Arsenal fans have again called for the sack of coach Unai Emery following the team’s 2-2 home draw with Crystal Palace in a Premier League tie, Sunday, Concise News reports.

The Gunners were 2-0 up courtesy of strikes from Sokratis in the 7th minute and David Luiz just a minute later.

But Palace were awarded a penalty in the 32nd minute after the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) overruled a booking on Wilfried Zaha for diving in the box.

Luka Milivojevic cooly slotted home the spot-kick to make it 2-1 before a Jordan Ayew goal in the 52nd minute pegged Arsenal back.

The Gunner rallied to find the winner and seemed to have made headway when Sokratis lashed home a loose ball in the 85th minute.

However, VAR ruled off the goal for a foul by Callum Chambers on a Palace player.

Following the defeat, some Arsenal fans took to Twitter to call for the resignation of Emery who they said is unfit to lead the Emirates side.

Concise News curated some of their tweets which went with the hashtag #EmeryOut after the game as seen below:

Emery Counts Loss

Meanwhile, Emery has said the team’s inability to take possession for the 2-2 draw at home to Crystal Palace.

“We can speak about our performance and the VAR decision,” he said.

“We started very well and then conceded many chances so we should have controlled possession better to get more chances at 2-0 but usually, the opposite team want to push more and then they scored.

“We need to respect the decision, which was amazing, Last match here against Bournemouth, they didn’t check for a clear penalty on Pepe and at Sheffield on Sokratis.”
