Arsene Wenger unhappy with Arsenal away form

The focus will nearly certainly be on the Europa League, knowing that a win provides both a trophy and Champions League football, but it's going to be a delicate balancing act for a manager in whom there is ever-diminishing faith.

The Gunners will take on Manchester City in the League Cup final at Wembley later this month.

Their best route into the competition now could be by winning the Europa League and the report understands there are concerns at the impact another year outside the Champions League will have on revenue streams.

But Wenger insisted that the top flight remains his priority even after watching Manchester United get in via the back door last season despite finishing sixth in the Premier League.

We were believed to have shown an interest in Jonny Evans in both of our last two windows, but failed to offer a fair amount, and we will likely have to face some serious competition for his signature come the summer, with the Northern Ireland worldwide likely to be available for lowly £3 Million, depending on whether his side retain their Premier League status or not.

However, Tottenham were comfortable 1-0 winners against Arsenal in the derby clash at Wembley on Saturday afternoon following Harry Kane's headed victor.

They are now seven points adrift of Tottenham, with only 11 games left in the season.

Also, when you consider the defensive errors that keep happening, I can not see Arsenal avoiding defeat.

Asked if Lacazette, who was Arsenal's previous record signing, is suffering from a lack of confidence, Wenger said: "For him, one against one with the keeper, he is a good goalscorer. We are obviously speculating, but it is a weird one that is hard to pinpoint, because in some games they can show us that they can do it".

Many supporters, pundits and observers alike praised the deal and highlighted how Lacazette was the exact player Arsenal needed as they bid to regain their status as a top four club. "I believe that our away record is one of the worst it's been since I've been in England", Wenger told the Evening Standard.
