There were plenty of passionate celebrations in the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal scored late to win the three points against Huddersfield, and Unai Emery was no exception.
Without the creative talents of Arsenal’s usual attacking midfielders, the side struggled to create chances on Saturday. As a result, a game which should’ve been fairly straightforward on paper ended up going right down to the wire, before a moment of Lucas Torreira brilliance won the Gunners the points.
Unai Emery was clearly over the moon when the goal went in, punching the air and seemingly celebrating with club captain Laurent Koscielny:

Football fans love to see their managers showing their emotions, as coaches are generally expected to remain calm and respectful before, during and after a match. Arsenal supporters certainly enjoyed seeing Unai Emery’s excitement over the goal:
I love this guy!!

Hopefully, the Arsenal head coach will have plenty more moments to celebrate as we move into the second half of the season. The games are only going to get tougher, with a League Cup quarter-final and the knockout stages of the Europa League coming up soon.
If the team, the staff and the fans can stay united through that period, they’ll almost certainly have more to show for it at the end.
