Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Manchester United on Wednesday evening extended the Gunners’ unbeaten run to twenty games across all competitions and we don’t envisage this streak coming under too much pressure at the Emirates Stadium this weekend. Unai Emery’s men haven’t lost a single match since the start of the season when they lost back-to-back outings against Man City and Chelsea, however they have what should prove to be a couple of relatively straightforward matches ahead of them when they lock horns with Huddersfield Town in the Premier League followed by a Europa League meeting with Qarabag just a few days later. As such there’s every likelihood that the Gunners will have gone 22 games without defeat when they line up against Southampton on December 16th.
Arsenal eased past two massive games with a 4-2 win over arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur and a 2-2 draw with Manchester United over the past few days, however injuries to Aaron Ramsey and Rob Holding in the latter match are a cause for concern. Nevertheless we don’t envisage too many problems heading Arsenal’s way this weekend when the Terriers come to town, the bookmakers giving away free bets on Arsenal v Huddersfield Town.
Huddersfield Town have suffered a couple of 2-1 defeats over the past few days although their cause certainly wasn’t helped when they were reduced to ten men after Steve Mounie was sent-off in the meeting with Brighton & Hove Albion. The Terriers have shown signs of improvement following a disastrous start to the season however and while we don’t expect them to manage anything from from their weekend trip to the Emirates Stadium, we certainly don’t envisage them being embarrassed on Saturday, Coral Bookmakers going 29/10 on Arsenal to win and under 2.5 total goals.
