Arsenal win the hard way at Huddersfield

11 February 2019

The Saturday afternoon clash saw Arsenal pick up their first away win in the Premier League since November, but Huddersfield caused a late scare with an injury-time goal.

"Defensively they are one of the worst sides I've ever seen in the top six of the Premier League", former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson said.

However, the star player had missed a great opportunity to have the Gunners go ahead in the game which did not g well with some fans as they jeered at him while he was left the pitch.

Manchester City inflicted a huge dent in Chelsea's Champions League aspirations for next season after delivering a 6-0 thrashing of the visitors at the Etihad on Sunday in the Premier League.

Alexandre Lacazette doubled their lead just before the break, but Arsenal endured jittery moments before Adama Diakhaby's shot was bundled in by a combination of Nacho Monreal and Sead Kolasinac for the hosts in stoppage time. "The first target is to score one more goal than the opposition then a clean sheet". "After 26 games there is a one-point difference between us and Manchester United". For all that, the hosts did not pick ways through Arsenal's three centre-backs very often, whereas Arsenal looked risky almost every time they tore forward.

"We've been working a lot on transitioning when we get the ball, to counter-attack and attack with speed".

"We struggled every minute of the 90 minutes, and I think we controlled the match - but maybe I want more possession".

Arsenal haven't kept a clean sheet on the road in the league all season, although when Emery was questioned about this, he didn't seem phased.

Pleased to have returned and ready to help the team, the 3-year-old added: "Yes, I was happy to be back after two months and I was excited".
