Arsenal have worst home-away point disparity in PL

New, comment

At least the Gunners are the best (worst?) at something!

Arsenal has the largest gap between home and away form of any team in the Premier League, reports Football365.

And, well, that’s really not good.

The Gunners currently sit fifth in the Premier League, but suffered their sixth away defeat of the season at Everton over the weekend.

So far this season, Arsenal averages 2.59 points per game while playing at the Emirates. If Unai Emery’s men never had to venture away from home, they’d be sitting in third position.

Alas, that’s not the case. Away from North London so far in the 2018-19 Premier League season, Arsenal earns just 1.27 points per game. Simple math tells us that’s a differential of -1.32, which is by far the worst of any team in England’s top flight.

Fulham is the second worst in terms of largest gap between home and away form, with a differential of -0.82.

Here’s how the other top six sides are faring so far:

  • Manchester City = -0.69
  • Liverpool = -0.51
  • Chelsea = -0.44
  • Manchester United = -0.42
  • Tottenham = -0.13

The only Premier League side to average a better point total per game away from home this season is Crystal Palace, with a differential of +0.35.

Here’s hoping the Gunners can turn it around to finish the season!
