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.

- Arsenal are the only side without an away clean sheet in the Premier League this season.

Arsenal moved up to fifth in the Premier League table on goal difference following Chelsea's 6-0 mauling at Manchester City on Sunday and now face BATE Borisov over two legs in the Europa League.

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.

He said: 'Yes, I think we should have had more situations to score more goals, but we played against a strong team today in the second half.

"I think today every player worked a lot, we continued our way and we know it's hard because the other teams in the top four are very strong".

Carragher was speaking at the half-way point of Chelsea's Premier League clash with Manchester City , which the Blues lost 6-0 . Aguero was inches away from completing his 15th City hat-trick when he headed against the woodwork from a De Bruyne cross.

"But we can also trust in us, and this victory is to confirm we are in our way and we can be positive".

Arsenal have endured an indifferent top-flight campaign, but the Gunners find themselves just one point adrift of Manchester United with 13 matches remaining.

"We have to work on this because the defence for me is the most thing to enable us to get back into the top four".

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has told his team-mates to tighten up at the back or they can kiss goodbye to Champions League football next season.

Further forward, a relatively pleased Emery piled praise on goalscorer Iwobi, who now boasts a record of four goals and six assists this term.

Against Huddersfield, the league's bottom side who had not scored a goal in eight hours and 27 minutes before Saturday, Arsenal, even with a two-goal advantage, never looked comfortable and with better finishing the hosts would have made a game of it.
