Arsenal news: Mesut Ozil breaks silence after missing Huddersfield win | Football | Sport

The Gunners maintained their unbeaten run thanks to a 1-0 win over the Premier League strugglers, which came courtesy of a late Lucas Torreira goal.

Ozil wasn’t in the matchday squad due to a back injury, which also kept him out of the recent matches against Tottenham and Manchester United.

But his absence from the starting XI didn’t stop him for congratulating his team-mates for their hard-earned victory, which has stretched the north Londoner’s unbeaten streak to a staggering 21 matches.

Shortly after the final whistle, the former Germany international tweeted: “Yesss!

“Three points and the run continues. Good job Gunners.”

It took Ozil’s team-mates until the 83rd minute to breach Huddersfield’s defence.

Gunners chief Unai Emery was delighted that his troops kept going until the end and believes they showed great character not to let their heads drop when it looked like they wouldn’t make the breakthrough.

”It was a tough match, like many matches and today it is important because we didn’t have rhythm but still won,” he said.

“I’m very happy with the result. It was hard for us to control the match today. “Patience is the key word today. I wanted us to win more quickly but we needed to be patient.

“We can improve more and today we spoke that we want to win matches with more control. But we are very competitive and showed character.”

Arsenal will next be in action on Thursday night when they welcome Qarabag to the Emirates for their final Europa League group match.

They currently occupy top spot in Group E and have already booked passage through to the next round of the tournament, but they’ll need to beat the Azerbaijan Premier League champions to ensure they the win the group.
