Next Permanent Arsenal Manager
Arsenal have failed to win any of their previous seven games in all competitions, prompting Emery's sacking.
The Gunners sit eighth in the table after an underwhelming start to the campaign, with just 18 points mustered from 13 matches and the London side have failed to win on the road since an opening day victory at Newcastle United.
Their win rate at the Emirates has also been low under Emery this season and Arsenal were fortunate to recently claim a 2-2 draw against Southampton after being outplayed at home to a team who look set to be battling against relegation.
The search is now taking place for a new Arsenal Head Coach and there is plenty of speculation surrounding the potential candidates who can replace Emery.
With hindsight, the club’s board will feel that appointing the Spaniard wasn’t a good move considering he’s lasted little more than a season and will now look to appoint a successor who can improve matters on the field and hold the position for a much longer period of time.

Straight after it was announced that Unai Emery had been sacked as Arsenal FC manager, the club also stated that Fredrik Ljungberg would become the interim Head Coach, with the Swede having been promoted to the dug-out this season and he’s sure to try and stake a claim for the top position now that he’s been given the opportunity.
Ljungberg is a Gunners legend and was part of the famous “Invincibles” team, with the 42-year-old having joined the Arsenal FC coaching staff in 2015. After a brief stint with VFL Wolfsburg, Freddie then returned to the north London club to head up the academy and his sterling work means he’s now in the box seat albeit on a temporary basis.
The odds are currently going crazy although Ljungberg can be backed at 5/1 with Paddy Power to replace Emery on a permanent basis and one only has to reflect on Manchester United’s decision to promote Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as an example of why Arsenal might decide to stick with the Swede who apparently commands the respect of the players at the club. Sunday's defeat to Norwich however will not have helped his cause.
Indeed, with Frank Lampard at Chelsea, there seems to be a penchant for leading clubs to recruit a former playing legend who brings progressive new ideas, while Ljungberg would also bring continuity after making 216 appearances in an Arsenal shirt and learning plenty under legendary boss Arsene Wenger.

Can Gunners Pinch Nuno from Wolves?
The rumours refuse to go away when it comes to Nuno Espirito Santo and there are some bookies who have been odds-on that the current manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers leaves Molineux and takes charge at Arsenal. It would certainly be a shock for Wolves supporters who have seen the Portuguese completely transform the fortunes at the Midlands club.
It’s easy to see why the Gunners would be interested in the 45-year-old considering his fantastic achievements in the Black Country and perhaps Nuno, now a 15/2 with Betfair chance for the job, will regard this as a good time to further his ambition with a club that has the potential to challenge for the Premier League title and also qualify for the Champions League.
Wolves might be very reluctant to allow their manager to speak with Arsenal and owners Fosun International might even be prepared to award their chief employee a shiny new contract to ensure that he remains in charge, given that Wanderers were a mid-table Championship club when Espirito Santo took charge.
The Midlands club are currently fifth in the Premier League and the Arsenal board might consider that if Nuno is able to achieve such fantastic results with a club like Wolves, then the sky could be the limit if he arrived and took charge of a squad packed with a higher calibre of player, along with the fact that he might bring some Wanderers stars with him.

Could Arteta Land Gunners Role This Time?
When Arsene Wenger was squeezed out of the door at Arsenal FC at the end of the 2017/18 season, there was a frantic betting heat when it came to the Frenchman’s successor and it was Mikel Arteta who was favourite for several days as it appeared likely that the Spaniard would leave Manchester City to take charge of the Gunners.
However, Arteta was apparently pipped at the post by Unai Emery in the final reckoning, with the 37-year-old now back in the reckoning now that the latter has been sent packing and he can be backed at 5/2 with BetVictor.
Indeed, Arteta was turning out for the Gunners as recently as 2016, with the former midfielder then making the switch to Manchester City where he began his coaching career and the ex-Everton player has proved to be instrumental in helping the Sky Blues win an enormous amount of silverware including two recent consecutive Premier League titles.
Perhaps the Citizens assistant manager might turn down the chance to apply for the vacant position on this occasion and some recent comments from Guardiola were interesting considering that he regarded Arteta as his natural successor at the Etihad Stadium, although the former’s departure date could be quite a way into the future.

Could Poch Make an Audacious Switch to Arsenal?
It’s an unbelievable thought although the bookmakers regard Mauricio Pochettino as one of the favourites to replace Unai Emery at Arsenal FC! It would be an appointment that sends shockwaves around North London, with the Argentine having recently been deposed at Tottenham Hotspur and it’s almost unimaginable to contemplate the 47-year-old representing the Gunners.
However, loyalty tends not to exist too strongly in elite football and the former Southampton manager has been based in England since 2013 when he took charge at St Mary’s before making the switch to White Hart Lane. Spurs were a fairly modest Premier League outfit when Pochettino took charge although he left them as a club who nearly won last season’s Champions League.
Pochettino is not going to be short of offers when it comes to high-profile football management positions and perhaps Arsenal might sound out someone who will want to further his own ambitions. It would truly be a remarkable story and Poch would know that he’d instantly become a hate figure as far as the white half of North London is concerned.
Nevertheless, odds of 15/2 with Paddy Power illustrate that he can’t be ruled out at this stage and one could argue that the Gunners’ squad is on the same level as their arch-rivals, with the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe forming a front three which could be the best in Europe.
Allegri Continues to be Linked with Gunners
At the age of 52, Allegri is far from finished as far as football management is concerned and his representatives might receive communication from Arsenal FC about the vacant managerial spot, although it remains to be seen whether the former Milan coach has an appetite to replace Emery considering the squad might need something of a revamp.
It should also be noted that Allegri has never managed outside of Italy and perhaps the former midfielder is waiting for a vacancy to arise at a club like Barcelona where current incumbent Ernesto Valverde has often looked fragile at the Nou Camp.
Landing Allegri would be seen as a massive coup in the eyes of many Arsenal supporters, and as the current 5/2 favourite with Betfair it looks as though it could well happen.

Could Eddie Howe Step into Arsenal Breach?
Eddie Howe was linked with the vacant Arsenal manager’s position when it first became vacant in the summer of 2018 and the Englishman is once again on the betting shortlist now that Unai Emery has been sacked following a poor run of recent results.
The Bournemouth manager has known very little aside from his role at the Vitality Stadium, with Howe having had a brief stint with Burnley before returning to the Dorset club and it’s perfectly possible that he has little desire to leave his current post and take a chance with a club who are no longer Champions League material.
However, at the same time, the 41-year-old might be wondering whether he’s taken the Cherries as far as they can go. Realistically, with the modest finances that exist at the club, Bournemouth aren’t going to be any more than a mid-table club in the English Premier League, while Arsenal have the potential to achieve great things under the right manager.
One only has to reflect on the way that Frank Lampard has recharged Chelsea in the wake of Maurizio Sarri and Eden Hazard leaving to see that there’s a potentially golden opportunity for Howe to step into the breach in an attempt to transform the club’s fortunes.
Benitez Monitoring Events from China
Rafael Benitez is currently trading at 16/1 to become the next Arsenal FC Head Coach and perhaps the highly-experienced Spaniard could provide a safe pair of hands, having done something similar at Chelsea a few years ago. The former Liverpool manager won the Champions League against the odds with the Reds and his family continue to be based in England.
Benitez is currently in charge of Chinese Super League team Dalian Yifeng and is usually a man who honours his contracts, although Arsenal will be aware that West Ham were able to snare Manuel Pellegrini away from a similar situation and it’s clear that the former Valencia manager would sit up and take notice if the Gunners made the call.
Perhaps the Arsenal board might regard Benitez as a suitable stop-gap appointment to manage the team in the short-term and attempt to get them back on track. There could even be the potential for someone like Fredrik Ljungberg to work under him with a view to the latter taking charge on a permanent basis further down the line.
