As Everton prepare to take on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, manager Sean Dyche is determined to make a major shift in the club’s performances away from home. The Toffees have had an abysmal record in away matches over the course of the season, losing seven of their twelve league matches on the road so far.
Dyche is aware that the Toffees need to reverse this poor away form if they are to challenge for a safe spot against relegation in the Premier League. To do so, he is determined to ensure that the team plays with greater intensity, focus and determination on the road. He believes that the team can become a real force if they can find a way to replicate their home form away from Goodison Park.
The Toffees have recently made some positive steps towards improving their away form, picking up a point from a draw against Southampton and a morale-boosting victory against Manchester United.
However, the task ahead for Dyche’s team is a difficult one, with Arsenal in fine form and their home record standing head and shoulders above Everton’s. The Gunners have only lost once at home in the Premier League this season, a 2-0 defeat to Manchester City.
In order to claim a victory at the Emirates, Dyche knows that the team must be fully focused, organized and ready to fight for each other. Without a doubt, the travelling Toffees will have to produce their best performance of the season if they are to take anything away from their trip to North London.
