Arsenal were pegged back for the second Premier League game in succession as Wolves came from behind to snatch a draw at the Emirates.

·        

Since

Emery

took charge of

the Gunners

, they have dropped 19 points from winning positions.

·        

Only Aston Villa (11), West Ham (9), Spurs (8), and Man Utd (8) outrank them (6) this season in that respect.

·        

Only Aston Villa and Norwich City have faced more shots than

Arsenal

(176) in the Premier League this season so far.

·        

Emery’s Arsenal

contract contains a break clause that could see him replaced this summer.

·        

88% of fans who took part in a Twitter poll exceeding 50,000 voters think

Arsenal

should sack him immediately.

·        

Arsenal

’s head of football recently had dinner with possible replacement Jose Mourinho, according to reports.

Arsenal

will reportedly not sack

Unai Emery

this season although they will probably use the break clause in the Spaniard’s contract.

Emery

is under increasing pressure at the Emirates following an underwhelming start to this season.

The Gunners

have won just four of their first 11 games in the Premier League and were held to a draw at home by

Wolves

on Saturday despite taking the lead.

Former Manchester United and Real Madrid boss, Jose Mourinho, has been linked with the job at the Emirates should Emery be replaced.

However, it was reported that there will be no movement on Emery until the end of the season.

It is likely that they will not take the option to extend

Emery

’s contract as a result of a break clause in his deal at the end of the season.

Arsenal

dropped points on Saturday after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put the hosts in front.

Emery

was left frustrated with the performance that saw his team drop further off the top of the

Premier League

table.

“I’m disappointed with the result above all because I think the players tried, the players worked, and the most difficult thing against Wolves is to score the first goal and take advantage in the result,” he stated.

“We needed to score the second goal to take more confidence than we had at 1-0 and also because they are a strong team defensively, but also they have the structure offensively.

“They have the habit of playing matches with that result and being consistent to try to score and draw.

“They did that and we lost the opportunity at 1-0. When they equalized, we tried. We got into the box, we created some chances which weren't very clear but we created them.

“Also, in the last moments when we were pushing a lot, they had good transitions, one or two transitions when they didn't score.

“I think it was an equal match and maybe we deserved it a little more than them, but we struggled.

“In a game against them, when you have that opportunity after 1-0 to get more of an advantage, you need to take it. We didn’t.”
