Huddersfield Town vs. Arsenal - Football Match Report

The story says that both Arsenal and Manchester United sent scouts to watch Godfrey in action in Sunday's East Anglian derby as they continue to monitor his progress this season.

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.

The Gunners are sixth but are only behind United by a point and Chelsea on goal difference.

"If we ask is it hard for us, I think it's hard, but we can".

"But we can and day 26 we are on our way".

Huddersfield's positive build-up play and possession was dealt a blow by two sloppy pieces of defending to allow Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette to give Arsenal a 2-0 lead at the break, which proved insurmountable even with a last-minute own goal from Sead Kolasinac.

"We are moving closer, with our target, to the other clubs".


"A clean sheet is important, but our main worry is to win", Emery said.

'We knew we had the quality to win today, it's about us and we did that'.

"This victory was very important, the points and to be closer to the top four, " Emery told his post-match presser.

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

"And our target is this, knowing we need to take the regularity [consistency] at home and away above all".

Under Unai Emery, the 22-year-old has grown in confidence and has scored four Premier League goals this campaign.
