Unai Emery could be frustrated out of Arsenal by players after less than two years in charge of the north London club.
The Gunners were forced to a 2-2 draw at the Emirates by Southampton and sources claim the players have lost faith in the Spanish manager.
According to Telegraph, players have now joined fans who have been calling for the sack of Emery and do not believe that he is the man to save their season.

Arsenal are yet to record a win in their last six matches in all competitions and players are said to be confused by Emery's selections, tactics and instructions.
“The problem is the coach. He still makes bad decisions and changes his tactics.
“There is no identity to the team and the players do not see any progress.
“The recent performances and results have had a big impact on the belief of the squad.
“Does anybody still think they can qualify for the Champions League under the coach? I don’t think so,” a source told Telegraph Sport.
On the other hand, Jose Mourinho's appointment as manager of Tottenham have also sparked off reactions at the Emirates.
A source said: “Mourinho taking over at Tottenham has only made it worse.
“He may not be to everyone’s liking, but he is a winner and Spurs have made it clear they want to win.
“Unai Emery is not seen as a coach on the same level as Guardiola, Klopp or even Mourinho.
“Frank Lampard has already built an identity at Chelsea and Brendan Rodgers is doing very well at Leicester.
“All of this puts more pressure on him.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Arsenal chiefs have reportedly assured embattled Unai Emery of their support despite the club's poor run of results in recent weeks.
The Gunners extended their winless streak in the Premier League to over a month following their 2-0 defeat to Leicester on Saturday evening, November 9.
