Unai Emery has responded to criticism from Arsenal fans and has called on his side to improve their away form ahead of a trip to Premier League strugglers Huddersfield on Saturday.
Arsenal have lost two of their last four matches in all competitions and were outclassed by Manchester City in a 3-1 defeat last Sunday.
Emery’s men have also lost their last three Premier League away games and have not recorded a win on the road since beating Bournemouth in November last year.
Emery admitted he is his own biggest critic as he spoke at a news conference on Thursday, but remained confident his team can return to winning ways against Huddersfield, who are bottom of the Premier League and have won just two matches all season.
“My first criticism is myself,” Emery said. “I work over anything other criticism can do to me, the work in the present and future can change our way.
“Then it’s how we are doing away, at home. We are with the possibility and opportunity to take the top four but we know it’s not easy.
“One month ago we were in the same situation but it’s not easy. We are strong at home, we need to do better away. We started very well away, changing our mentality to get more points. But now we need to recover this confidence, this performance.”
