Wenger beaten yet again: The stats behind Arsenal's abysmal away record

Petr Cech is unable to explain Arsenal's struggles on the road which have delivered just three Premier League away victories all season.

And according to Magpies winger Matt Richie, there is a "fantastic feeling" now permeating through St. James' Park and the whole of Tyneside.

Red Bull Salzburg ace Valon Berisha - who has starred in the Europa League this season - is understood to be a target, but with Perez firing on all cylinders, Benitez may look to scale back his spending on a new playmaker, bringing in somebody to compete with Perez rather than simply replace him.

Arsenal's board are concerned that the decline in attendance figures could affect the club commercially, believing that the visual resentment between the fans and the manager could be detrimental to the club as a whole, with some board members believing Wenger must leave at the end of the season in order to resolve the issue. Even when results weren't quite going our way, we were never rolled over or went down without a fight.

'We have one more year of contract and now the board are trying that we talk a little bit about the future because the talk now is always about projects.

"We needed to work had, we didn't in the first half but much more in the second half - defending and playing counter attack against a really good team". We are in a position where we must win all our remaining games and hope it lifts us in the table. There's a good feeling.

"We are in the two competitions, so we need to keep switching between them and do our best", he said.

"In the Europa League we have a semifinal to play, so we need to make sure we are ready".

The goal was created by a fantastic long ball from Shkodran Mustafi, which found Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who in turn played a great cross into the path of Lacazette, who volleyed home from close range with his right foot to give the visitors the lead.
