Arsenal v Eintracht Frankfurt preview – Great opportunity for Arsenal to grab a long-awaited win.
The Gunners will be looking to get back to winning ways and give their fans something to cheer about. Nothing short of a win will do for the frustrated fans.
Arsenal comes into this game with no wins in their last six games in all competitions. The pressure is on Unai Emery and this could easily be his last game as Arsenal manager.
The Spaniard is near the end of his tenure at the Emirates. But this game and the others coming before the new year could play a major role in deciding his immediate future.
They have been in fine form in the Europa League this season and they can qualify with a point in this game.
Three of Arsenal’s four games in this competition this season has seen 3.5 goals and so a frantic game is expected. Eintracht Frankfurt who recently beat Bayern Munich will play their part and hope for a surprise win.
Granit Xhaka hasn’t played since the game against Crystal Palace, his absence has coincided with Arsenal not winning a game. Could he return to the team tonight? Could he be the game-changer that Arsenal has been looking for?
Unai Emery is also set to start Gabriel Martinelli and Nicolas Pepe. The last time Pepe played at home in this competition, he scored two stunning free-kicks. he might just repeat the trick here again.
With Arsenal struggling for confidence but scoring just about enough goals in this competition, I believe they will earn another win here.
I am backing Arsenal to win 3-2 but it will not be enough to save Emery his job.
