Huddersfield vs Arsenal
English Premier League
Date: Saturday, 9 February 2019
Kick-Off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: The John Smith’s Stadium (Huddersfield).
Huddersfield Town somehow managed to avoid the relegation scrap in the previous term of Premier League, but they find it super tough to stay competitive in the top flight football this time around.
The Terriers are almost certainly going to be dropped down to Championship next year as they sit at the very foot of the league ladder with a massive 13-point deficit to the safe zone and just 13 games left to play.
German manager Jan Siewert was appointed the new head coach after a 0-3 loss to Manchester City, but he failed to make an impact in his opening fixtures in charge. The Terriers fell 0-1 to Everton and 5-0 to Chelsea under Siewert.
The Terriers are on a horrendous thread of 12 losses and a draw in last 13 matches across competitions. They really find goals hard to come by as the team failed to find the back of the net at all in five consecutive games in all competitions.
Huddersfield vs Arsenal: Head-to-head
To make things worse for Huddersfield, they are about to play Arsenal who completely dominated this match-up in recent history.
The Gunners have won each of four head to head games since 2011.
Huddersfield scored only one goal in last four defeats to Arsenal.
Huddersfield vs Arsenal: Prediction
Unai Emery’s men will thus have a fantastic opportunity to rebound from a 3-1 defeat to reigning champions Manchester City. The loss saw them slide down to 6th in the Premier League standings meaning a win here against the rock-bottomed side is an imperative if the Gunners are to stay in race for the top-four finish and the Champions League football next season.
The visitors have league’s second top scorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in their ranks. Alexandre Lacazette also played very well in recent months and we can hardly see the Gunners slipping up here against the outfit which lost 12 of last 13 matches in all competitions. The away win is a huge banker at 1.61 odds.
