Alex Iwobi's volley is deflected into the Huddersfield goal to give Arsenal the lead

Unai Emery says he is confident of sealing a top-four slot after Arsenal secured their first away win since November at Huddersfield.

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

Despite their frailties at the back, Arsenal remain just one point behind fourth placed Manchester United heading into the final 12 Premier League games of the season.

Sead Kolasinac put through his own net in stoppage time to give Huddersfield late hope, scoring Huddersfield's first goal in over nine hours of football in all competitions, but the visitors held on for the win.

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 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".

Lacazette admitted the away win drought was playing on Arsenal's mind, but the striker insisted it was a tough encounter with the Terriers.

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

Mkhitaryan told the media that he is aiming to help Arsenal win as many games as possible having returned from injury.

"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".

"Defensively they are one of the worst sides I've ever seen in the top six of the Premier League", former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson said.

Emery was clearly pleased by this.

"In the first half we played very well and had good control". Judge us by our work and what the players are doing and this makes me proud.
