Unai Emery was pleased with how Arsenal controlled the game as they beat Huddersfield 2-1 in the Premier League. 

The Gunners beat the Terriers thanks to goals from Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette to stay in touch with the top four.

The last time Arsenal won three points on the road was when they beat Bournemouth on November 25, and Emery was delighted to end a run of three away league defeats by beaten the basement boys, who have now registered 12 Premier League defeats from 13.

The Spaniard told Sky Sports: "Their coach said yesterday they need to run a lot, and we spoke in the season that we need to show everybody we want these three points, and run like they are running and also more.

"We struggled every minute of the 90 minutes, and I think we controlled the match - but maybe I want more possession. It's a good result after a lot of matches not winning away."

Arsenal moved into fifth spot, a point of the top four, pending the result in Sunday’s showdown clash between Manchester City and Chelsea at the Etihad.

Emery added: "I think today every player worked a lot, we continued our way and we know it's difficult because the other teams in the top four are very strong.

"But we can also trust in us, and this victory is to confirm we are in our way and we can be positive."
