Arsenal’s 1-2 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League may signal the beginning of the end of Emery’s tenure as Gunners now go seven matches without a win across all competitions. The Gunners have not endured such long streak of bad luck since 1992.
The Gunners who are currently top of the Group F table in the Europa Championships hosted Germany’s Eintracht Frankfurt at the Emirates on Thursday.
One would think that this would have been a walk in the park for Emery’s men as Eintracht have not defeated an English team away since 1967.
Arsenal began the first half looking very strong as they led on ball possession throughout the half. Eintracht were able to fend off Arsenal’s attacks but their luck ran our just before the half time whistle when 30 year old Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang managed to find the net send Arsenal in to the break leading 1-0.
Arsenals performance in the second half was nothing short of appalling as their defensive line broke down, a situation Eintracht were more then happy to and ready to take advantage of.
Frankfurt midfielder Daichi Kamada scored the equalizer for his side in the 55th minute and then came back 9 minutes later to score Frankfurt’s second goal of the match. eintrach were now leading 1-2. Arsenal were not able to respond to this and lost their home match.
The final whistle of the game was followed with the sound of jeering and booing coming from the Arsenal supporters with many of them wanting Emery’s scalp for giving away the early lead.
Although they are still top of the group, Arsenal’s bad performance recently has got onlookers wondering how much longer Emery can survive as Arsenal manager as supporters are already asking for his head with #EmeryOut already trending
