Leno frustrated as Arsenal wait for first away clean sheet goes on

Although he admitted a touch of luck helped him hit target on Saturday, Iwobi also revealed the level of training and technique The Gunners continue putting in, which he believes helped them on the evening.

Following victory over Huddersfield Town, Arsenal boss Unai Emery spoke of his side's chances of finishing in the top four and qualifying for the UEFA Champions League.

There are twelve games left in the Premier League season and if Arsenal are able to finish on a strong note, getting back into the Champions League will be a real possibility.

Against Huddersfield, the league's bottom side who had not scored a goal in eight hours and 27 minutes before Saturday, Arsenal, even with a two-goal advantage via Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette, never looked comfortable.

"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".

"I think this season we have conceded goals too easily". "The main thing is to score one more goal than them and, after that, it is to keep a clean sheet". 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.

It could have been more for Liverpool too, but they settled with three, in the end, to take back top spot, at least until Man City host Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

"This season, we don't have a clean sheet away?" asked the goalkeeper when the stat was mentioned by a reporter.

"As soon as I saw it in the air and saw the defender coming, I thought I just had to get a good connection".

"Defensively they are one of the worst sides I've ever seen in the top six of the Premier League", former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson said.
