Arsenal’s season went from bad to worse with a demoralising defeat away to Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday evening.
Arsene Wenger made some bold decisions prior to kick-off, dropping Alexis Sanchez to the bench and bringing Olivier Giroud into the fold. It was a seemingly bizarre decision when announced but in hindsight made even less sense, especially after Sanchez featured in the second half and sparked the Gunners into life.
It’s left Arsenal fans scratching their head again, wondering if Wenger’s time at the club is finally up. Does the Frenchman still know how to get the job done in the Premier League? The club are at serious risk of not finishing in the top four, something that just doesn’t happen under the leadership of the Arsenal legend.
Supporters expect their side to be challenging for the title, but as this stat from Squawka shows that’s almost impossible in the coming seasons if current trends continue. Arsenal’s record against the top six sides is simply abysmal.
Arsenal's away record against the top-6 in the Premier League since 2012/13:

Just three wins away against the top six in 4 years, results that are very far from what’s required to mount sustained title bids.
Can Wenger turn it around or will he finally leave the Emirates this summer?
