EPL news: Arsenal; Unai Emery sacking, analysis, review, Gary Neville, Granit Xhaka, David Luiz, Mustafi, Sokratis

Arsenal’s “truly pathetic” recruitment policy left sacked Unai Emery with a number of “uncoachable” players, says Sky Sports’ Gary Neville.

Absent fans always spells trouble

It’s always sad when a coach loses his job, and irrespective of the result it’s always a massive problem when the fans don’t turn up, for a manager. I remember a few years ago, I went to a Manchester United game on a Tuesday night, and there must have been about 55,000 inside Old Trafford.

I thought at that moment, that was probably the time Louis van Gaal lost his job because if fans don’t turn up, the board will act on that. The performances and results haven’t been great, it’s always a reflection on the board and sporting directors, the succession planning for Arsene Wenger hasn’t succeeded. We’ve seen it at other clubs and in some ways it’s unsurprising, it was always difficult for someone to come in after such a long time.

Newcastle had just one shot on target in their 1-1 draw with Spurs – the extremely controversial last-minute penalty scored by Callum Wilson after a ball clipped Eric Dier’s arm.

The 95th-minute VAR intervention saw Spurs boss Jose Mourinho storm down the tunnel furiously, keeper Hugo Lloris scream ‘f**k off’ after seeing the ball fly into his net, while his goalkeeping coach Nuno Santos was sent off for protesting at the referee following the final whistle.

The call sparked outrage, and even Newcastle manager Steve Bruce said the new handball rule is ruining football, despite the result.
