Why is this Premier League record working against Arsenal?

The North London outfit Arsenal failed again to deliver a win against Man City in the Premier League challenge on Saturday evening.

The Mikel Arteta men feel 1-0 despite pulling an impressive performance in the game and that has created more concerns about the stance of the North London outfit in their ranking against big teams.

It has been observed that the North London outfit keeps the worst Premier League record among the big sides as they have not won a single away game against any of the top six teams since February 2015.

It is suggested that this record is still working against the club and the Gunners are still helpless in doing away with it.

Pundits have hailed the North London outfit as being a better and improved team with a new manager and a better squad but that has yet to bring an end to the defeats against big sides in the Premier League.

It has been argued that the bad results against big sides in away games keep reducing the chances of the team in securing a top-four spot for a Champions League qualification.

However, the target of the Gunners boss, Mikel Arteta is to break the jinx this season and ensure a Champions League finding for the club.
