Arsenal have opened the scoring against relegation candidates Huddersfield, after just 16 minutes of play, thanks to a stroke of luck following Alex Iwobi’s volley.
The Gunners looked wide awake whilst Huddersfield looked half-asleep, Henrikh Mkhitaryan – who has just returned from injury – showed his playmaking talents by threading a lovely ball into Sead Kolasinac.
The Terriers allowed Kolasinac all the time in the world and the Bosnia international picked out Iwobi with a lovely cross, the winger watched the ball float in the air before lashing a volley towards goal.
Iwobi’s volley was deflected by Terrence Kongolo and goalkeeper Ben Hamer was left bamboozled and the ball hit the back of the net.
