Emery aiming to reconnect with fans as Arsenal look at successors

Granit Xhaka

Xhaka has been at Arsenal since 2016

Arsenal won the first match between the two 3-0 thanks to goals from Joe Willock, Bukayo Saka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

They have drawn their last three Premier League games at home and that is a massive cause for concern.

Unai Emery admits opponents are now "fearless" when they come up against his Arsenal team as he battles to save his job.

The former Porto chief led wealthy Wanderers to the Championship title in 2018 and then eighth place and Europa League qualification last season, with Wolves now fifth in the table.

The former Arsenal midfielder has been touted as a possible candidate to take over from Unai Emery at The Emirates following the north London club's stuttering form this season.

Many decent names would continue to revolve around the Arsenal role but the state and delicacy of the current situation puts Ljungberg as the best solution to salvage the mess Unai Emery has made at the club.

One source described missing out again as a "disaster" for their plans.

"They are angry and they are now disappointed, but we are as well".

Arsenal have overhauled their management structure, bringing in Sanllehi and Edu.

Less than 30,000 spectators had been present for that game, despite Arsenal claiming it had in fact sold out, and the hierachy became increasingly concerned with no-shows in the final years of Arsene Wenger's tenure. But their continued struggles under Emery leave them in danger of letting a major opportunity pass them by.

Shortly after that result, some of the supporters have called for the dismissal of the manager but Ornstein has now stated that the Spanish tactician will remain at the helm for the midweek Europa League clash.

Per the report, Emery's future is hanging by a thread as the hierarchy have begun the process of finding a replacement for the former Sevilla and PSG manager, with Max Allegri and Nuno Espirito Santo the frontrunners to take charge. If they miss out, the club fear they will have no chance of retaining or attracting the right players to strengthen the squad and keep their plans on track. I know we need to show our supporters our capacity and our skills.

"We are doing OK, there is a lot of room to improve, it requires a lot of work, but this is what we have been doing since day one when we started in the Championship", Nuno said.
