Gary Neville thinks Unai Emery can turn things around at Arsenal if supporters are patient with him despite their poor form.
The Gunners are currently sixth in the Premier League table, level 0n points with fifth-placed Sheffield United but crucially eight points behind Chelsea, who occupy the final Champions League spot.
“For Arsenal, the fans are getting very impatient at this moment of time,” Neville said on the Gary Neville Podcast. “I don’t think anybody was surprised that Leicester won that game. It doesn’t shock you, does it? It doesn’t surprise you with Arsenal.
“They are what they are. They’re a frustration. Emery is being put under big pressure. I know that Emery is a great coach and following on from Arsene Wenger was never going to be easy.
“Great coaches will come into Arsenal and struggle to change things there. We’ve seen that at Manchester United when Sir Alex Ferguson left. Ferguson and Wenger were the leaders at those clubs. It’s going to take time and there needs to be patience shown at Arsenal.
“Manchester United and Arsenal are both big clubs, huge clubs, and they will get back, the cycle will turn.”
