Arsenal manager Unai Emery and his Southampton counterpart Ralph Hassenhuttl are under serious pressure to keep their respective jobs ahead of their Premier League meeting at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday evening.
Unai Emery is not popular amongst the Arsenal fans who want him sacked after the Gunners’ poor start to the new Premier League season.
The Arsenal boss and his players are winless in the last five games in all competitions including the last four matches in the Premier League.
Arsenal have picked up just two points from their last four league games ahead of the Southampton game.
Anything other than three points for Arsenal against Southampton could spell the end of the Unai Emery managerial era at the club.

Unai Emery is in his second season at Arsenal following his appointment last summer as a replacement for Arsene Wenger.
Southampton manager Ralph Hassenhuttl is also under pressure with his team at the bottom of the form table in the last five seasons.
They have picked up just one point from those five games.
Probable Arsenal XI vs Southampton: Bernd Leno; Hector Bellerin, Calum Chambers, David Luiz, Kieran Tierney; Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira; Mesut Ozil, Nicholas Pepe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang; Alexandre Lacazette.
