Leicester beat Arsenal 2-0 to heap even more pressure on Unai Emery

FBL-ENG-PR-LEICESTER-ARSENAL

Unai Emery is in big trouble at Arsenal.

The Gunners went to the King Power on Saturday evening and lost 2-0 to Leicester meaning they have now won just one of their previous seven matches in all competitions - a late 3-2 win over Vitoria in the Europa League.

The result leaves Arsenal nine points adrift of Leicester as Brendan Rodgers’ side move up to second in the table.

There will no doubt be plenty of Gooners now calling for Emery's head as their dismal run continues.

The Spaniard opted for three at the back with Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolasinac - who was preferred to Kieran Tierney - as wing-backs.

That allowed a centre-midfield duo of Lucas Torreira and Mateo Guendouzi, with Mesut Ozil playing in behind Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

The line-up was a compliment to Leciester and the way they've been playing this season.

And while Arsenal did well to nullify the Foxes' threat in the first-half, their pressure told after the break.

Vardy opened the scoring in the 68th-minute, applying the finish after Youri Tielemans' great work.

Vardy then turned provider as he rolled the ball to James Maddison, who drilled the ball home to seal the victory.

After the goal, the home fans started chanting 'you're getting sacked in the morning' to Emery.

Many Arsenal fans will be hoping they're right.

It could be a long international break for Emery.
