Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette gave Arsenal an unconvincing 2-1 win at Huddersfield to keep their top-four chase on track.
Iwobi opened the scoring against the run of play when his deflected effort from Sead Kolasinac’s cross was palmed into the corner of his net by Ben Hamer (16).
Huddersfield controlled possession for large periods of the game but nothing would fall for them inside the Arsenal area, and instead Lacazette doubled the lead just before half-time when turning in Ainsley Maitland-Niles’ low cross from close range (44).
The beleaguered hosts, who had lost 11 of their last 12, never gave up and finally got their rewards in the third minute of added time in the second half when Kolasinac turned Adama Diakhaby’s shot into his own goal.
