Arsene Wenger admits that Arsenal must improve their away form as they look to rise up the table.
Last season, the Gunners won 35 points on the road as they boasted the joint-best away record in the Premier League.
This term, they have won three of their nine matches outside Emirates Stadium and the boss is looking to rectify that as quickly as possible.
"We will work on it and improve on it. Usually we are not bad on set pieces defensively, we have one of the better records at it in the league"
“I feel that we have not been efficient enough away from home,” Wenger said. “In our last two away games we were not strong enough defensively, not at Stoke and not at Liverpool.
“There’s disappointment [after the result at Anfield] because we conceded a goal in the last minute. You can’t concede goals on corners at any minute in the game and we were caught because we were not organised quickly enough on the corner.
“We will work on it and improve on it. Usually we are not bad on set pieces defensively, we have one of the better records at it in the league. Occasionally it can happen.
“But overall I don’t think the result is a disaster and it’s a fair result considering the run of the game.”
