Arsenal Score 3 Away Player Ratings Kos Pick of Defence

Not a great performance by any means. First half we were clinical but kept inviting Huddersfield into the game through our own sloppy play. Second half Huddersfield had much more of the play and created a number of chances. We had opportunities to seal the win but failed to take them. Huddersfield scored late on to ensure a tense finish. Midfield was completely anonymous today while we just make too many unforced errors, and Iwobi is wasteful.

Its not often Arsenal score three away, pity one was for Huddersfield

Ratings:

Leno - 7. Nothing to do in the first half. Made a couple of saves in the second half and was off his line quickly to stop Depoitre.

Mustafi - 4. We've seen him have lots of bad games for the Arsenal and make a lot of terrible mistakes, but he's always had a lot of (misplaced) confidence. First half today his confidence looked completely shot. I suspect he may have seen the Twitter thread about his defensive errors this week... Shaky throughout.
Koscielny - 7. Did well again today. Dealt with crosses and defended well. Pick of the defence.
Monreal - 6. Had a tough time wit Diakhaby's runs in behind. Cleared off the line in the second half.

Maitland-Niles - 7. Got forward loads in the first half and assisted Lacazette's goal. Guilty of a really sloppy giveaway at the start of the second half but played well otherwise.
Torreira - 5. Hardly noticed him, particularly on the ball. Felt the game past him by.
Guendouzi - 6. Played some good passes but felt he had a lot to do on his own.
Kolasinac - 6. Excellent cross for Iwobi's deflected opener but he didn't help Monreal out much.

Iwobi - 6. Scored and was a constant threat throughout, but he could've produced a lot more.
Lacazette - 7. Decent performance alone up front. Scored and moved well.
Mkhitaryan - 7. Had a really good first half on his comeback, stringing a lot of moves together in the final third and could've scored himself. Quieter second half.

Subs:

Elneny - 5. Bizarrely took a header right off Lacazette's head.
Suarez - 5. Didn't see a lot of him as we hung on.
Willock - N/A. Not on long.
