Arsenal 1 Huddersfield Town 0: Torreira moves Gunners Up To Third

The Gunners unbeaten run was extended to 21 games in all competitions as Lucas Torreira scored late in a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield.

Lucas Torreira's 83rd-minute overhead kick earned Arsenal a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield Town that moved them into the top four and extended their unbeaten run to 21 games in all competitions.

Arsenal had scored in each of their 14 Premier League matches since a 2-0 loss to Manchester City in their opening fixture, but they were frustrated by a stubborn Huddersfield side until Torreira's strike late on.

Arsenal moved up to third with the victory while Huddersfield dropped into the relegation zone.

Referee Paul Tierney handed out seven first-half yellow cards – five of those shown in as many minutes – and Arsenal felt further injustice when Lacazette was denied the opener having been adjudged offside, though the flag only went up after Huddersfield's Mathias Jorgensen had touched the ball.
