Unai Emery believes he has the full backing of Arsenal’s board as he struggles to arrest the slump that is threatening to derail their season.

Emery has come under severe pressure following criticism of his team selection, tactics and wider strategy this campaign as Arsenal have produced their worst start to a top-flight season since 1982.

The 2-0 defeat at Leicester City on Saturday left Arsenal eight points adrift of the Champions League places and with only two league wins since Aug 17, leading to fans at the King Power Stadium chanting: “You’re getting sacked in the morning.” Arsenal hierarchy members who watched the latest loss did so grim-faced but it is understood the club have no desire to make a change so soon into the season.

Telegraph Sport understands that the Spaniard has had no ultimatums issued to him by the board and believes his job is secure for the time being.

Emery has cited wider “circumstances” such as Granit Xhaka’s public fallout with supporters and the attempted robbery of Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac as factors that have disrupted the side.

Emery will be expected to deliver improved performances in matches against struggling Southampton and Norwich after the international break, and it is believed that aspects of Arsenal’s performance at Leicester – where Emery ripped up his back-four formation and fielded a back three for the first time in the league this season – were deemed encouraging.
