Have away woes been following Emery before he took over Arsenal? Interesting fact about our manager you might not know
It turns the Spaniard has struggled away from home on the road in his last season with Sevilla.
Unai Emery took over the club in summer 2018 replacing Arsene Wenger. The Spaniard was summoned to improve results as the Frenchman had failed to guide the club into the Champions League for two consecutive seasons. Emery couldn't fulfil the task through the Premier League as the Gunners finished fifth. However, he still has a chance to complete the mission by winning the Europa League.
The head coach managed to improve our overall record finishing with more points compared to the last season. The Emirates has proved to be our fortress as Arsenal kept collecting points at home mainly while away from home there has been hardly an improvement on Wenger's record.
"The Gunners' away form has continued to be a cause for concern in his first season, given that they lost more games on the road than they won. But perhaps this could have been foreseen. Emery might be famed for his European exploits with Sevilla, but even his final season was far from perfect domestically.
"In fact, from one perspective it was the complete opposite: Sevilla went the entire 2015/16 campaign under Emery without a single away win in La Liga. Nine draws, 10 defeats and a seventh-place finish was the worst full season of his tenure at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan."
