Southampton: Moussa Djenpo blamed by Arsenal fans as the man keeping Emery employed

Southampton: Moussa Djenpo blamed by Arsenal fans as the man keeping Emery employed - Southampton

It’s been a miserable campaign for Southampton fans so far but Saturday’s 2-2 draw away at Arsenal did at least show signs of life in a team smashed 9-0 at home by Leicester City only last month. 

Indeed, top scorer Danny Ings recently spoke of how their performance at the Emirates Stadium was an ‘important step’ in their attempts to rise back up the Premier League and the Saints only trial safety by two points with an awful lot of football still to be played.

Still, it could have been so much more for the visitors on Saturday. As per WhoScored, they had a whopping 21 attempts compared to 12 and one of those missed chances has Gunners fans online actually blaming a Saints player for keeping the under-fire Unai Emery in a job.

Substitute Moussa Djenepo put a late shot wide after Nathan Redmond found him in the box with a cut-back from the byline and could have put his side 3-1 up late in the game prior to Alexandre Lacazette’s last-gasp equalizer.

Such is the feeling towards Emery at the moment with fans and players alike reportedly doubting him, plenty of Gunners fans online were blaming the Malian forward for his miss as a loss may have put more pressure on the Spaniard.
