Huddersfield 0-1 Arsenal: 5 Talking Points
Arsenal finally managed to pick up points on the road in 2018, in Arsene's final game as manager, with a win over the Terriers.
Arsenal travelled to Huddersfield for their final game of the season, after having failed to pick up any points on the road in the whole of 2018. The fixture held special significance for the Gunners as it coincides with Arsene Wenger's last game as manager for Arsenal.
A low-key affair in which the significance of the occasion overshadowed the football on the pitch, Arsenal did manage to come up with the perfect goal to give their boss the perfect send-off.
Here are the Talking Points:
#5 Arsene Wenger's 1235th game as Arsenal manager
All the talk before the kick-off, and even longer, to be honest, has been about the longest-serving manager stepping down at the end of the season.
Everyone at Arsenal had wanted to give the grand man a grand send-off by claiming the first European trophy under the Frenchman in the Europa League. When that didn't materialise everyone wanted to leave on a winning note. That didn't materialise either as the Gunners lost away at Leicester in their last fixture.
That meant that there was only one thing left to do for the players in the red and white of Arsenal, win the final game in charge for the man who has been at them for 22 glorious years.
That, they managed to do for the manager who has managed 1235 games for Arsenal Football Club.
