4pm Arsenal news LIVE: Fans prepare ‘Emery Out’ protest vs Frankfurt, Soyuncu transfer blow, Nuno Santo favourite – The Sun

UNAI EMERY is clinging onto his Arsenal job after yet another poor Premier League performance.

The Gunners needed an injury-time leveller from Alexandre Lacazette to salvage a point against Southampton, with the pressure now piled on the Spaniard.

And now Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has been bumped up by the bookies to become the favourite to replace Emery at Arsenal.

Meanwhile, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is being linked with a move to El Clasico rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid – and Shkodran Mustafi could be following him out of the Emirates exit.

Follow all the latest updates from the Emirates below…

  • ARSENAL fan and tennis icon Andy Murray revealed the Gunners missed out on appointing Jose Mourinho.

    He told talkSPORT: “I actually haven’t been to the ground this season.

    “But from what I’ve been reading the atmosphere has been pretty bad – and I don’t think that’s good news for the players, staff or anyone there.

    “Unless that changes quickly, a change has to be made. I love it when he’s [Mourinho] in the Premier League.

    “I just think he makes it so much more interesting, to be honest.

    “I think he would do a good job for Arsenal.

    “The one thing about him is that you know he will win. He finds ways to win matches, tournaments.

    “That would have been a great appointment.”

  • UNAI EMERY will once again be fighting for his job when Arsenal take on Eintracht Frankfurt and he may have to do so without Hector Bellerin.

    The right-back was substituted during the weekend draw with Southampton and is now officially a doubt to face the Germans.

    Diagnosed with a tight hamstring, Bellerin will be assessed before Thursday's Europa League tie but may not be risked ahead of a very busy month of fixtures.

    Here's how they could line-up…

  • UNAI EMERY hopes Arsenal fans support Granit Xhaka after confirming the axed skipper is back in contention for the Europa League clash with Frankfurt.

    The Swiss star hasn't featured since telling supporters to “f*** off” against Crystal Palace on October 27 – an X-rated rant that saw him stripped of the captain's armband.

    But amidst transfer links to Newcastle and both Milan clubs, Emery confirmed that Xhaka is back in contention.

    He said: “He’s in the group and he has the possibility to play. I hope every supporter supports him. Xhaka’s comeback is going to be important for us.”

  • UNAI EMERY reportedly gave his Arsenal flops two days off training to 'mentally recover' following their 2-2 draw against Southampton on the weekend.

    A chorus of boos once again echoed around the Emirates after the North London side required a 96th minute equaliser from Alexandre Lacazette to snatch a point.

    The Gunners – who face German side Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League tonight – haven't won any of their last six games in all competitions.

    And instead of preparing for the game and working on their defensive frailties, Emery is claimed to have given his squad time off.

    According to The Daily Mail, the 48-year-old allowed his players to miss two days of training to give them a psychological break following their shocking form.

    They add that his decision was met by surprise from members of the club, but Emery felt it was more beneficial for the squad to rest and recover rather than be out on the training pitch.

  • ARSENAL fans are planning a protest against Unai Emery during tonight's Europa League clash with Eintracht Frankfurt which is set for the lowest ever Emirates attendance.

    The Spaniard is under intense pressure in North London despite claiming yesterday he “still feels the love” from Gunners' chiefs.
