Premier League 2017/18, Huddersfield 0-1 Arsenal: Three things Arsenal did right
Arsenal finally clinched three points away from home in 2018 and also sent off their manager, Arsene Wenger, with a victory against Huddersfield Town AFC on Sunday (May 13). The visitors won 1-0 on the day, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring for the Gunners in the 38th minute of the game.
This was the tenth goal for the centre-forward in Arsenal colours in 13 games, making him the fastest player in Arsenal history to reach that milestone. It was his solitary goal on the night that ended the North London side's dreadful run of not getting a single point away from home this year, and also ensured that their long-serving manager did not have to sign off with anything less than a victory.
After 22 years at Arsenal, the Frenchman has stepped away from the job now. Here are three things he and his team did right to ensure a win against Huddersfield in his last game as the boss:
#3 Playing David Ospina
The Colombian international was pivotal in Arsenal's victory at Huddersfield on the last day of the Premier League season. Starting him ahead of Petr Cech proved to be beneficial on the day, as he made a string of saves in both halves of the game to keep his side in contention in the first half and to secure their lead in the second.
The goalkeeper was in excellent nick on Sunday, making three saves and two clearances for the visitors. Ospina also won all the duels he participated in, being a strong force in front of the goal to keep a well-deserved clean sheet on the day.
