Leno frustrated as Arsenal wait for first away clean sheet goes on

Share

Unai Emery said he is not anxious that Arsenal failed to keep a first away clean sheet of the season, as first-half goals from Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazatte secured a 2-1 win at Premier League bottom side Huddersfield.

Arsenal are still the only Premier League side not to have kept a clean sheet this season but Emery was more pleased with the win.

After losing their first two league games to champions Manchester City and Chelsea, Unai Emery's reign as Arsenal manager went smoothly and they did not taste defeat again until December 16 - a run of 22 matches unbeaten in all competitions.

It could have been more for Liverpool too, but they settled with three, in the end, to take back top spot, at least until Man City host Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

"I think this season we have conceded goals too easily".

"Our motivation is very great, every player wants to win every match". But Emery insists his side remain on track for a top-four finish and a return to the Champions League.

The Armenian worldwide was at the heart of the action as first-half goals from Alex Iwobi and Alex Lacazette sealed an important away victory. "I will fight until the end to keep these lads in the Premier League".

Analysing the game on Match of the Day as a pundit, Wright was quick to praise Iwobi for his performance and issued a message to Arsenal fans to get behind the winger.

"At the moment there is one point difference between United and us".

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. "Every player was working and helping each other and today I'm very proud with our work".
