Arsenal have sacked Unai Emery following the Gunners’ 2-1 home defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday night.
The result means Arsenal have failed to win for the SEVENTH game in a row — their worst run of results since 1992.

Their Europa League defeat to Frankfurt was a thoroughly toothless display.
The Gunners took the lead via Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goal before half-time and looked set to book their spot in the knockout stages of the competition.
But a double from Daichi Kamada left them chasing shadows and they failed to mount a fightback.
Loud boos rung out around the Emirates stadium at full-time; the fans had clearly lost their patience with the Spaniard. A bad ebening indeed.

Emery came to North London with a good reputation, having replaced Arsene Wenger in the summer of 2018.
He’d previously managed the likes of Valencia and Paris Saint-Germain, but is most renowned for winning three back-to-back Europa League titles with Sevilla.
Freddie Ljungberg will now take caretaker charge of the Gunners, starting with Sunday’s game against Norwich.
Who will be Arsenal’s next permanent manager?
Our friends over at Betway have already priced up the odds for the next Gunners’ boss.
With Ole Gunnar Solksjaer already at Man United and Frank Lampard taking over at Chelsea during the summer, why not back a third Premier League legend in the dugout permanently in the shape of Ljungberg — who’s the favourite at 11/4.
Former Milan and Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri is next at 3/1, while his fellow Italian Carlo Ancelotti is at 6/1.
Wolves’ Nuno Espirito Santo is also in the mix at 7/2, along with Rafael Benitez (12/1), Eddie Howe (16/1) and former club skipper Patrick Vieira (16/1).
