Arsenal fans take to Twitter to slam Unai Emery following Brighton draw

Arsenal could have done the unthinkable yesterday and come within just four points of Manchester City with a win. However, it wasn’t to be as the Gunners fell to a 1-1 draw at Brighton and now find themselves two points off of the top four. After the game, though, it wasn’t any of the players, but Unai Emery who was receiving the stick.

There were a few key moments in the game that really frustrated the supporters. The first was obviously the Brighton goal, which could easily have been prevented as it came from such a basic long ball from Brighton ‘keeper Matty Ryan. However, from there the frustration from the fans was caused by Unai Emery’s in-game changes.

At half-time, Emery opted to bring off Mesut Ozil, and that went down like a lead balloon with the Gunners. Their German playmaker has been left out more than they’d like recently, with Emery claiming that the decision to exile the World Cup winner is purely tactical. The substitution didn’t go down well, though, and then when he also subbed of Alexandre Lacazette things just got worse, especially seeing as the game petered out into a 1-1 draw.
