There cannot be too many complaints following last nights win over Valencia, we are in the Europa League final and Unai Emry has to take a lot of credit for that.
But the win over Valencia does raise one huge question.
Why can we beat teams like Sporting Lisbon, Napoli and Valencia away from home in Europe and yet be so woeful on the road in the Premier league?
This season we have won five from seven away games in the Europa League, whereas we have won just six times from 18 away games in the Premier League and there has to be a reason for that difference.
Of course, there is context, both Valencia and Napoli had to attack because they had first leg defeats to overcome but even so, there is still a significant difference in performance from the Europa League and the Premier League away from the Emirates and Emery has to find a solution to that conundrum.
It could be that the way he sets his teams up and that his style of play is better suited to European competition but that is no good to us overall, we need a team that can adapt to the demands of all the competitions we participate in.
I do not pretend to know the answer, if I did I would be the Arsenal manager but it is Emery’s job to find an answer and he has to do that next season. If he cannot then we need a manager that can.
