Arsenal’s away woes emphasised by remarkably bad clean sheet record this season

Unai Emery’s debut season as Arsenal manager can be fairly judged as a good one… but it is clear there is one problem he just cannot solve.

The Gunners continue to battle for a top four finish and remain in the Europa League, and they’ve shown a real improvement from Arsene Wenger’s final term in charge.

However, Arsenal’s promising Premier League campaign is almost entirely down to their home form, with the Gunners the third best team in the division based only upon their results at the Emirates Stadium.

Things have not been so good when Arsenal travel away from home, however.

Incredibly, Arsenal currently sit 10th in the Premier League away form table, behind the likes of Leicester, Crystal Palace and Watford, as well as the other five of their top six rivals.

While Emery’s side have scored 39 goals and conceded just 12 in 17 home matches, they’ve actually conceded more than they’ve scored on their travels.
