Tottenham Hotspur, not Arsenal, have the worst Premier League away win record in 2019 of any team to feature in both the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons.

Excluding teams that were relegated in 2018/19, and those that were promoted in 2019/20 – for obvious reasons – Tottenham Hotspur have the worst away win record in the Premier League this year.

Squawka were the ones to highlight the stat, confirming Spurs have won just two of their 11 away games. Arsenal have won four of 12, which is marginally better.

This isn’t to try and justify Arsenal’s away record whatsoever, as it’s still extremely poor. Clearly they’re not the only ones suffering on the road right now though.

The problem for Arsenal is that this has been going on for a very long time. It was a major problem in Arsene Wenger’s last season, it was just as much of an issue in Unai Emery’s first, and the early signs (one win in three) suggest it hasn’t gone away in his second.

The victory in Frankfurt in midweek was a different story, as many of Arsenal’s European away days have been under Emery. The Gunners now have six wins and two defeats away from home in the Europa League under the current coach, with a goal difference of +10. It just seems to be a different story back in England.

Regardless of all that, it would be nice if the mainstream media paid a little more attention to how terrible Spurs have been away from home, rather than pretending it’s only Arsenal with the issue.
