Arsenal fans have hit back at Alexandre Lacazette’s comments, after he opted to defend Unai Emery yesterday.

Lacazette suggested to France 24 that Emery should not be getting so much criticism at Arsenal right now, as he wasn’t praised enough last term.

"Last season when we were unbeaten in 20 games in a row nobody said anything about the coach,” the striker said.

 

But Lacazette may be regretting the comments now, as they have not gone down well with Arsenal supporters.

Many feel that the Frenchman has stepped out of line, and have defender their critical stance on Emery’s management.

Arsenal have badly disappointed this season, and there are real questions forming over whether Emery has taken them forward since taking over from Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table, and they are already a long way behind the pace set by the top four.

Arsenal were beaten 2-0 by Leicester City in their most recent match, with their away form continuing to plague them.

It has been suggested that Emery’s job is still not under immediate pressure, but unless a dramatic improvement occurs then the Spanish boss will only come under more criticism from a fan base which is becoming increasingly frustrated.
