Arsenal chairman Sir Chips Keswick ponders resignation after Southampton draw

The draw extended the side's winless run to six games, while they have only managed to secure two victories in their last 11 Premier League outings.

Arsenal's defeat at Leicester before the worldwide break extended the club's winless run in the Premier League to four games, with the club having slipped eight points adrift of the division's top four and facing the real possibility of missing out on Champions League football for a fourth consecutive season.

Arsenal have underwhelmed this season with Emery's job in doubt. I want him to come back, with him helping us and also convincing every supporter of his commitment to us and his performances are going to be better and we are going to be proud of him in an Arsenal shirt.

Emery added: "Yes, I was surprised by Pochettino's sacking. I showed him some movies about his best performances with us and how he can improve". We are speaking about how we can find a solution. I think they will be motivated but we need to impose and show our gameplan. It's the same with the players, we've spoken with them about how we can improve.

Alexandre Lacazette earned Arsenal a last-gasp 2-2 draw at home to second bottom Southampton on Saturday. In his post-match press conference he spoke of "finding solutions" in terms of the balance between attack and defence, but surely a manager with 18 months of experience in the hotseat shouldn't be pulling that excuse out of the bag?

In midfield, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi should be the pivot pairing, especially after Granit Xhaka's episode with the fans.

Quite how he still doesn't know his best eleven is staggering.

Although the switch injected some life into Arsenal, they were lucky to escape with a point with Ward-Prowse admitting Saints' were kicking themselves at not holding on for the win. And Pires, who spent six years at Arsenal between 2000 and 2006, believes the club can benefit from having English players in the squad.
