Sky Sports’ Oliver Yew in the Emirates Stadium…
“‘Emery Out. No tactics, no creation, nowhere to conceal'”
“Those were the words observable on a banner followed by defeated Arsenal fans throughout the second half as the Gunners suffered yet another blow beneath Unai Emery – and it’s very hard to disagree.
“There were yet more tactical changes from Emery as he changed David Luiz into a holding midfield role – an experiment which finished when the Brazilian was forced from the field because of injury early in the match.
“Despite top at half-time, the Gunners again lacked direction and looked void of any kind of confidence during the match, that was played before a sparse crowd at the Emirates Stadium. In the pitch it looked muddled again although the supervisor continuously barked orders from his discipline, once things levelled up, like finding a way out, along with the Gunners never looked.
“Panic then set in as Arsenal’s safeguarding cracked under the strain. It seemed inevitable that Frankfurt goes on to evaluate another as Kamada has been given the liberty of north west London on the edge of the Arsenal box before finding the bottom 37, and the inevitable happened.
“The tension was building amongst the home fans and it hit a crescendo because the final thing condemned Emery’s men to their worst streak since 1992. Regardless of the sparse audience, the boos were loud. They had been also making their feelings known clear and loud and it is time for the powers that be to listen.
“Decisive is not usually a word related to the decision makers in the Emirates Stadium, however they have to take charge of this situation before it is too late”
