Cape Town - The Arsenal players are reportedly concerned about manager Unai Emery's overly conservative approach as he struggles to find results.

A section of supporters have turned on Emery following a run of two wins from their last nine Premier League games.

Emery came in for criticism after his side allowed a lead to slip for the third time in a week as they drew 1-1 with Wolves on Saturday.

Raul Jimenez's header earned Wolves a point at the Emirates Stadium after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's 50th Arsenal goal had put Emery's side in charge.

Emery's decision to substitute defensive midfielder Lucas Torreira with winger Bukayo Saka just three minutes before Jimenez scored completely altered the mood inside the stadium.

With continued scrutiny of Emery's results and tactics, speculation over who could replace him if Arsenal wielded the axe has led to former Chelsea and Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho being linked to the post.

And now the Daily Mail claims that 'a number of players have serious reservations about Emery' with the squad worried his approach to certain matches is 'too conservative'.

The report adds that Emery's job at Arsenal is 'not under immediate threat' but it's a 'pivotal month' for the 47-year-old.

There are 'worries from within' that the club may be forced to make a 'decision' on Emery if their poor run of form continues much longer.
