Unai Emery is under pressure at Arsenal
Arsenal are currently on a five-game winless run as Emery’s tactics and line-ups have been questioned by supporters.

Emery is set to be judged on upcoming Premier League games against struggling clubs Southampton, Norwich, Brighton and West Ham, in addition to the visit of champions Man City on December 15.

It has been alleged that some staff fear the club has lost its ‘heart and soul’ since Arsene Wenger left last year.

One source told the Mirror: “The DNA that made ­Arsenal the club it was has slowly but surely drained away.

“Appointments have been made – both before and after Wenger’s departure – that either didn’t work out or aren’t working out.

Arsenal will be in desperate need of a result when Premier League football returns this weekend
Emery was given a vote of confidence following Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat to top four rivals Leicester last weekend.

And the Spaniard insists the Gunners can still secure Champions League football for the 2020/21 campaign.

“When we win they [the fans] are going to be happy and this is my challenge now.”

When asked whether Arsenal still had a chance of making it into the top four, Emery said: “Yes of course.

“That is very equal, that’s competition. There are another two teams with the same target – Manchester United and Tottenham.

“But I think we can and we have time to be consistent for the next matches and we have 38 matches and can make up the difference.”
