Arsenal vs Frankfurt
Europa League Group F
8:00pm Thursday 28th November
The stress firmly improved on Arsenal head coach Unai Emery after Eintracht Frankfurt came from a goal down to overcome on his negative.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck in the stroke of half-time to provide an edge in the break to the Gunners, but two goals in nine moments out of Daichi Kamada turned into the game.
Arsenal pushed search of an equaliser, however they failed to actually produce anything of notice as the Bundesliga side held on for a famous victory in north London, which also retains their hopes of excellence alive.
Regardless of the defeat, the Gunners should nevertheless qualify for the round of 32 barring a five-goal defeat Standard Liege on December 12, but another bad effect leaves Emery firmly on the brink at the Emirates before the Premier League clash with Norwich on Sunday, which will be live on Sky Sports.
Before the match, Emery called on Arsenal to produce a performance to get in touch with the supporters again, but with all rows and rows of empty chairs around the floor – including a vacant away section because of ban on Eintracht Frankfurt lovers by UEFA for disorder at their away game against Vitoria – there has been an eerie setting in the Emirates Stadium.
Aubameyang missed a glorious chance to get the Arsenal fans off their chairs in the 12th minute, heading wide from six yards following Joe Willock obtained in his way.
