Arsenal achieved their first away win since November at Premier League strugglers Huddersfield, maintaining their hopes of a top-four Premier League spot as they moved within a point of Manchester United.

As if in agreement with Wright, Arsenal manager, Unai Emery has kept his faith in Iwobi despite the constant criticism who has started 15 games in the English Premier League this season.

As if to justify the figures that put him top of Nigeria's highest earning soccer stars, Iwobi got the evening's opening salvo, before Alexandre Lacazette sealed the 2-1 away win at John Smith's Stadium. "We are (getting) closer to the other teams".

"If we ask is it hard for us, I think it's hard, but we can". But Emery insists his side remain on track for a top-four finish and a return to the Champions League. 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. We tried everything, we gave everything to win the game right until the end. Luckily two of those went in, although the first one was an extremely fortuitous deflection from Iwobi's volley, and if hadn't gone in the game could have gone in a different direction. "I will keep working and trying to do my best for the team".

Further forward, a relatively pleased Emery piled praise on goalscorer Iwobi, who now boasts a record of four goals and six assists this term. He has a very good physical condition.

Next up for Arsenal is two games against BATE Borisov in the Europa League, followed by two home games in the league against Southampton and AFC Bournemouth - four winnable games that would all bolster the Gunners chances of Champions League football next season. Judge us by our work and what the players are doing and this makes me proud.
