Emery wants Arsenal players to seek immediate cure for travel sickness

The Gunners have only won four times on the road under the Spanish manager.
By Mark Mann-Bryans, | 9d

Unai Emery believes the mentality of his Arsenal players needs to improve if they are to address their constant failings away from home in the Premier League.

The Gunners have won four games on the road so far since the Spaniard took charge last summer and have struggled away from the Emirates Stadium for some time.

With just 17 away wins out of the 50 games played since August 2016, the issue has been something Emery would have been keen to resolve when he replaced Arsene Wenger.

“We started very well away, changing our mentality, but now we need to recover this confidence, to recover this performance and the next opportunity is Saturday against Huddersfield.”
- Arsenal boss Unai Emery

A trip to rock-bottom Huddersfield hands Arsenal a chance to win their away first league game in six, a 3-1 defeat to Manchester City last weekend the latest bout of travel sickness.

"Maybe both," Emery replied when asked if poor away form was due to tactical or mental reasons.

"It can be... at the end, the reason we didn't take the same balance as we have shown at home.

"I spoke with the players (and told them) we need to think this match is very important for us and every player needs to be ready, be focused and be thinking we need to win this match.

The loss at City saw Arsenal outplayed for much of the contest, with some supporters taking to social media to criticise the team – as well as Emery's tactics.

A number even went as far as to call for Emery to be sacked as the 47-year-old faced the largest wave of negativity since his appointment.

"My first critic is always myself," he added.

"I work over the criticisms of me because I know that work in the present can change our way. How we are doing at home and away, we are with the possibility and the opportunity of (finishing in) the top four."
