Huddersfield Vs Arsenal Match Preview:
After a disappointing game against Manchester City, The Gunners continue their travel to face relegation battling Huddersfield Town for the Huddersfield Vs Arsenal fixture on Saturday. Arsenal have dropped to sixth on the Premier League table now and can’t afford to lose any more games if they wish to make it to the top four.
This is first of the three easy game run for Arsenal against teams in the bottom half of the table after which they face Spurs in The North London Derby.
The good news for Arsenal is that Henrikh Mkhitaryan has returned to full training and might make it to the bench for the Huddersfield Vs Arsenal game. Shokdran Mustafi was taken off against Manchester City because of an injury but has returned to full training.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was reportedly ill earlier this week but should be good to start for the Huddersfield Vs Arsenal match. Granit Xhaka and Ainsley Maitland-Niles are both being assessed ahead of the game.
Sokratis, Bellerin, Danny Welbeck and Rob Holding are all ruled out for long.
Arsenal’s Predicted Lineup For The Huddersfield Vs Arsenal Game:
Bernd Leno will start for the Gunners in goal. The German was one of Arsenal’s best players against Manchester City and will not lose out his place in the starting XI anytime soon.

Centerbacks and Full Backs:
Arsenal’s poor defensive record continues as only Fulham (2) have less clean sheets than the Gunners (4). And none of Arsenal’s four clean sheets have come on away games.
Arsenal started with a back three against Manchester City but I believe the unpredictable Unai Emery might revert to a back four for this game.
Shkodran Mustafi and club captain Laurent Koscielny, who scored against Manchester City will start as the two central defenders. Unai Emery seems to trust Lichtsteiner a lot so a chance for Carl Jenkinson looks unlikely at right-back. On the left, Sead Kolasinac is supposed to be the one but Emery might consider playing Nacho Monreal in the Huddersfield Vs Arsenal fixture, in case he wants to provide a more defensive cover.
Granit Xhaka is a doubt for the Huddersfield Vs Arsenal match after hurting his left groin. So, a 4-2-3-1 with Lucas Torreira and wonderkid Matteo Guendouzi in the midfield would make sense.
It is very difficult to understand Unai Emery’s treatment of both Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey. And it is even more difficult to predict who the Arsenal manager will play. But I think, Mesut Ozil, who failed to get a single minute against Manchester City might get the chance this time.
Latest On Arsenal:
Alexandre Lacazette will once again lead the Gunners’ attack. Aubameyang has been sick this week but will recover today ahead of the Huddersfield vs Arsenal game.
So on either sides of Mesut Ozil, will be the league’s second highest goalscorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and new boy Denis Suarez. The 24-year-old loan signing from Barcelona did not have the best of Premier League debuts against Manchester City. But he had extra training sessions this entire week, which points out at his potential inclusion in the starting line up.
Huddersfield are struggling a lot and only have 11 points so far. Survival looks difficult for them and so I predict Arsenal to score some goals and win 3-0 at a minimum.
