Huddersfield 0:1 Arsenal—Vote for Player Ratings/MOTM!

Arsenal ended a 22-year long era on a relative high note, seeing off a feisty Huddersfield to allow Arsène to bid us all adieu on the heels of a win. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang found his 10th goal in just 13 Prem matches, becoming the fastest Gunner to reach that mark. There will be time for hagiographies and remembrances later; for now, enjoy the result and rate the lads!

Arsenal 5-0 Huddersfield—Vote for Player Ratings and MOTM!

Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring just three minutes in, finishing from a slotted pass from Aaron Ramsey, and that's where it stood until halftime. In the second half, however, the floodgates flew open as Giroud, on for Lacazette, bagged a brace to which Alexis and Özil added goals of their own. All in all, it was a domineering performance of the sort that we just haven't seen yet against smaller sides, against whom we've eked past or slipped up against. We've opened up a bit of space and keep pace with Chelsea and Man City, who also won today. More on the bigger picture later; for now, let's rate the lads!

Arsenal-Huddersfield Preview: Can Arsenal climb to third in the Prem?

A weekend that was both exhausting and exhilirating for very opposite but parallel reasons leads to Wednesday's clash. Arsenal, of course, might have a spring in their step after nabbing a late and controversial winner against Burnley. Huddersfield might very well feel hard done by after seeing a potentially glorious result slip away after City found a controversial equaliser and rather-lucky winner. Whether they can bounce back in short order will be a pressing question, all the more for a side that has not won away from since matchday one, beating woeful Crystal Palace. Arsenal return home, where we have been dominant.

Herbert Chapman: Huddersfield Legend.

Huddersfield, newly promoted to English soccer's top-flight, struggle, bravely but barely grasping at anything to stay up. Bigger clubs with more resources can bully them. Enter a young, new manager with fresh ideas about fitness, about positive, flowing football, about tactics and flexibility. He energizes the squad and propels them towards to the league title. I'm not talking about David Wagner, however. I'm summarising the exploits of one Herbert Chapman before he became the Arsenal legend that we know and love. In West Yorkshire, Chapman might be even more respected and beloved among the Terriers faithful than he is among Gooners.
