Unai Emery admits Arsenal are underdogs for Premier League top four

Unai Emery admits Arsenal are underdogs for Premier League top four

But the fixture list has been kind to the Spaniard and three points at Huddersfield would keep sixth placed Arsenal in contention for a top four finish.

Likewise, Erik Durm should be back this weekend after a foot injury.

Forward Isaac Mbenza has been ruled out for five to six weeks with a calf injury. The German is back in training though, although there could be significant doubts with Emery including him in the starting lineup especially when there are upcoming Europa League games next week.

"We know it's not going to be easy, that's for sure, because we are up against some great teams such as Chelsea and Manchester United but we need to try and stand firm as a team and battle in every game".

Denis Suarez came on as a substitute against Man City but the new arrival should make his first team start during the Huddersfield vs Arsenal game. He earned the possibility to take minutes in the first XI'.

Arsenal have no suspended players for this match.

And asked what the worst ground he ever played on was, Keown revealed: "Back in the day plenty of pitches were awful!"

According to reports , they have put a £100m price tag on Hazard in a bid to ward off Real's interest. I still have a year of my contract.

The loss at City saw Arsenal outplayed for much of the contest, with some supporters taking to social media to criticise the team - as well as Emery's tactics.

Huddersfield have won just one of their last 16 home games in all competitions against Arsenal (D8 L7).

"Stephan Lichtsteiner is not good enough", Carragher said after the game.

Of his nine goals so far in the Premier League seven have been winners, and the Frenchman is only behind Mo Salah in that number.

Torreira, though, is sad that The Gunners, who have failed to qualify for Europe's premier club competition for the past two seasons, are again now off the pace in the battle for a top-four Premier League finish. There seems to be no chance whatsoever, at least on paper that suggests Huddersfield might be able to stage an upset against Arsenal.

Arsenal midfielder, Lucas Torreira, has disclosed the Gunners' target this season.
