The Gunners are now fifth, one point behind a resurgent Manchester United who have been in great form since the appointment of an interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer who took over from Mourinho.

"After 26 games there is a one-point difference between us and Manchester United".

A couple of months ago when Arsenal were going through their unbeaten run everyone thought that they would finish in the top-four very easily.

Arsenal achieved their first away win since November at Premier League strugglers Huddersfield, maintaining their hopes of a top-four Premier League spot as they moved within a point of Manchester United.

"He scored [on Saturday], got another very good chance and the possibility to assist [Alexandre] Lacazette, but I think his match - first starting with his attitude - was very big, and his performance was very good".

The former Paris Saint-Germain boss is also confident that his team have the motivation required to fight until the end.

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

According to him, the act is like they always expect him to make mistake so that they immediately take advantage of that to bully him with chants.

Alex Iwobi has been one of the most divisive players at Arsenal ever since his debut.

And when Unai Emery was asked about his thoughts on Arsenal making it to the Champions League next season, here's what the manager had to say. "The clean sheet is important but we can get a clean-sheet (sometimes) and draw".

Emery was clearly pleased by this.

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.
