Arsenal fell further behind in the race for the top four after a 1-1 draw with Wolves on Saturday.
- Jose Mourinho linked to Gunners job
- Unai Emery has been given a month by the Arsenal board to save his job.
Arsenal want to give Emery every chance to turn things around and have denied reports suggesting their Head of Football, Raul Sanllehi, met with Jose Mourinho.
However, Emery is under increasing pressure at the Emirates and while his job is not in immediate danger, the club have made it clear they expect the Spaniard to finish in the top four this season.
🗣️ Wenger on Arteta in 2018 before Emery was appointed: “He has all the qualities to do the job…He was a leader, has a good passion for the game & knows the club well, he knows what is important at the club…Why not?

The Gunners were heading for victory after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s first half goal, but a Raul Jimenez equaliser meant the points were shared.
Speaking after the game, head coach Unai Emery said: “I am frustrated with the result and also because we lost two very good opportunities at home against two teams that we didn’t beat last year either.
“But I think the players tried and worked and did everything we spoke about before the match but also, we lost a very good opportunity at 1-0.
“I am very demanding myself and I feel my responsibility to work every time to come back with a better result in the next matches.”
Arsenal could slip nine points behind, if they lose at Leicester next Saturday and there is a growing fear that the club could act if they are in serious danger of missing out by Christmas.
Sanllehi and technical director, Edu, have a growing influence at the club with Josh Kroenke, director and son of the majority shareholder Stan, who is also committed to giving Emery time even though it now looks to be running out.
