After Emery’s honeymoon period as Wenger’s replacement, when we saw Arsenal go on an amazing 22-game unbeaten run, things have now gone swiftly downhill, especially away from home. After our first unlucky away defeat at Chelsea we went six games without a loss on the road, but now we are in the opposite position of not having any wins at all in our last six.
That must change this week when we travel to bottom of the table side Huddersfield, or we can forget any chance of us finishing in the Top Four. As Bernd Leno said after the defeat at the Etihad: “…I think we are still in a good position to go to the top four. We still have big games and I think we need more away wins, because at home we play very good. We win many games at home, but I think to go into the top four again we need more away wins.”
We definitely need one to break the losing run, as if we don’t beat the relegation favourites, who in fact have lost their last six home games, then our confidence will be destroyed for our following away games as well. And the bad news is that our following away game after Huddersfield, is in the North London Derby at White Hart Lane.
Please God let us have a massive confidence booster before that game!
