Unai Emery has had a superb start to life at Arsenal.

The Spanish manager has led Arsenal to 5th in the Premier League table, with 22 points accrued from his opening 10 games.

His side are now 13 games unbeaten following their win against Blackpool on Wednesday night, winning 12 of those games.

But it seems not every Arsenal fan is happy under the former PSG manager.

A fan of the north London club rang up BBC radio 5 live after their draw to Crystal Palace on the weekend to express his opposition to manager.

He argued that Emery was the wrong appointment to succeed Arsene Wenger and maintained Sean Dyche or Eddie Howe should have been given the job instead.

"I'm not noticing anything different from when we had Arsene Wenger," he begins.

"I still think that back four is a bit shaky. I don't think we replaced Mertesacker in the summer.

"I'm not going to say Mertesacker is the best defender in the world, but I am saying he had his similarities with Tony Adams.

Not all Arsenal fans have been impressed with Unai Emery this season

"He was a leader in the back four. If you were in a bit of trouble, he could get you out of that trouble.

"He's not the manager I wanted. I wanted Eddie Howe or Sean Dyche."

When asked whether he thought Emery was the right man, the fan replied: "I'm not getting carried away. I'm not Emery in but I'm not Emery out." 

The fan then finished off by having a go at Emery for not sorting out the back four.

Listen to his rant below:

Ian Wright saw the fans' comments and it's fair to say he wasn't best pleased.

The Arsenal legend decided to respond to the fan and, in typical Wright fashion, he absolutely destroyed him.

Wright wrote: "Looking at this again. Where’s that 'shut up you c............' gif 🤔"

Brutal stuff. That is why he's so popular with Arsenal fans, though.

Many commented their approval of Wright putting the fan in his place.

Even a Tottenham fan applauded Wright for 'saying it how it is'.

Emery will be looking to prove his doubters wrong when Arsenal take on Liverpool this weekend.
