Arsenal will not be panicked into sacking Unai Emery despite calls from supporters for the beleaguered Spaniard to be axed.
The Gunners boss is fighting for his job following a dismal start to the season that has seen them win just two of their previous 10 Premier League games.
Sportsmail reported last Monday that Emery’s position is not under immediate threat – and that stance has not changed despite Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Leicester City.

For now, the under fire manager has the backing of Arsenal’s hierarchy – whose original plan was to review Emery’s position in the summer.
But, privately, there is an acknowledgment the club may have to alter their stance if their season continues to plummet.
The news will infuriate a growing section of fans who want Emery to be sacked immediately.

The Gunners rebuilt their squad over the summer with a number of new additions and there is a realisation that the squad needs time to gel.
Even if Emery sees out the season, Champions League qualification will be a key factor in whether he remains in charge.
A number of players have serious reservations about Emery, who many believe is too conservative in his approach to games while concerns about his ability to communicate clearly with his stars persist.
