Arsenal fans aren’t happy with Emery facing a tough January window

An opening day Premier League defeat has dampened spirits at Arsenal, with the Gunners clearly still a step or two behind Man City – who look likely to challenge for the Premier League title once again.

After a great summer, optimism was high that Unai Emery would make a good start at the Emirates, and whilst there is still more than enough time to make his first few months a success, their defeat on the opening day wasn’t great.

Unfortunately, though, Arsenal, and particularly Unai Emery, have been handed even more bad news this week.

According to the Telegraph, Arsenal are facing a ‘wage-squeeze’ in January, owing to the spending done by the Gunners over the summer. This could impact upon any spending in January, whilst it will also make it more difficult for Emery to hang on to his current crop of stars.

Whichever way you spin this, it’s bad news for the Gunners. They’ve rarely been willing to spend big, but now as they’ve finally done that, they’ve run into problems.

The extent of the squeeze remains to be seen, of course, but either way, Emery’s plans will be affected.

Naturally, Arsenal fans aren’t too happy, with many taking to Twitter to discuss the reports. They’re clearly very frustrated, with fingers being pointed at key figures like Stan Kroenke.

Take a look at what they’ve had to say below…
