Unai Emery confident of top four chances

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.

As if to justify the figures that put him top of Nigeria's highest earning soccer stars, Iwobi got the evening's opening salvo, before Alexandre Lacazette sealed the 2-1 away win at John Smith's Stadium.

However, Jurgen Klopp's men were back to their best as they swept Bournemouth aside, with Sadio Mane, Georginio Wijnaldum and Mohamed Salah all finding the back of the net in style.

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). "If they can find a way of creating a lot of chances, they will win".

"It was very important, this victory, it is three points for us to be closer to the top four, and our target is this". We do our work to win every game and on Saturday we did the job.

At the heart of the problem is their defensive record - Arsenal remain the only team in the league without an away clean sheet.

For New Zealand , Blair Tickner has been given his maiden national cap and he replaces rested Lockie Ferguson in the line-up. On the third ball of the final over, Karthik denied a single and later ended up taking a single off the next ball.

He said: "It is game 26 and there is a one-point difference between Manchester United and us".

Lacazette admitted the away win drought was playing on Arsenal's mind, but the striker insisted it was a tough encounter with the Terriers.

And he will be encouraged by the fact Arsenal have won all three of their Premier League meetings with Huddersfield.

Adama Diakhaby had two good chances to get Huddersfield - who had drawn once and lost 11 of their previous 12 league games - back into the match, but failed to really test Bernd Leno in the Arsenal goal.

"The most important thing is that I come in, in a very hard situation".
