Sunday was a good day for the away sides, as Arsenal and Huddersfield Town won their respective matches in Week 13 of the Premier League season.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang netted the winner for the Gunners, who beat Bournemouth 2-1 at the Vitality Stadium, while Aaron Mooy was on point twice for the Terriers in the 2-0 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Here is a look at the standings after Sunday's action (Position, team, games played, goal difference, points):

1 Manchester City 13, +35, 35

2 Liverpool 13, +21, 33

3 Tottenham Hotspur 13, +12, 30

4 Chelsea 13, +17, 28

5 Arsenal 13, +12, 27

6 Everton 13, +5, 22

7 Manchester United 13, -1, 21

8 Bournemouth 13, +4, 20

9 Watford 13, 0, 20

10 Leicester City 13, +1, 18

11 Wolverhampton Wanderers 13, -3, 16

12 Brighton & Hove Albion 13, -5, 15

13 West Ham United 13, -8, 12

14 Huddersfield Town 13, -14, 10

15 Newcastle United 12, -6, 9

16 Crystal Palace 13, -9, 9

18 Southampton 13, -14, 8

19 Cardiff City 13, -15, 8

20 Fulham 13, -19, 8


Arsenal got back to winning ways after three consecutive draws, but Bournemouth made them work for the three points.

A Jefferson Lerma own goal gave the visitors the lead in the first half, but Joshua King tied things up again. After the break, Aumabeyang restored the lead from close range, and Lerma nearly redeemed himself, coming agonisingly close to the equaliser.

According to Sky Sports Statto, the match-winner got his 20th goal for the Gunners on Sunday:

⚽️ @Aubameyang7 scores his 20th goal for Arsenal (in his 31st app for the club) & draws level with Sergio Aguero as this season’s PL top scorer, with 8 goals https://t.co/PLPFNkxsW8

The result gave Arsenal some breathing room, with Everton on their tails. The gap between the two sides is back to five points after the Toffees' win over Cardiff City on Saturday.

Arsenal trail Chelsea by just a single point, and their away form is a big reason for their good position in the standings. Manager Unai Emery has fared far better this year than Arsene Wenger did last season:

📊 Arsenal have won 4 of their 6 away PL matches under Unai Emery - as many as they won in their 19 away PL games last season https://t.co/3Be5jpSG38

A top-four finish would be an incredible achievement for Emery in his first year, and after a solid start to the campaign, that's likely what the Gunners are aiming for.

In Sunday's other contest, Huddersfield shocked Wolves, who continue to slide down the table after a hot start. Mooy was the unlikely hero for the Terriers:

Hadn't scored since December 2017. Scores twice in one game. Aaron Mooy's double puts Huddersfield 2-0 up at Wolves #WOLHUD https://t.co/kZuQZzNUFy

It was just their second win of the season and moved David Wagner's side out of last place and the relegation zone completely.

Wolves are now winless in their last five Premier League matches, and while they won't have to worry about a relegation battle anytime soon, that may become a reality if this slide carries into the festive period.
