Arsenal win the hard way at Huddersfield

Arsenal win the hard way at Huddersfield

Alex Iwobi scored his third Premier League goal this season against Huddersfield which helped the North London outdid secure a 2-1 win over their host away from home on Saturday.

"It was very important to win, to be closer to the top four and our target is this", Emery said.

The Gunners were on course for their maiden Premier League shutout on the road this campaign until Sead Kolašinac turned the ball into his own net via Adama Diakhaby's effort three minutes into injury time.

Not that Emery was too concerned about that late blot on his team's performance.

And when Unai Emery was asked about his thoughts on Arsenal making it to the Champions League next season, here's what the manager had to say.

"Every player worked very well and the last action, unfortunately for us they scored and also maybe they deserved it".

And they certainly tried, and in fact had more possession over the 90 minutes at 55%, and the sad truth is that that they were let down by the lack of finishing and confidence in front of goal.

Wright said: "What I like about [Alex] Iwobi, somebody that takes a lot of stick from the Arsenal fan base, is he continually tries to get forward and tries to play his game, which is taking players on and getting into the box". "It is my personality".

"As soon as I saw it coming in the air and saw the defender coming, I thought I just had to get a good connection, and luckily for me, it went through the guy's leg with a bit of a deflection and went in", Iwobi told club website.

"We were in a hard moment so these three points are good for us".

For all the Terriers' admirable qualities, their shortcomings, particularly in attack, allowed Unai Emery's side to brush off the absence of top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and win without ever being at their best.
