Unai Emery has called for patience from Arsenal fans following the 2-0 defeat to Leicester City on Saturday.
Second-half goals from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison sealed the victory for Brendan Rodgers’ side, leaving the Gunners eight points behind fourth place and with just one win in their last six Premier League games.
The fixture was also Emery’s 50th in the Premier League but the Spaniard has registered a worse points tally than Arsene Wenger’s final 50 games in charge of the Gunners.
Under Emery, Arsenal have recorded 97 points in the Premier League but Wenger managed one point more in his last 50 matches.
When asked about having a worse record than Wenger, Emery told Sky Sports: ‘We need time, and we need patience.
‘We changed a lot of players, we have young players
‘We know we have very demanding and ambitious target, we know we need time and patience.
‘We are going to achieve with young players and experience players.
‘We’ve had circumstances that didn’t help us achieve the best results.
‘With patience we are going to do the best we are going to do.’
