The game itself was fairly forgettable, Aaron Mooy hitting the crossbar late on as the Terriers came close to denying Wenger a winning finale.

Paul Merson is backing Arsenal to beat Huddersfield Town in their final Premier League game under Arsene Wenger. While speaking to Arsenal's official website he spoke about how he will want to change the first leg result against Atletico Madrid, where the Gunners conceded a goal with the Spanish club down to 10 men. "I am fascinated by India, I don't know why, but I have never been in India", said Wenger in the interview.

"But I would say personally from 2006 to 2015 it was certainly the period where I needed to be the strongest and did the best job".

"It's a bit of all of that (trophies and stadium)", Wenger said. "Not the most glamorous maybe, but the most hard".


The Gunners won the game 1-0. I thought maybe we won't score the second goal, but we can not concede - they never crossed the halfway line. Arsenal last had such a run of defeats in 1966.

"You see on Sunday when you speak about the goodbye I had with the fans is that some of the fans won't agree always with my decisions but I think they respected one thing - that I was honest, loyal and committed to the values of the club. Maybe it's better I go somewhere else".

"If you want to make it more attractive you have to go down to 16 (teams)", Wenger suggested.

Huddersfield boss David Wagner made a special presentation on behalf of the West Yorkshire club in the tunnel before kick-off, with the players forming a guard of honour as Wenger emerged onto the pitch one last time. "As a kid, I learnt about the country's special resistance, a non-violent resistance, and I was certainly impressed by that because the way we were educated was if someone wants to fight, you fight back". In Europe overall you have big, big financial powers and in December you can say who will win the league.
