Arsene Wenger has admitted that Arsenal are reliant on their away form at the moment, as he prepares his side to face Premier League stragglers Reading at the Madejski Stadium, the
The match will be Arsenal’s first since they were eliminated from the Capital One Cup on penalties by League Two side Bradford City last week, and the first meeting between the Royals and the Gunners since the epic 12-goal thriller in the prior round of the same competition. Arsenal eventually prevailed 7-5 after extra time.
Despite a victory in their last home game, Wenger feels Arsenal have at times struggled in front of their own fans. Arsenal beat West Bromwich Albion 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium last weekend, thanks to a pair of Mikel Arteta penalties, but have won only four of their eight home league games thus far this season, drawing two and losing two.
Wenger said: “Our results are quite consistent and good away from home.” He added: “If you look at our season at the moment, we have not produced our performances at home. We’ve had more draws, especially at home and that is where we have lost the points.”
