Arsenal Confirmed lineup vs Huddersfield: Torreira, Guendouzi start; Suarez on the bench

Arsenal boss Unai Emery says he is confident in sealing a top four finish this season after the club secured their first away win since November at bottom club Huddersfield.

The troubled Terriers spent most of the game on the front foot but all they had to show for their efforts was an injury-time Sead Kolasinac own goal.

Arsenal have announced their team and substitutes to take on struggling Huddersfield Town at the John Smith's Stadium this afternoon.

Insisting that a top-four finish was a realistic target, the Spaniard said: "I think it's hard, but we can (finish in the top four)".

The 22-year-old Iwobi, who was substituted two minutes from time, had a rating of 7.2, completed 61% passes, won four duels and a clearance, en route to equaling his best log of three goals in a single season of the English Premier League. He had also the chance to assist Alexandre Lacazette, but I think his performance, starting with his attitude, was very good.

"A clean sheet is important, but our main worry is to win", he said.

A Nigerian professional footballer, Alex Iwobi, who plays as a forward for Arsenal, contributed to the sinking of Huddersfield in Saturday's encounter.

The battle for Champions League qualification looks set to go to the wire, with a single point splitting United in fourth and Arsenal in sixth, although Chelsea have a game in hand.

Next up for Arsenal is two games against BATE Borisov in the Europa League, followed by two home games in the league against Southampton and AFC Bournemouth - four winnable games that would all bolster the Gunners chances of Champions League football next season.

"Every player worked very well and the last action, unfortunately for us, they scored and also, maybe they deserved it".
