Wenger - Why we’ve been strong away

Arsène Wenger

Arsene Wenger believes playing with freedom has been a major factor in Arsenal’s solid away form this season.

Only Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur have picked up more points on the road than Wenger’s team in 2012/13.

The boss is content with how his side have performed on their travels and feels his side benefit from opponents having to attack more on their own grounds.

“We have been strong away from home and we had a good stability,” said Wenger.

“How do you explain that? I believe that at home at the beginning of the season, we played with some fear.

“Away from home we played with more freedom and expressed more our game and maybe as well because the home teams attack more against us than they do at the Emirates. Away from home we have had a good season.”
