    Arsenal earned a first away win in the Premier League since November, beating Huddersfield Town 2-1 at John Smith's Stadium thanks to goals from Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette first-half goals as Arsenal got their top-four hopes back on track.

    The Gunners made their early pressure pay off when 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 KolaĊĦinac's late own goal raised a huge cheer from the Huddersfield faithful and also that Arsenal' s two-month wait for a clean sheet continued, but Emery was pleased that his side finally secured all three points away from the Emirates this weekend.

    The Gunners secured their first Premier League away win since November to end their six-game winless run away from home. The Gunners also led a Premier League away game by two or more goals at half-time for the first time since August 2016.

    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.

    Arsenal stay sixth on 50 points, while Huddersfield remain bottom on 11 points, 13 off safety.
