Aaron Mooy's assist couldn't save Huddersfield Town from slipping to a 2-1 defeat against Arsenal, while Mat Ryan copped three goals in Brighton Hove & Albion's 3-1 loss to Burnley.

Both Socceroos are having tough domestic seasons, with Mooy's Terriers now six points adrift at the bottom of the English Premier League.

Ryan's Seagulls have a larger safety net in 14th place, but have now lost six games on the trot, and the Socceroos' shaky performance in goal against Burnley did Chris Hughton's side no favours.

After Brighton was saved by the woodwork twice in the opening half hour, Burnely began to run riot after opening the scoring through Chris Wood. Ryan then brought down Ashley Barnes, who sealed the result for struggling Burnley.

Mooy was back to his eclectic best in moments against the Gunners, but a spirited performance and a typical-Mooy assist couldn't prevent Arsenal from taking all three points.

Huddersfield look an almost-certainty to suffer relegation this season, with Mooy already linked to potential moves to a series of mid and lower table Premier League sides.

Jackson Irvine and Massimo Luongo also suffered losses in the English Championship. Luongo's QPR almost recovered from 4-0 down to draw even, were it not for a missed 92nd minute penalty.

Irvine's Hull City are much improved this season, sitting 12th in the Championship after narrowly avoiding relegation last season. QPR are 15th and experiencing a harrowing losing streak.
