Granit Xhaka stripped of the Arsenal captaincy following Emirates outburst

Jose Mourinho

‘Unai Emery is done at Arsenal’ according to highly-regarded journalist John Cross

Former Arsenal star Paul Merson has urged the Gunners' chiefs to fire current manager Unai Emery and hire Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers in the Spaniard's place.

John said: "I think we've reached a point where Unai Emery is done".

Mourinho has been out of work for nearly a year since being sacked by Manchester United just before last Christmas.

Otherwise, Arsenal have no other injury concerns to worry about so Emery has a healthy squad to choose from ahead of a crucial game with Leicester that could determine our chances of finishing in the top four.
