Arsenal 1-0 Huddersfield Town: Torreira goal the difference for Gunners [Tweets]

Lucas Torreira made the difference on a frustrating evening for Arsenal, who notched up a narrow 1-0 win over Huddersfield Town at the Emirates on Saturday.

On an evening when the chances came few and far between for them, the hosts were almost made to rue the misses by Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the first half. Arsenal should have led going into half-time either way, with Lacazette denied a goal due to a dubious offside call.

The second half continued in a similarly frustrating fashion, as the Gunners struggled to carve out meaningful chances on a consistent basis. But, just when it looked like Huddersfield were going to hold them to a draw, Lucas Torreira delivered the goods with an acrobatic finish.

The goal from the Uruguayan international was the difference in the end, as Arsenal stretched their unbeaten run to 21 games. And, “One nil to the Arsenal” was the chant on the fans’ minds, as the North Londoners climbed up to third on the Premier League table.

Another major subject that Arsenal fans discussed was the questionable offside call that denied Alexandre Lacazette a clear goal. The calls for VAR grew.

Meanwhile, the big concern for Arsenal is the situation at the heart of the defence, with Sokratis suspended for the next league game while Shkodran Mustafi picked up an injury.

But, the undoubted hero for Arsenal was yet again Lucas Torreira, who is already a contender for signing of the season.
