Ex-Premier League boss Alan Curbishley believes Arsenal looked beaten before the game started against Everton at the weekend. The Gunners’ Champions League hopes were dealt a massive blow after they were thrashed 3-0 by their top four rivals at Goodison Park. That result has left Arsene Wenger’s record of steering the side continually into Europe’s top competition hanging by a thread – with Everton now just a point behind with a game in hand. Arsenal have struggled away from home against the Premier League elite this term – conceding six to Manchester Ciy and Chelsea, while going down 5-1 to Liverpool. And Curbishley thinks that Arsenal’s away form has cost them, with the side appearing vulnerable on their travels. It seems they just don’t turn up in the big Premier League away games, he told Sky Sports. It was another dreadful away performance and they just don’t seem to be able to respond when they go an early goal down. Perhaps they were beaten before they ever got going. They never made their mark on the game,” he added. Read more Arsenal transfer news.
