Arsene Wenger: Says Arsenal's away form has not been the problem this season

The Gunners have been defeated twice on their travels in the Premier League this season and only Manchester City have lost fewer away games.

Wenger believes the difference has been Arsenal's results at Emirates Stadium, while he has also bemoaned the six draws that have left them eighth in the table and 18 points adrift of Manchester United.

"I believe I have a strong team," Wenger said ahead of Monday's trip to the Madejski Stadium to take on Reading.

"If you look at our season at the moment, we have not produced our performances at home, our results away are in the same bracket as the two top teams.

"Manchester United are top of the league. They have lost three games, we have lost four. We had more draws, especially at home, that is where we have lost the points."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
