Unai Emery seems little bit plucky about his job as the Spanish manager insists Arsenal showed signs of improvement last night despite losing to Frankfurt.
Arsenal welcomed Bundesliga side, Eintracht Frankfurt for their Europa League game last night with hopes of sealing their move to the next round but the opposite ruled as Unai Emery and his men suffered another loss.
Pierre Aubameyang as usual put his side in front but Gunners’ unstable defense line had them gift away two goals in the space of 9 minutes during the second 45 minutes of the game.
Daichi Kamada stole the show as the match winner after converting Danny da Costa’s assist and in the next 9 minutes single handedly found the back of Emiliano Martinez’s net.

“I think we improved,” Emery claimed, despite the mounting pressures and the angry banners flying all over the Emirates Stadium reading; ‘Emery out’, ‘No where to hide’, ‘no tactics’, no formation’ and the rest of them.

“In the first half we had control of the game and we were winning 1-0 but we created chances to score a second goal,” the manager continued.
“The first five or 10 minutes or so of the second half was positive, how we were playing.
“We lost control in 15 minutes of the second half and they scored two goals and then we couldn’t change the result.
“The last 20 minutes we tried to come back but we didn’t create in that moment a big opportunity to score,” the 48-year-old added.
Arsenal look to focus on their premier league clash on Sunday when they visit Carrow Road on Sunday to face Daniel Farke’s men.
“I am being positive but above all realistic,” he added. “I am thinking about the next match and how we can improve.
“If we play like in the first half, that is the way.
