Arsenal's hopeless away form leaves their top four ambitions out in the open after defeat at Wolves

Arsenal once again lost away from home on Wednesday, losing 3-1 against Wolves, in what was a truly embarrassing performance from the Gunners, leaving their hopes of getting a Champions League spot well and truly up in the air.

Arsenal were utterly horrible against Wolves, spraying plenty of loose passes all around the pitch, whilst the defence was as open as ever, leaving plenty of Wolves players unmarked.

The Gunners have been woeful this season away from home, winning just six of their 17 away games in the league this season. To make matters even more embarrassing, the wins that they did manage to get away from home were not convincing at all. These wins include ones against newly-promoted Cardiff and Fulham early on in the season, extremely out of form Bournemouth, strugglers Newcastle, bottom-placed Huddersfield, and a very unconvincing and undeserved win against Watford.

This loss against Wolves really summed up their season as a whole, with them being brilliant at home, where they have got 14 wins from a possible 18, yet dreadful away.

What is really troubling for Arsenal, is that the game-in-hand that they were counting on to get back into the top four, is now gone, and with all of the teams still having three matches to play, Arsenal still have away trips to Leicester and Burnley in their coming matches.

Arsenal have to get their act together, as they cannot afford another season playing Europa League football.

Take nothing away from Wolves, as they were utterly brilliant once again against a top six side, as the club has now beaten Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham, whilst also getting a respectable draw against Manchester City.
