Match Report: Huddersfield 1-2 Arsenal (Watch All Goals)

0 256

Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal an unconvincing 2-1 win at Huddersfield to keep their top-four chase on track.

The result saw the Gunners, who remain sixth, move within a point of fourth-placed Manchester United and level on points with fifth-placed Chelsea, who face Manchester City on Sunday (16:00 GMT).

Iwobi opened the scoring against the run of play when his deflected effort from Sead Kolasinac’s cross was palmed into the corner of his net by Ben Hamer (16).

Alexandre Lacazette’s tidy finish from Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ cross ensured victory despite a late Huddersfield fight-back.

The spirited hosts, who had lost 11 of their last 12, never gave up and finally got their reward in the third minute of added time in the second half when Kolasinac turned Adama Diakhaby’s shot into his own goal, but it was not enough to stop Arsenal pulling back within a point of fourth-placed Manchester United.
