Arsenal News: Raul Sanllehi Meeting, Unai Emery Ultimatum, Kieran Tierney Criticism

It was another weekend without a win for Unai Emery and Arsenal.

And the pressure is only going to mount on the Spaniard’s shoulders.

It is now five games without a win in the Premier League, and it was almost a really embarrassing weekend for the Gunners.

Alexandre Lacazette struck a 96th minute equaliser to spare Arsenal’s blushes against a Southampton side in the bottom three.

There is nowhere to hide for Emery or his players, as we enter a hectic run of fixtures both domestically and in Europe.

With that in mind, there are some talking points from  the past 24 hours, with plenty of focus on Emery’s future.

Raul Sanllehi meeting

Unai Emery’s job is on the line.

Although that is not what directors Raul Sanllehi and Vinai Venkatesham have said of late.

Prior to the international break, Emery was given a vote of confidence from the duo, with a statement saying they had full faith in the Spaniard to turn things around.

A draw with Southampton will not have helped in that regard though.

Could they really change their minds just one match later?

It transpires there may well have been a meeting – in the dressing room – between Sanllehi, Venkatesham and Emery.

Sanhelli and Edu looked furious after the draw against Southampton and there could be trouble looming for Emery.

The chants

Chants about being sacked in the morning usually come from opposition fans towards a manager under pressure.

So when they come from your own supporters you know something is awry.

That was the case at the Emirates on Saturday, with the Gunners supporters making their feelings known.


Kieran Tierney criticism

There were plenty of poor performances at the Emirates on Saturday.

Nothing is going right for Unai Emery right now and one of his summer signings, who has drawn praise up until now, was in the firing line on Saturday afternoon.

Tierney’s crosses were not spot on as usual with only about three actually making it past a Southampton player.

Moreso, he gave away the penalty from which James Ward-Prowse scored the rebound to put Saints 2-1 up.

It was generally one of those bad days for the Scot but with Arsenal, all it takes is one game and you could turn the villian in no time.

Eitherway, the one man that has it all to think about is Unai Emery.

As per Independent, Emery will now be given the next four games to turn things around or there could be a potential sacking awaiting, with Freddie Ljungberg the man to stand in as care-taker manager
