    Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette scored first-half goals as Arsenal got their top-four hopes back on track with a 2-1 win at Huddersfield.

    Iwobi opened the scoring with a deflected volley in the first period and Lacazette stroked home his 12th goal of the season shortly before half-time.

    Sead Kolasinac's own goal in stoppage time raised a huge cheer from the Huddersfield faithful, but it was too little too late.

    The Gunners secured their first Premier League away win since November and kept their first clean sheet on the road this season as they moved level on points with fifth-placed Chelsea.

    Huddersfield have lost their last seven home league games and 12 of their last 13 in total to stay rooted to the bottom of the table, but there is little sense of despair at the John Smith's Stadium.

    And owner/chairman Dean Hoyle, back at the ground on matchday for the first time since recovering from pancreatitis, will have taken heart from another committed display from his side.
