Vitoria Guimaraes vs Arsenal Match Preview
Arsenal manager Unai Emery’s job is reported to be on the line – and yet he could take his team through to the Europa League knockout stage as early as this Wednesday.
Emery is under fire with the Gunners having won only one of their last five matches, ironically the reverse fixture to this one in which they needed two brilliant free-kicks from Nicolas Pepe in the last 10 minutes to overturn a deficit to Vitoria Guimaraes and prevail 3-2.
The Spaniard has had plenty to cope with this season, especially regarding Granit Xhaka, Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac and the issues that have affected them psychologically.
