Emery defiant as leaky Arsenal fail to convince again

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

The 22-year-old winger was one of the standout performers in Arsenal's 2-1 win away to the Premier League basement dwellers, with the Hale End academy product bagging his third goal of the season in the league.

Arsenal are one point and two places below Manchester United, while they are level on points with fifth-placed Chelsea.

You have to feel sorry for Huddersfield and their new manager Jan Siewert after they played their hearts out to try and get their first win in 12 games.

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.

The Armenian global was at the heart of the action as first-half goals from Alex Iwobi and Alex Lacazette sealed an important away victory.

"He had also the chance to assist Alexandre Lacazette, but I think his performance today, starting with his attitude, was very good".

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno says the team are ready to pounce should their top four rivals slip up. We do our work to win every game and on Saturday we did the job. 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.

"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". "The main thing is to score one more goal than them and, after that, it is to keep a clean sheet".

Emery added: "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".
