Arsenal vs Huddersfield betting tips: Premier League match preview & predictions

Arsenal vs Huddersfield prediction: Arsenal 4-1 Huddersfield

Arsenal will be disappointed to not have taken all three points at Old Trafford in midweek, but still come into Saturday’s game full of confidence.

Huddersfield have won just two of their last 19 Premier League matches and could be on the receiving end of a heavy defeat.

Arsenal will be looking to cap off an excellent week, following last weekend’s 4-2 win in the North London derby.

Arsenal vs Huddersfield: Who will win?

Arsenal are 1/4 favourites to win on Saturday while Huddersfield are 10/1. The draw is priced at 19/4.

The Gunners have scored at least two goals in 12 of their last 14 Premier League matches. Over 2.5 goals is 4/7

Only Fulham (0) have kept fewer clean sheets than Arsenal’s 2 this season. Back both teams to score at 1/1.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the leading scorer in the competition. He’s 21/10 to open the scoring and 1/2 to score anytime.

Arsenal vs Huddersfield Premier League match preview

Arsenal host Huddersfield Town at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday in matchweek 16 of the Premier League.

The Gunners extended their unbeaten run across all competitions to 20 matches on Wednesday night following their well earned 2-2 draw against Manchester United.

Having twice taken the lead, and had the better opportunities in the second half, Arsenal will feel they probably should’ve claimed their first Premier League win at Old Trafford since 2006.

Wednesday’s draw saw Arsenal slip outside the top four, two points behind Spurs.

Huddersfield were beaten 2-1 in their midweek clash at Bournemouth. After going 2-0 down, Terence Kongolo pulled one back for the Terriers but they were unable to complete the comeback in the second half.

David Wagner’s side begin the weekend one place and one point above the relegation zone. Following a run of three matches without defeat, the Terriers have now lost back-to-back matches.

Arsenal did the double over Huddersfield last season. Alexandre Lacazette, Olivier Giroud (2), Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil all scored in a 5-0 win at the Emirates. The Gunners also beat Huddersfield 1-0 in Arsene Wenger’s last ever match in charge of the club.

Arsenal team news vs Huddersfield

Rob Holding suffered a serious knee injury at Old Trafford. The full extent of the injury won’t be known until later in the week.

Holding’s injury could prompt Emery to revert back to a flat back four, although Stephen Lichtesteiner is more than capable of playing as a third centre back. 

Aaron Ramsey was forced off at the break against United after rolling his ankle. His injury is not thought to be serious but he remains a doubt for Saturday.

Following two games with the U23s, club captain Laurent Koscielny is targeting a return in next week’s Europa League game against Qarabag, as is Konstantinos Mavropanos.

Granit Xhaka returns from suspension and could replace Matteo Guendouzi in midfield.

Saturday’s game could come too soon for Nacho Monreal

Danny Welbeck remains a long-term absentee.

With first place wrapped up in Arsenal’s Europa League group, there’s no pressure on Unai Emery to rotate his side on Saturday.

Huddersfield team news vs Arsenal

Abdelhamid Sabiri suffered a broken collarbone in midweek which will require surgery. The Moroccan is expected to be sidelined for two months.

Steve Mounie and Philip Billing both miss out through suspension.

Terence Kongolo is available following a knock.
