Arsenal lose to Frankfurt in Emery’s last stand 0

Posted on November 30, 2019 by Harry Kettle

Arsenal came into the game against Eintracht Frankfurt knowing that they desperately needed a big result. Emery’s team selection was strong and it certainly appeared as if they were going to go for it, with the home side really taking the game to Frankfurt. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring for Arsenal just before half time, but from there, it all fell apart.

Slipping up

Daichi Kamada scored twice in less than 10 minutes to give the German side the advantage, and when you mix that together with some bizarre substitutions from Unai Emery, you get a defeat that signed, sealed and delivered Emery’s fate. The man himself spoke with the media after the disappointing result.

Emery & Mustafi talk to the media before Frankfurt – Part 2 0

On Frankfurt’s style of play:
SM: Frankfurt is a team with a coach who has a very good identity. You can tell their idea of the game and how they want to play. Nothing is random, they’re very coordinated. Even if you know how they play, you can’t always anticipate it as a defender. If you anticipate their attacking moves, you may open up different spaces for them to capitalise on. It’s a team with attacking strengths so you have to be focused for 90 minutes. They don’t hog possession without gaining any space. They’re very organised on the ball and want to get it back as soon as possible. It’s hard to play against teams like these. It’s not easy.

It’s safe to say that Unai Emery is feeling the pressure, and it’s also safe to say that Shkodran Mustafi isn’t exactly one of the most popular players within Arsenal’s ranks right now. So what do they do? They both get selected to take part in a press conference before the club’s vital game against Eintracht Frankfurt tonight.

Arsenal vs Eintracht Frankfurt – Preview 0

It’s time for Unai Emery to try and prove why he should continue to be the manager of Arsenal Football Club – with many expecting him to be sacked fairly imminently. You’d have to think this is his last stand, to the point where he needs a fairly convincing win that we aren’t entirely sure he’s capable of getting.

But instead of blindly being negative, we’re going to try and take a positive spin on things ahead of what is bound to be a tough showdown at the Emirates.

Arsenal players and their coach reflect on the team’s victory against Eintracht Frankfurt 0

Arsenal’s 0-3 win in the Europa League match against Eintracht Frankfurt yesterday evening sure came as a relief to coach Emery. The three goals were scored by Joe Willock, Bukayo Saka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the 38th, 85th and 88th minute, respectively, making Eintracht Frankurt concede their first home defeat in ten years.

It was 18-year-old Saka’s fifth first-team appearance and his first goal for the club this season. Speaking after the match Saka said he was very proud of his achievement, which included two assists and one goal. He said it was his dream to score for Arsenal’s first team, and now that his dream has come true he wants to “do more” for the club. Saka is now the youngest player who scored for the Gunners in Europa League, having turned 18 only a couple of weeks ago.

Arsenal are facing a tough six days ahead of them, as they are scheduled to appear in three games within a short period of time: on Thursday, 19 September, the lads will be travelling to Germany, where they will be playing a Europa League match against Eintracht Frankfurt; on Sunday, 22 September, they have a Premier League head-to-head with Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium; finally, on Tuesday, 24 September, the Gunners will be playing against Nottingham Forest in the Carabao Cup. Arsenal’s last match of the month is due to take place on 30 September against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Arsenal are coming off the fact of a pretty, well, fascinating game against Watford, in which they were unable to hold on and secure the three points they desired (and desperately needed). They were 2-0 up at one stage and seemed to be in cruise control but in the end, they allowed their defensive issues to get the better of them in a massive, massive way.

The season finale – what now? 0

After failing to beat Brighton and Hove Albion at the Emirates on Sunday, Arsenal’s chances of finishing inside the top four and qualifying for next season’s Champions League that way are gone.

There is still a mathematical possibility which says the Gunners need to beat Burnley at Turf Moor and Tottenham Hotspur need to lose at home to Everton. Neither of these conditions is impossible, but the results need to be such that they nullify an eight-goal advantage Spurs currently have in terms of goal-difference, and that, let’s face it, is extremely unlikely to happen.

Arsenal have one foot in the UEFA Europa League final, which in itself, is a pretty exciting prospect. Arsenal fans haven’t been able to get excited about a European final since they lost to Barcelona in the Champions League final back in 2006, which we can imagine is still a sore spot for a lot of supporters. Still, we’re here to talk about the future as opposed to the past, and the future is certainly bright after the Gunners were able to beat Valencia 3-1 in the first leg of their Europa League semi final tie last night.

Eintracht Frankfurt starlet flattered by Arsenal interest 1

Highly-rated Eintracht Frankfurt midfielder Aymen Barkok continues to be linked with a move to Arsenal.

The transfer rumours refuse to disappear a month after the German media first reported of Arsenal’s approach for the 19-year-old Frankfurt starlet. Arsene Wenger is said to be keen admirer of Barkok’s talents as the French tactician is looking to add more players to his squad during the summer transfer window.

Arsenal acted quickly to secure signatures of Sead Kolasinac and Alexandre Lacazette early in the transfer market, but Arsene Wenger appears to be keen to add more quality and depth ahead of the new season.
