Arsenal will be aiming to get back to winning ways when they face bottom side Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium this Saturday.
The Gunners were taught a footballing lesson last weekend at the Etihad when Manchester City showed their superiority in all departments.
Now, Unai Emery’s men must regroup from that and look to win games. They are currently sixth in the table, but only three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
Hence, a chance to finish in the top four is not out of sight for the North London side.
Arsenal are against the relegation strugglers Huddersfield, who will give their everything to cling on to something going into the final phase of the season.
In terms of injury updates, Emery confirmed that Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Ainsley-Maitland Niles could feature. Denis Suarez may take more time before he gets ready to start games.
Sokratis is expected to be back by the end of this month.
Here’s how we think the manager could line his team up tomorrow:
GK: Bernd Leno
He is the first-choice keeper in the team and is expected to start every league game.
RB: Carl Jenkinson
Stephan Lichtsteiner had the worst time against Raheem Sterling last Sunday. We predict that Jenkinson will be getting a chance to prove himself.
CB: Shkodran Mustafi
He has had lower back issues, but the German has kept on playing games. We expect him to do the same this weekend.
CB: Laurent Koscielny
The good news for the Gunners is that Koscielny is slowly returning to full match fitness. At the moment, the more he plays, the better he is performing.
LB: Nacho Monreal
Monreal is a better natural left-back than Sead Kolasinac. The latter is stronger as a wing-back.
CM: Matteo Guendouzi
He was one of Arsenal’s best players in midfield against City. The teenager is expected to keep his place in the team for this game.
CM: Lucas Torreira
His energy in midfield will help the team to dominate the Terriers this Saturday.
CAM: Mesut Ozil
This would be a perfect game for the German to come in and stamp his creative magic. Huddersfield are expected to sit deep, hence, Ozil’s vision will be key.
RW: Henrikh Mkhitaryan
As confirmed by the manager, Mkhitaryan is expected to feature this weekend. He might as well start and play for an hour to regain match fitness.
LW: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
He is one of the top scorers in the league. The Gabonese international will be aiming to increase his tally this Saturday.
ST: Alexandre Lacazette
The Frenchman is predicted to keep his place as a central striker in the team.
