The outsider in the Premier League Huddersfield Town welcomes Arsenal in a game from the 26th round of the Premier League. Let’s take a look at this fixture.
For Huddersfield Town there is no more hope that they can survive this season. At this moment they are 20th in the league standings, trailing on 13 points behind the 17th Burnley and the safe zone. How you can see, they would need a miracle to survive. And miracles do not happen very often.
In their last five games Huddersfield Town suffered four defeats and won just one point during the 0-0 draw with Cardiff City. They have won just 2 matches since the beginning of the campaign. As it goes right now, they could finish the season as one of the weakest team in the history of the Premier League.
Huddersfield’s last game was another nightmare. Jan Siewert’s boys suffered a 0-5 defeat during the visit to Chelsea. But we doubt that anyone was really surprised of what happened at the Stamford Bridge.
Arsenal on the other hand are fighting for a Top 4 finish and a qualification to the Champions League. Right now the Gunners are 6th in the league with 47 points, having a record of 14 wins, 5 draws and 6 defeats. In their last five matches Unai Emery’s boys won three times, but also suffered two defeats. Right now Arsenal are 3 points behind the 4th Arsenal and the Top 4.
In their last game the Gunners suffered a 1-3 defeat during the visit to the champion Manchester City. Laurent Koscielny scored Arsenal’s only goal in the game, but City prevailed with a fantastic hattrick from their star striker Sergio Aguero.
Arsenal are the clear favourite against Huddersfield Town. We highly doubt that they can make a mistake against this opponent.
