Arsenal will play four of their six remaining Premier League encounters away from the Emirates, and if the Gunners are to snatch a Champions League spot, Alex Iwobi insists the Gunners must ‘fix up’ on the road.
In nine domestic meetings away from home since December 1st, the north-Londoners have only claimed one solitary victory, a 2-1 triumph against Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium.
Reliant on positive performances in front of a home crowd, Arsenal are only three points off Chelsea, who are currently occupying 4th in the table, although Unai Emery’s set-up have two games in hand on the Blues.
Named within Emery’s starting XI that will face Watford at Vicarage Road on Monday night, Iwobi, 22, openly expressed to the club’s official website:
“If we want to play in the Champions League then we need to fix up straight away on our away form,
“We know how vital these four away games will be and we’re going to put in our all to try and get back into the Champions League again.
In their previous top-flight outing, Arsenal succumbed to a 1-0 loss at Goodison Park. Everton frustrated and strangulated the visitors, but the Nigeria international believes that he and his teammates will atone for their inadequacies against the Hornets.
“It’s not just for the fans and our teammates but also for ourselves, we do feel very disappointed [with our recent away form]. Especially in the game against Everton where we did try our best, but it just didn’t work out. But it’s one result.” He said.
“We have to put it in the past. We’ve been working again in training to put it right in the next game against Watford.
“That winning feeling is still there. In training we’re always trying to compete, to win. [Unai Emery] makes training very intense, with lots of games where we have to try to win. It gets very competitive and we can transfer that into the games.
“He has created that winning mentality and everyone wants to fight and that’s the mentality around the team.”
