Unai Emery’s job at Arsenal could be at risk if the Gunners fail to qualify for the Champions League this season, according to reports in the British media.

The Times is reporting that the Spaniard is under pressure to guide the north London side to a top-four finish in the Premier League after they finished fifth and without a trophy last term.

Emery has just begun his second season in charge at the north London club after having spent big on a number of new signings including Nicolas Pepe and Kieran Tierney in the summer transfer window.

The Gunners currently find themselves in third place in the Premier League table as they look to break back into the top four and qualify for next season’s Champions League.

The same articles carries quotes from Raul Sanllehi, the head of football at Arsenal, who reveals that the north Londoners “expect” Emery to deliver Champions League football for next season.

Emery was brought in as Arsene Wenger’s successor at The Emirates in the summer of 2018 and he has been tasked with steering the Gunners back into Europe’s elite club competition.

The north London side will return to Premier League action after the international break when they take on Sheffield United away from home on Monday 21 October.
