We’re ‘on our way’ to top-four target Emery

Unai Emery

The Gunners have now slipped down to sixth place in the Premier League standings and boss Unai Emery will be desperate for his men not to drop points at Huddersfield.

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

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).

Arsenal manager Unai Emery was pleased that his side managed to end their six-game winless run away from home in the Premier League following their narrow victory over Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Arsenal have also won the joint most points this season in the final 10 minutes of matches, but relying heavily on second-half turnarounds and late shows could only go on for so long.

Srisuwan said his complaint to the Election Commission would ask it to recommend that a Constitutional Court dissolve the party. The junta leader, Prayuth Chan-ocha, is also contesting the race for prime minister as the candidate of a pro-military party.

The result kept the Gunners in the thick of the chase for a top-four finish and Champions League football although questions remain about their defensive frailty. "After 26 games there is a one-point difference between us and Manchester United". "It is my personality (why he was so animated), if in one moment I think it is negative, I would not do it". Our motivation is very great and every player wants to struggle every match and be consistent over 38 matches.

Wright said: "What I like about [Alex] Iwobi, somebody that takes a lot of stick from the Arsenal fan base, is he continually tries to get forward and tries to play his game, which is taking players on and getting into the box". We were working well.

And they certainly tried, and in fact had more possession over the 90 minutes at 55%, and the sad truth is that that they were let down by the lack of finishing and confidence in front of goal.

Insisting that a top-four finish was a realistic target, the Spaniard said: "I think it's hard, but we can (finish in the top four)".
