Freddie Ljungberg was installed as interim head coach until Arsenal make a full-time appointment.

Former Gunners midfielder Ljungberg was promoted from his coaching role after Emery was dismissed on Friday. "What I want is we stay this season together and next season together but I don't know what's the best for him".

"We started to fall short of several goals that we set. We still feel that we can achieve those goals this season, which is why we chose to make the change now".

Norwich are in the bottom three, but did pull off an incredible 3-2 win over Manchester City earlier this season and Arsenal need to make sure that they do not become another scalp for Farke's team.

Ljungberg's first match in charge will be at Norwich on Sunday, with Arsenal in ninth place, eight points off the top four. "Now it is up the players to respond and that Freddie's message gets through to them well".

Saints beat Falcons to clinch 3rd straight NFC South title
Barry is a New Orleans native who grew up as a fan of the Saints while attending games as a young boy at the old Tulane Stadium. He is, however, Atlanta's franchise quarterback, and to say he has been taking a beating would be an understatement.

"It's about being a friend, I want the best for him. That's a winning formula to me".

The Londoners are now winless in their last seven matches - their last league victory was on the 6th of October at home to Bournemouth- and Arsenal have failed to win 15 of their last 19 English top-flight road trips.

Speaking to Arsenal's website after addressing the team during training, Kroenke said: "Like all of our fans and supporters around the globe, we've been concerned about our recent string of performances".

"And ultimately we came to that decision over the last several weeks as a group between myself, Raul [Sanllehi], Vinai [Venkatesham] and Edu".
