Arsenal win the hard way at Huddersfield

In the absence of the Greek global, Arsenal have been leaking goals like insane and if the Gunners lose their game vs Huddersfield then they might very well fall six points behind the top-four spot.

Sead Kolasinac put through his own net in stoppage time to give Huddersfield late hope, scoring Huddersfield's first goal in over nine hours of football in all competitions, but the visitors held on for the win.

Despite their frailties at the back, Arsenal remain just one point behind fourth placed Manchester United heading into the final 12 Premier League games of the season. "If they can find a way of creating a lot of chances, they will win".

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has kept his faith in Iwobi despite the constant criticism who has started 15 games in the Premier League this season.

"It was very important, this victory, it is three points for us to be closer to the top four, and our target is this". Luckily two of those went in, although the first one was an extremely fortuitous deflection from Iwobi's volley, and if hadn't gone in the game could have gone in a different direction.

He said: 'Yes, I think we should have had more situations to score more goals, but we played against a strong team today in the second half. Our motivation is very great and every player wants to struggle every match and be consistent over 38 matches.

Arsenal now have back to back Europa League matches against BATE Borisov before Premier League action returns in two weeks.

"We wait for the other teams and if they make mistakes".

"But we can also trust in us, and this victory is to confirm we are in our way and we can be positive".

"But he is somebody who, for me, with the right encouragement will be a very, very good player and a massive asset for Arsenal".
