3. November 28, 2019, Arsenal loses at home to Frankfurt in the Europa League
After the draw against Crystal Palace, the Gunners took a nosedive. They went winless in their next three league matches, were eliminated from the Carabao Cup, and were held to a draw in their Europa League group stage match by Portuguese club Vitoria.
The downturn in league play dropped Arsenal into eighth position and eight points behind Chelsea for the last Champions League qualification slot.
Coming into their Europa League match against Eintracht Frankfurt at the Emirates, the Gunners’ dressing room had turned into a rolling dumpster fire. Their fans started to ask if Arsene Wenger could come back. Unai Emery’s position had begun to become fragile.
The stale and continuous aura around the stadium against the Bundesliga club did not help.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored first for Arsenal in the first-half stoppage time of a dull affair.
Frankfurt came back in the second half with goals in the 55th and 64th minutes en route to a 2-1 victory.
The Gunners had lost another game that they had led in the early stages, but worse than that, they looked like they had no motivation to play the match.
It was the end of the line for Unai Emery.
