Arsenal deny Mourinho talks 0

Arsenal have denied contact with Jose Mourinho as a potential replacement for manager Unai Emery, according to Sky Sports.

Following another underwhelming result at the weekend, Emery has come under severe pressure and scrutiny. The Gunners were on course to book three points against Wolverhampton Wanderers after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (yes, him again) fired them ahead in the 21st minute, only for Raul Jimenez to make the score level with 14 minutes to go. Given that a similar thing happened in the previous round, that Arsenal are out of the Carabao Cup and that there is huge division among the fans caused by the incident involving captain Granit Xhaka, things don’t look to good for the Spanish coach.

On his contract:
We are speaking about how we can improve and take the good way, and also being calm in the dressing room with the players to achieve performances individually and collectively. These are the conversations at this time.

On Ozil’s future:
He worked, he played well and I think he has quality.

On Aubameyang being the captain going forward:
It could be. I think he can take that responsibility and today he did that. He is one captain and I think he can take that responsibility. We will analyse the match first, and our situation for the next matches and decide.

Who should be Arsenal boss next season if they don’t reach top four? 0

Unai Emery arrived to the Emirates dugout last year after 22 years of Arsene Wenger in charge. Naturally, he was (and still is) expected to deliver where the legendary Frenchman failed in his last few seasons in the job, and that is for Arsenal to play Champions League football.

However, Emery failed in his debut campaign, and while that is certainly understandable to an extent, it won’t be acceptable forever. The former Sevilla and Paris Saint-Germain boss enjoys the trust of the board at the moment, but according to various reports, the pressure is now gradually mounting with the aim of finishing inside the top four in the Premier League an absolute priority. That is to say that many believe Emery will be sacked next summer if that particular goal isn’t reached again.

Xhaka left out of Wolves clash 0

Speaking to the press ahead of the game against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Emirates on Saturday, Arsenal manager Unai Emery has revealed that captain Granit Xhaka will not be included in the matchday squad.

Xhaka’s clash with the fans in the 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace last week has been discussed far and wide and in detail, and there’s hardly any need to repeat once again what happened. Xhaka has apologized since then, and though his apology didn’t seem as wholehearted as might have been expected, the Swiss revealed in the process that he had been receiving a lot of abuse previously, threats aimed both at himself and the members of his family. That certainly throws a light on the situation different to the one of last week’s incident observed as an isolated event, and it goes a long way to explain, if perhaps still not excuse, his outburst.

The captain’s lack of good judgement 0

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has said that he plans to have a ’tête-à-tête’ with his captain Granit Xhaka after the midfielder’s inexcusable behavior during the match against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

The match, which took place at the Emirates Stadium, was going well for the Gunners, with Sokratis Papastathopoulos scoring the team’s first goal in the seventh minute of the game and David Luiz scoring another one two minutes later. However, later on Luka Milivojevic scored one for the Palace in the 32nd and Jordan Ayew in the 52nd minute of the match, which eventually ended in a draw, leaving Arsenal in the fifth place, four points behind the Champions League spot.

Xhaka defends Pepe 0

Arsenal captain Granit Xhaka has called on supporters to remain patient with the club’s record signing, Nicolas Pepe.

Pepe arrived this summer for £72 million as a marquee signing, but his form in the Arsenal shirt still hasn’t hit anywhere near the level which was seen at Lille, and which convinced the club to part with that kind of money to beat off competition and acquire his services. He has made 11 appearances so far, nine in the Premier League and two in the Europa League, and managed to score only once – and even that came from the penalty spot.
