Arsenal v Huddersfield - story of the match

Arsenal strengthened their position in the Premier League top four as they made light work of Huddersfield to maintain their healthy home form.

The Gunners have now won their last 12 games at the Emirates Stadium and they eased to a 5-0 victory as Mesut Ozil once again starred in front of the home fans.

Alexandre Lacazette gave the hosts the perfect start with his seventh of the season and, although the Terriers rallied, they were blown away in the second half as Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez and Ozil all struck in a four-minute blitz, with Giroud adding another late on.

Tweet of the match

"Arsenal winning 4-0 & I'm stuck at a dinner with this miserable sod. @jackwhitehall #pca50th" - television presenter and Arsenal fan Piers Morgan was left to rue not attending the Emirates.

Moment of the match

Mesut Ozil exchanged passes first with Sead Kolasinac, then with Alexis Sanchez, before squaring to Olivier Giroud in the box, who slid home a facile finish for Arsenal's second goal, killing the contest.

Star man - Mesut Ozil

The German playmaker laid on Arsenal's first two goals then chipped home the fourth, taking the plaudits in a routine but messy victory for the Gunners.

Stat of the day

Mesut Ozil had a hand in three goals in a Premier League match for the first time in his career.
