EPL Round-Up: Iwobi scores for Arsenal as Liverpool regain top spot

Mesut Ozil

They caused enough trouble to Arsenal in general play to have Unai Emery roaring and gesticulating frantically from the sidelines for much of the first half.

They are now fifth, a point from United, who are in fourth.

Victory moves Arsenal a point behind fourth-placed Manchester United in the congested race for UEFA Champions League qualification, with Chelsea going to Manchester City on Sunday afternoon (Monday morning AEDT). "The first target is to score one more goal than the opposition then a clean sheet".

Iwobi should have added his second after Mkhitaryan fed him but he fired his shot into Hamer's chest, while Leno denied Diakhaby again and Huddersfield's home debutant Karlan Grant had an effort cleared off the line at the other end.

The Gunners are now fifth, one point behind a resurgent Manchester United who have been in great form since the appointment of an interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer who took over from Mourinho.

Liverpool hosted Bournemouth as they looked to climb back to the top of the Premier League table.

"I think Chelsea, with this roster, have been far too inconsistent".

Wright said: "What I like about [Alex] Iwobi, somebody that takes a lot of stick from the Arsenal fan base, is he continually tries to get forward and tries to play his game, which is taking players on and getting into the box".

"The most important thing is that I come in, in a very hard situation".

"Every player worked very well and the last action, unfortunately for us they scored and also maybe they deserved it".

Huddersfield Town manager Jan Siewert insists that he "will fight for my life" to keep the club in the Premier League next season following their encouraging performance during their defeat to Arsenal on Saturday.
