Huddersfield Town vs. Arsenal - Football Match Report

Huddersfield Town vs. Arsenal - Football Match Report

Arsenal play both legs of their Europe League last 32 tie against BATE Borisov before returning to Premier League action when they host Southampton on February 24.

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

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 via Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette, never looked comfortable.

And the Huddersfield fans finally had reason to celebrate after four games without a goal as Kolasinac turned into his own net in the 93rd minute, while Leno then saved from Juninho Bacuna to protect Arsenal's victory.

"After 26 games there is a one-point difference between us and Manchester United".

Lacazette scored what proved to be the winning goal as the Gunners beat Huddersfield 2-1 on Saturday.

Special weather statement issued, calling for significant winter storm on Tuesday
Stretches of interstates 29, 35, 80, 90 and 94 are expected to be hard and risky to travel on during the height of the storm. Cloudy weather will keep Sunday morning temperatures above freezing: expect lows in the upper 30s to low 40s.

Sergio Aguero becomes Manchester City's all-time record league goalscorer
Before starting on his way to another hat trick, Aguero uncharacteristically missed the target from close range. But on the hour, Leicester was awarded a penalty when defender Jan Vertonghen knocked over James Maddison.

Winter weather forecasted to strike again Tuesday
This is the area where freezing drizzle/sleet will lead to a light glazing of ice by the end of the day. Downed tree limbs and power outages are possible along I-94 where ice accumulated earlier in the day.

When questioned about his sides capability of finishing in the top four, Emery was optimistic.

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

For all the Terriers' admirable qualities, their shortcomings, particularly in attack, allowed Unai Emery's side to brush off the absence of top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and win without ever being at their best.

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

"It always seems to happen when we are two goals in front, so maybe we are losing a little bit of concentration because we feel too comfortable when the games are coming to the end".

We played against Arsenal, one of the top teams in the table and we had many chances.
