Arsenal play against Huddersfield Town on Saturday at the Emirates for their 16th game in the Premier League. Their last fixture against Manchester United ended in a stalemate with both the teams scrambling both their goals very. Arsenal are now unbeaten in 20 games across all competitions and will be looking to host 17th placed Huddersfield Town next, who are on the brink of elimination.
With almost 20 more games remaining this season, Arsenal will be looking forward to replicate the results as they have been doing the past several weeks. Unai Emery is eyeing a Champions League spot next season naturally and games such as a next play a vital part in helping the team get there.
Emery has transformed the earlier Arsenal squad into an arsenal of sorts. As the star strikers Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette have been sparkling on the field with Emery playing them according to the match situations and what the game demands.
Goalkeeper : Bernd Leno
Leno has been influential the past two games, by pulling out a lot of acrobatic saves. He disapproved the freekick by Marcos Rojo but was unlucky to concede the goal by Anthony Martial even though the ball managed to roll past two Arsenal players as it made way to the French national.
Defenders : Stephan Lichsteiner, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Shkodran Mustafi
Rob Holding and Mustafi have been in great form in the recent matches. Mustafi also opened the scoring last game which means he is a potential threat at the front and even at the back. But as Holding has suffered an injury, it will most likely fall on Lichsteiner to take his place.
Sokratis will be looking to build a wall at the back vs huddersfield town as both, Lichtsteiner and Mustafi will be looking to spread out by the wings.

Midfielders : Sead Kolasinac, Lucas Torreira, Granit Xhaka, Matteo Guendouzi, Hector Bellerin
Kolasinac is currently the most threatening marksman on the pitch as he infiltrates the defence through his pace and cuts in to deliver sumptuous crosses.
Torreira will be looking to reproduce the same work he did against Tottenham to win the Man of the Match award. His ball control skills and vision have amplified under the current gaffer, Unai Emery and will look to continue with the same vs Huddersfield town.
Xhaka has to take the initiative on the pitch to become the Captain and lead the team against Huddersfield town with his heroics and physique.
Guendouzi’s intent to chase the ball after possession is lost is magnificent. His drive and spirit of the game never seems to fade with his determination playing a key factor in gaining possession.
Bellerin’s pace makes him one of the most sought after players in the League and this has motivated him to display better performances than previous seasons. He can develop into a world class defender if he is trained well and will naturally look to prove his worth against Huddersfield town once again.

Attackers : Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, Alex Iwobi
Aubameyang is the League’s top scorer with 10 goals to his name. He has unlocked his potential and is set to become a legend at the club if he continues scoring at this rate.
Iwobi will look to provide skill-full support to Aubameyang up front against Huddersfield town during counter attack situations and can be a ruthless finisher too.
