So now we are aiming for our 21st ubeaten game in a row, and Arsenal fans are expecting a very easy time today against a Huddersfield side that are struggling to get out of the relegation zone.
The injuries are starting to pile up, and with Monreal and Ramsey still being doubts, and Mesut Ozil still in limbo with a bad back it was hard to choose a team from those available. Mavropanos is still out for a while along with Holding and Welbeck, but we can hope to see captain Laurent Koscielny in the squad for the first time this season.
So here is the team I predicted earlier….
Bellerin Sokratis Mustafi Kolasinac
Mhkitaryan Iwobi Aubameyang
And here is the team that has just been confirmed on Arsenal.com….
So the boss is sticking with 5 at the back, which seems to be his favoured line-up at the moment, but with Litchsteiner replacing Holding. I certainly don’t think that’s a bad idea, and it is great to see Monreal return as well, even if it is only on the bench….
This should be more than enough to over-run Huddersfield don’t you think?
