Arsenal fans are less than pleased with Paul Merson after the former Gunner and Sky Sports pundit compared Unai Emery to Arsene Wenger.
The 51-year-old said that the Spaniard has his current Arsenal team playing with the same spirit as his predecessor.
Merson’s reason for comparing the two managers and their time at the Emirates Stadium was due to how open Arsenal were at the back.
Emery took over from Wenger during the summer of 2018 after the Frenchman ended his Arsenal contract early (via BBC).
Fans seemed to be furious with the comparison of the two managers, as they took to Twitter to unleash fury on the Englishman.
Here is a selection of tweets from Gooners:

Merson has the most deluded comments some pundits are such fools what they say

Has Merse got anything intelligent or positive to say about football? Or Arsenal …
