Emery hands Ar­se­nal flops two days off

Scottish Daily Mail - - Europa League -

UNAI EMERY gave Ar­se­nal play­ers two days off to ‘men­tally re­cover’ from the run that has left his po­si­tion hang­ing by a thread. Alexan­dre La­cazette’s stop­page-time equaliser on Satur­day spared the Gun­ners from an em­bar­rass­ing home de­feat to rel­e­ga­tion­threat­ened Southamp­ton — but the poor re­sult piled even more pres­sure on the be­lea­guered boss. And Emery’s re­sponse to the re­sult was to al­low play­ers two days off, de­spite the fact they face Ein­tra­cht Frank­furt in the Europa League tonight and haven’t won a game in over a month. Emery tried his best to re­main pos­i­tive yes­ter­day — in­sist­ing ev­ery mem­ber of the Ar­se­nal hi­er­ar­chy is still back­ing him. ‘Re­ally the club is sup­port­ing me,’ he said. ‘I feel the club, ev­ery­one re­spon­si­ble in that area, is back­ing me. Re­ally, I ap­pre­ci­ate it a lot.’
