Arsenal secured an emphatic 3-0 win against Fulham this weekend, and in doing so, the north London giants set quite a sensational Premier League record.

As per OptaJoe, Arsenal have become the first side in English Football League history to win five consecutive London derbies away from home without conceding a goal, with the Gunners doing the business this season against Crystal Palace, Brentford, Chelsea, Tottenham and now Fulham.

Arsenal’s away record is by far the best in the Premier League this season, with the Gunners winning an incredible 11 out of the 14 matches on the road, scoring the most out of any side and conceding the joint-fewest alongside Newcastle United.

Why Pele Is Overrated.

And Mikel Arteta’s side have now been thoroughly rewarded by setting one of the most astounding records in English football, with Arsenal now the first team ever to win five London derbies consecutively without conceding a single goal.

With one last London away day to go this season in the form of West Ham, Arsenal could make it a clean-sweep of results in the English capital if they can secure another flawless win against David Moyes’ side, and many supporters will want the Gunners to go for the entire haul.

Away days used to be Arsenal’s kryptonite, with the 2017/18 and 2020/21 seasons particularly known for how poor the Gunners performed when not on Emirates soil. However, things could not be more different this time around, and it’s a testament to how good the Gunners have been this campaign.

Arteta is leading the club’s first real title charge in almost a decade, and winning on the road will be key if the north London side are to lift the Premier League title come to the end of the season, with wins in London against rival clubs a crucial factor.
