Arsenal have won fewer points in Emery's first 50 PL matches than Wenger's last 50 PL matches

Unai Emery has now been in charge of Arsenal for 50 Premier League games.

Emery reached the milestone as he took his side to take on Leicester at the King Power Stadium.

But it played out like many of the previous 49 Premier League matches.

Arsenal battled well in the first-half against Brendan Rodgers’ side but two goals in the space of seven second-half minutes from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison earned Leicester the three points.

It leaves the Gunners nine points behind the Foxes in the league table.

Arsenal’s record under Emery in the Premier League reads 25 wins, 12 draws and 13 losses – earning 87 points.

Incidentally, that is one point fewer than Arsene Wenger achieved during his final 50 Premier League at the Emirates.

Wenger picked up 27 wins, seven draws and 16 defeats during his last 50 games in the league.

Definitive proof that Arsenal are no better under Emery than they were under Wenger.

And that worrying statistic might be enough to convince the Arsenal hierarchy to pull the trigger during the international break.

Recent reports have suggested that Emery isn’t close to being sacked anytime soon but the Gunners have recorded just one win in their previous seven games in all competitions.

The Leicester fans were singing ‘sacked in the morning’ towards the end of the match. And Emery must be fearing that dreaded phone call from Raul Sanllehi in the coming days.
