation from the Arsenal fans and the players’ failure to deal with it.
Some factors, however, could be more important than others and it is hard to ignore the impact that our awful record in big away games has had on our chances of being crowned champions of England. This season looks like being a tighter title race than usual with as many as six different clubs having the potential to win it, so doing well against those mai8n rivals could be vital.
Unfortunately a Metro report shows that Wenger and Arsenal just do not seem able to get results against the likes of Chelsea and Manchester United away from home, as our last 17 away games against the other sides currently in the top six have produced just two Arsenal wins and the most recent of those was two seasons ago at the Etihad.
We have already failed three more times this season with draws at Man United and Tottenham and a loss at Man City and if the trend continues at Chelsea and Liverpool I really cannot see this season ending our wait for the EPL trophy, can you? If the Gunners can get a rare victory at Stamford Bridge, however, could it be the springboard to an Arsenal title?
