Former English midfielder Ray Parlour feels that the time has come for Arsenal to revamp its squad.
The Gunners contention for the top four in the premier league received a huge blow after their 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace.
‘This was always going to be a big test for Emery this season,’ Parlour told talkSPORT.
‘I said at the start of the season if they get the fourth place it would be a brilliant season for Arsenal.
‘He’s still finding out his squad, and the transfer window is going to be very interesting to see what he does, whether he moves any players out and brings more in.
Defeat to Crystal Palace, now safe for another Premier League campaign, ended a run of ten straight league home victories for Emery’s Arsenal.
However, he denied to comment on Emery but said he deserves praise for his first season at North London club.
He added: ‘After seeing Manchester United and Spurs lose, it was a really good opportunity at home.
Arsenal have had a great record at the Emirates this year – they have only lost to Manchester City in the top six, have drawn with Liverpool and have beat Man United, Spurs and Chelsea.
‘So you would have fancied them, I didn’t see five goals in the game.
‘The team selection was very strange. They’d just come off the Napoli win, and you’re thinking, ‘let’s kick on now, there’s only four games left, play your strongest team’, but he didn’t.
‘There were a few mistakes from the manager, but you can’t knock him because he’s done a wonderful job so far.’
