Arsenal have won their last two league games, and they will be eager to continue the run when they host Premier League newboys Huddersfield Town at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday.
The Gunners needed an extra-time Alexis Sanchez penalty to defeat Burnley 1-0 on Sunday, but that win took them to the fourth spot on the table. The Gunners have a perfect home record this season, and in their last home game, they claimed a commendable 2-0 win in the North London derby. Considering Gunners’ home form, we don’t see anything other a comfortable home win in this fixture.
The Terriers will come into the game on the back of two consecutive defeats. They managed to give leaders Manchester City a scare on Sunday, but eventually, the Citizens claimed a 2-1 win in the game.
David Wagner’s side is currently placed 11th on the table with 15 points from their 13 games. The Terriers have struggled to score goals, and behind the bottom-two sides, they have the worst attack in the league with nine goals.
Both sides haven’t faced each other in a league game since the 1971-72 season. In their last competitive meeting, both sides played each other in FA Cup 2010-11, and the Gunners claimed a 2-1 win in the game.
