Win at Huddersfield was all that mattered for Arsenal 0

Posted on February 10, 2019 by David Nugent

In all honesty, Arsenal’s 2-1 win at Huddersfield on Saturday was not all that convincing. If the Terriers would have had slightly more quality they really could have got something from the game. It was the story of Huddersfield’s season, as they toiled but lacked a cutting edge in attack to really trouble the Arsenal defence. On another day, Arsenal could have suffered another disappointing away day.

All that mattered was three points

In the end, all that mattered was that the Gunners ending a six-game winless run on their travels that dated back to November. Arsenal have put in some truly lacklustre displays on their travels of late, so to record a victory in Yorkshire has at least stopped the rot when it comes to poor away results.

Surely Arsenal won’t slip up at Huddersfield 0

Arsenal are a real Jekyll and Hyde team. At home, they are hard to beat, prolific and a formidable opposition for most teams in the top-flight. However, on their travels, they turn into this team that struggle to pick up points.

Unai Emery’s side have picked up just two points from their last six away games in the Premier League while suffering defeats in four of their five matches away from north London.

Huddersfield should be the perfect opponent

That recent away record is poor for a team claiming to have top four aspirations. However, a trip to struggling Huddersfield later today could just prove the perfect tonic for the travel sick Gunners.

On Saturday afternoon, Huddersfield host Arsenal at the John Smiths Stadium, as the Gunners look to get their challenge for a top-four spot back on track.

Huddersfield are rock bottom of the Premier League table, 13 points away from safety and now destined for a return to the Championship. The Terriers are winless in 12 Premier League games, having suffered 11 defeats in the process.

The arrival of German boss Jan Siewert has done little to stop the rot, as last time out Town suffered a 5-0 defeat at Chelsea. One of the home side’s biggest problems of late has been their inability to find the net, as they have failed to score in five of their last six league games, including their last four matches.

The importance of Huddersfield 0

Every single game of football that Arsenal Football Club play, in a competitive sense, is important. It gives fans who may be going to their first game a chance to see the Gunners triumph, and in equal measure, it may allow for a 40-year season ticket holder to keep his passion for the club alive and well. Of course, that’s an obvious statement, but it needs to be repeated because some would argue the game at the weekend isn’t quite as important as the ones against the club’s rivals.

Arsenal’s away record is a big concern 0

Arsenal suffered a 3-1 defeat at Premier League champions 3-1 at Etihad Stadium on Sunday. The result was not a shocking one considering the Citizens are formidable at home and Arsenal are poor travels. The defeat at City is understandable, but the fact that the Gunners have now lost four of their last five away matches in the top-flight is concerning.

Away form was a concern prior to Unai Emery’s appointment

To be fair to Gunners boss Unai Emery, the team’s away form has been a concern for a good while now. In fact, the team from north London have won just five times in 21 games on their travels in the top-flight.

Arsenal’s next big six – Part 2 0

Cardiff (H)

They’ve just got to win this and there are no two ways about it. Cardiff have surprised a lot of people so far this season as they’re still right in the hunt for survival, and we’re anticipating them giving Arsenal a really tough game in this one. Unfortunately for Bluebirds fans that isn’t quite going to be enough, especially considering that Arsenal are much, much stronger at home than they are away from home. It’s going to be closer than a lot of fans would like, but they’ll manage to get the job done.

Lacazette and Aubameyang – Why didn’t it work? 0

Arsenal booked fresh three points on Saturday by beating Huddersfield Town 1-0 at the Emirates.

However, even though they’ve now taken their unbeaten run to 21 games in all competitions, the fact that Lucas Torreira needed to step up and produce a moment of brilliance seven minutes from time against an opponent like Huddersfield points to a few issues up front. Let’s take a look at what happened.

Manager Unai Emery started the game with both Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the pitch, and Matteo Guendouzi nearest behind them. Torreira and Granit Xhaka provided the protection ahead of the back three, flanked by Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolašinac pushing up as wing-backs.

Another slow start for Arsenal 0

Arsenal are now 21 games unbeaten in all competitions after Saturday’s 1-0 home win over Huddersfield at the Emirates Stadium. As with most Gunners games this season there were good and not so good points.

One of the good points was that Unai Emery’s team recorded a win and keep up in the race for a top spot. The fact that Uruguayan midfielder Lucas Torreira also had a big effect on another game was a big positive.

Some negatives

Huddersfield obviously came to park the bus, with a ridiculous number of niggling fouls in the first half. Referee Paul Tierney never really had control of the game and the visitors took advantage of his inexperience at Premier League level.

Could Emery bench Aubameyang against Huddersfield? 0

Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been in superb form of late for the Gunners. In fact, since his move from Dortmund in the January transfer window, he has impressed in front of goal.

The Gabon striker’s form has attracted the interest of many people, including Fantasy Football enthusiasts, such as myself. With a home game against Huddersfield this afternoon, the striker looks to be set to record a big haul.

Could Aubameyang be rested against Huddersfield?

We are heading into a busy period of the Premier League campaign when top-flight bosses look to rest and rotate their squads. French forward Alexandre Lacazette has started the last two games on the bench.

On Saturday afternoon, Arsenal will be confident of continuing their 20-game unbeaten run in all competitions, as the Gunners host struggling Huddersfield at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners continued their recent promising form by recording a 2-2 draw at Manchester United. United may be unconvincing form, but they still have a good record at Old Trafford, so it may be considered a decent result with time.

Arsenal have had a habit of drawing league games of late, though, as the team from north London have drawn four of their last six games in the Premier League.
