Welcome to the Evening Standard’s LIVE Arsenal coverage as Unai Emery clings to his job after the Gunners’ feeble surrender to Eintracht Frankfurt​ on Thursday night. 

The 2-1 loss extended the their winless run to seven and heaped even more pressure on under-fire Emery, with plenty of those who bothered to turn up calling for the manager’s head at Emirates Stadium. 

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s first-half strike had Arsenal on course for a much-needed win in front of a sparse crowd in north London.

But Frankfurt rallied and left north London with a win courtesy of Daichi Kamada’s nine-minute brace.

What Unai Emery said

“I think we deserved more,” he said after Thursday’s 2-1 loss to Eintracht Frankfurt. “We controlled the game in the first half, we scored one goal.

“In the second half we started the same, we needed to score a goal but we lost the control of the game after 15 minutes and they scored two goals.

“I think we improved in the first half and we improved also some things to make sure of our improvement and take the three points.”
