Comparing Arsene Wenger's Premier League record to Sir Alex Ferguson's

Craig Burley says Arsenal continue to get worse every year as the FC crew grade the Gunners' season so far.

Manchester United will try to avoid losing three consecutive Premier League away games for the first time in more than 20 years when they head to Vicarage Road on Tuesday to face Watford.

United, who lost at Huddersfield Town on Oct. 21 and at Chelsea on Nov. 5, last took a third successive Premier League away defeat on Jan. 1, 1996, when they fell 4-1 to Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane.
