Arsene Wenger has the answer as to why Arsenal have been more convincing on the road this season.
The Gunners have started the season with 4-1 and 3-1 away wins over Hull City and Watford respectively, while also picking up a point and keeping a clean sheet against Premier League champions Leicester City.
With his side now sitting fourth in the table, the boss offered an explanation for his side’s impressive form on their travels.
“We scored three at Watford, we scored four [at Hull],” Wenger said. “We played 0-0 at Leicester but we had two or three opportunities. Away from home we look more convincing, at the moment, than at home.
“I believe that when we lost our first game [at home] it was a mental shock for us and for our supporters and straight away they had a little bit of scepticism and doubt.
“It was important for us to win the Southampton game and hopefully now we can have the same quality at home.
“The positivity comes from us and from our attitude. We have to think that we get the supporters behind us when the performances are convincing and not the other way around.”
