Unai Emery urges Arsenal to improve away form amid criticism

  • Jurgen Klopp cut a frustrated figure on the touchline

Rafa Benitez's men did their best to keep Son at bay but he found the space to take his shot in the 83rd minute and with a little help from the Newcastle custodian Martin Dubravka, the Tottenham forward made sure they kept the pressure on Manchester City and Liverpool going.

The 26-year-old has endured another somewhat underwhelming season in north London, falling behind Laurent Koscielny and Sokratis Papastathopoulos in Unai Emery's first choice central defender pecking order.

The Gunners fell out of the top four positions last weekend after suffering a 3-1 defeat to champions Manchester City.

A 2-1 win at Bournemouth on November 25 was the last time Emery's side took three points on the road, but Huddersfield looks the flawless opponents after losing 11 of their past 12 league games.

Emery's side have lost three consecutive Premier League away games and failed to win any of their last six on the road and, ahead of Saturday's visit to bottom side Huddersfield, the Spanish coach has insisted Arsenal's problems start in the mind.

"One month ago we were in the same situation but it's not easy. The first is to think we need to win and after that it's how we can win - preparing tactically and individually". I spoke with the players [and told them] we need to think this match is very important for us and every player needs to be ready, be focused and be thinking we need to win this match. The next opportunity is Saturday against Huddersfield. "We need to be confident and take more confidence and continue working". After that, we know we can win. We've tried playing with three and two centre-backs.

"Huddersfield played some nice football in their defeat by Chelsea last week, but they looked very open", added Lawrenson.

"We have to continue in our way with passion and also stay calm, but above all we must work hard and take a good feeling in training and then show it in the match. If we can not, it's different".
