A selection of Arsenal supporters have taken to Twitter to call for the club to substitute Unai Emery with former midfielder Mikel Arteta following the Gunners’ dip in form as of late.

The Gunners currently sit in the sixth position in the Premier League, eight points behind fourth-placed Man City, have been going through a downturn in form as of late, with this run continuing versus Leicester on Saturday.

Unai Emery’s side slumped to a 2-0 defeat the King Power Stadiums thanks to goals from Maddison and Vardy, a result that now means the club have won just once in their last six Premier League outings.

This, in turn, has lead to supporters turning on current manager Emery, with a large part of their fanbase calling for the Spaniard to be fired.

A report from the Evening Standard this week notes that Emery has just six games to turn his fortunes at the Emirates around, and should he fail to do so, it looks like the Gunners may have no choice but to cut their ties with him.

And should this end up proving to be the case, it looks like some fans of the club have already singled out the man they want to replace Emery at the Emirates: Mikel Arteta

Arteta is currently assistant manager at Man City having never been a manager before in his career, something that could come back to bite him in the future should he be made Gunners manager.

Though these fans don’t appear to care about that, as they’ve flocked to Twitter to call for the club to take a possibility on Arteta once they decided enough is enough with Unai Emery.
