Emery wants wins, not clean sheets, Football News & Top Stories

Alex Iwobi's volley is deflected into the Huddersfield goal to give Arsenal the lead

Victory moves Arsenal a point behind fourth-placed Manchester United in the congested race for UEFA Champions League qualification, with Chelsea going to Manchester City on Sunday afternoon (Monday morning AEDT).

Deep into injury time on Saturday, Adama Diakhaby broke clear on goal, lifted the ball over Bernd Leno and watched as Sead Kolasinac turned into his own goal via an unfortunate deflection.

After losing their first two league games to champions Manchester City and Chelsea, Unai Emery's reign as Arsenal manager went smoothly and they did not taste defeat again until December 16 - a run of 22 matches unbeaten in all competitions.

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

Arsenal boss Unai Emery says he is confident in sealing a top four finish this season after the club secured their first away win since November at bottom club Huddersfield.

Arsenal have won the joint most points in the final 10 minutes of matches this season, but relying heavily on second-half turnarounds and late shows could only go on for so long. How we created chances made me very proud. We do our work to win every game and on Saturday we did the job.

Two well-executed goals saw Arsenal defeat Huddersfield Town 2-1 in Saturday's Premier League game and Alex Iwobi played starring roles in both efforts. "I will fight until the end to keep these lads in the Premier League". Our motivation is very great and every player wants to, in every match, and have regularity and consistency in the Premier League in 38 matches.

Next up for Arsenal is two games against BATE Borisov in the Europa League, followed by two home games in the league against Southampton and AFC Bournemouth - four winnable games that would all bolster the Gunners chances of Champions League football next season.
