Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that the Gunners do not find themselves in any complex situations while playing top teams away from home. Arsenal have not won any of their last 13 trips to the top five teams in the Premier League.
Ahead of Arsenal's showdown against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge tomorrow, Wenger's team have lost the last five matches away to the current Premier League champions. The French manager had a hilarious counter when asked about his concern with regards to Arsenal's away form.
Wenger told Independent, "Look, if you look at my record, you will see I played two years in the Premier League without losing a game away from home."

The Frenchman believes away form is not much of a problem at Arsenal as he said, "Last year, until we lost at Everton [2-1 in December 2016], we had not lost away from home for a whole year. After that, we lost at Man City, that’s true that it gave us a problem of confidence away from home - but I don’t really believe in that."
He continued with his opinion and said, "The pitch is 105 metres long and 68 metres wide, everywhere, and never in my life I could accept or understand that it’s different away from home. It’s just a question of how much you want it, it’s about football, it’s a good opportunity to show that and that we have that quality."
Wenger will look to motivate his team to change his record when Arsenal travel to Stamford Bridge tomorrow.
