Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho would be the “perfect” replacement for under-fire Arsenal boss Unai Emery.

That is the verdict of controversial TalkSport host Adrian Durham, who believes “time is running out” for the Spaniard after a stuttering start to the new campaign.

The Gunners squandered a two-goal half-time lead on Sunday as defensive errors again cost Emery’s side and were lucky to leave Hertfordshire with a 2-2 draw as Watford had 31 shots on goal during the game.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s brace looked to have the visitors cruising only for Sokratis Papastathopoulos to gift possession to Watford inside his own box and allow Tom Cleverley to strike.

David Luiz then tripped substitute Roberto Pereyra to concede a penalty, which the Argentina international coolly tucked away as Watford collected just their second point of the season.

And that performance has led Durham to question whether Emery is the right man to lead a new era in north London.

“Time is running out for Unai Emery,” said Durham on TalkSport . “He’s coming up to the end of the two years and there is no difference to the darkest days under Arsene Wenger.

“They conceded more chances to Watford than they did in the 8-2 at Man United.

“So these are just as bad these times for Arsenal and they are nowhere nearer challenging for the title than they were in those latter years under Wenger.

“It’s a fanbase and a club that is living a delusion that their players are really good.

“The midfield and the defending is not good enough and I’m not even sure about the goalkeeper. It looks like they’re not being coached correctly or told the right things.

“Something drastic needs to be done.”

Mourinho has been without a job since being sacked by Man Utd last December

And Durham reckons Champions League-winning manager Mourinho, who has managed in the top flight with Chelsea and Manchester United , is the perfect man for the job.

He added: “You know who they need? Jose Mourinho. He would be perfect for Arsenal, and he’s a free agent!

“Their fans would hate me saying it, but can you see it getting better under Unai Wenger? I cant.

“They need somebody who will go in there and shake the club up – Mourinho is exactly what they need! He would 100 per cent take that job, this is the job he’s been looking for.

“This is what Arsenal need – Jose Mourinho in charge.”
