As odd as it sounds, Arsene Wenger will lead the Gunners for the last time this Sunday against Huddersfield Town. The French manager spent 22 years in charge in North London and there are no doubts he’ll want a victorious farewell from the bench of his beloved club when Arsenal play Huddersfield Town away at The John Smith’s Stadium.
We can expect an enthusiastic atmosphere in the stands as the Terries managed to fight their way to survival in the top flight after joining the elite last year from the Championship. David Wagner has reasons to be proud of the job he has done with this side who will come into the final day clash high on confidence after holding the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea to draws away from home in last two rounds. Can they complete the season with a success against another league heavyweight?
Huddersfield vs Arsenal: Head-to-head (h2h mutual matches)
Arsenal destroyed the Terriers 5-0 at Emirates Stadium when the teams took on each other in the first league clash since the 1971/72 campaign.
They locked horns in the FA Cup back in 2011 in between these matches and Arsenal took a 2-1 win then.
Overall, the Gunners leaf the head to head tie by 13 wins ahead of 63rd meeting with Huddersfield.
Huddersfield vs Arsenal: Prediction
We began with the preview with the sentence “as odd as it sounds”, and we’ll finish it up in the same fashion, stating that the Gunners lost seven on the trot away from home in the Premier League. That’s one of the weakest runs in Arsene Wenger’s reign and the whole football public in England would kind of want to see the kind Frenchman leave the competition with a victory here.
The mentioned away record will not be of help. Furthermore, Arsenal will be without the likes of Mesut Ozil, Laurent Koscielny and Mohamed Elneny here. Jack Wilshere is also expected to miss the match on the final day because of private reasons, while the good news is that the French striker Alexandre Lacazette could return to the starting lineup after coming only from the bench in the mid-week’s away loss to Leicester City.
The value is definitely with the Terriers not to lose at 2.40 since they held the likes of Man City and Chelsea to draws in last wto lewague games. The hosts will tend to keeo it tighta t the back, just what they did against the mentioned top-five sides and we will alternatively take the Under 2-5 goals FT bet at 2.50.
