Emery defiant as leaky Arsenal fail to convince again

Arsenal news Gilberto Silva Mesut Ozil

And as a result of Chelsea losing 6-0 to City, the North London club are now fifth just one shy of the Champions League places.

Arsenal took the lead in the 16th minute.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan nearly marked his return from seven weeks out with a foot injury with a goal but he could not beat goalkeeper Ben Hamer at the end of a flowing Arsenal move.

Alexandre Lacazette then swept home Ainsley Maitland-Niles' cross from close range before the interval to seal their win.

Huddersfield nearly replied in the 50th minute but Adama Diakhaby's driven effort from a low Kongolo cross was saved comfortably by Bernd Leno.

Manchester United defender Phil Jones extends deal to 2023
City boss Pep Guardiola refuses to discount United, who are 14 points behind them, from the current title race. The contract includes the option to extend by a further year.

Against Huddersfield Town, though, Iwobi was the former for the Gunners.

Analysing the game on Match of the Day as a pundit, Wright was quick to praise Iwobi for his performance and issued a message to Arsenal fans to get behind the winger.

What does it mean?

"We are at the moment one point off Manchester United".

While Iwobi and Lacazette missed opportunities to increase Arsenal's winning margin, Huddersfield also had chances via Adama Diakhaby and Laurent Depoitre.

The absence of Ozil and Ramsey created a spot for Mkhitaryan and the Armenia global was lively, if understandably a little rusty, on his return to action.

The Gunners have now slipped down to sixth place in the Premier League standings and boss Unai Emery will be desperate for his men not to drop points at Huddersfield.

Iwobi, whose goal went in with a deflection, will now turn his focus on the UEFA Europa League knock-out fixture against BATE Borisov, with a view to adding to his fourth goal of the season in all competitions.

His goal not only ended Arsenal's dismal winless away record, which saw the North London side claim their first away win in the league since November but saw Iwobi win praise from Gunners legend Ian Wright.
