One more defeat for Arsenal this season would see a record number of losses under Arsene Wenger’s premiership in a single campaign
It was another bad day on the road for Arsenal as they lost yet again away from home, this time a 2-1 defeat to Newcastle.
The defeat sees the north London side 13 points adrift of a coveted top four spot, however, even the most optimistic Gooner will have conceded finishing in the Champions League positions a long time ago.
One of Arsenal’s main problems is their away form and these stats reveal just how bad they have been outside of the Emirates Stadium.
The loss at St James’ Park is their fifth away league defeat on the bounce and this is the first time this has happened since December 1984, according to Opta.
In fact, Arsenal have lost all five away games they have played in the Premier League in the year 2018.
The Gunners have now racked up 11 losses altogether this season, which has equalled their worst tally of defeats under Arsene Wenger last set in the 2005/06 campaign.
And finally, to add insult to injury, Arsenal are closer to the bottom of the league than they are the top.
They are 33 points off leaders Manchester City but are only 30 points ahead of the league’s bottom side West Brom.
