Arsenal and Huddersfield Town go head-to-head at the Emirates Stadium as the hosts looking for a back-to-back Premier League win following a 4-2 victory over Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.
Unbeaten in their last 20 competitive encounters, Arsenal are flourishing this season under Unai Emery, as they currently sit fifth in the table with a ten points deficit to Manchester City. However, the Gunners have won just two out of their last six Premier League matches, while being held to four draws in the process, including a 2-2 stalemate with Manchester United in midweek. Moreover, the north London outfit has won just out of the previous five home games across all competitions, having failed to keep a clean sheet four times in the run. Still, the Gunners have been ruthless against teams currently in the bottom half of the table, securing four wins while playing out two draws in the process. What’s more, Aubameyang and his fellow teammates have scored a minimum of two goals in five out of eight home games this term, failing to hit the back of the net only against Manchester City thus far.
Meanwhile, the visitors come into this encounter following back-to-back Premier League losses to Brighton and Bournemouth, with both matches ending with the identical 2-1 scoreline in their opponents’ favor. Residing one of the worst away teams in the English top flight, the Terriers have lost four out of seven road clashes this campaign, outplaying Wolverhampton in the run. With 26 goals conceded so far, David Wagner’s men have the fourth-worst defensive record in the Premier League. Additionally, they have failed to keep a clean sheet in seven out of eight competitive matches away from home this term, conceding a minimum of two goals five times in the process.
