What Trueform says for Huddersfield vs Arsenal
Arsenal have only picked up one point from their last five Premier League away games, so we’re wary of taking short odds for them to win at Huddersfield.
The Terriers are cut adrift at the foot of the table and look doomed to relegation, but this isn’t the type of team to just throw in the towel.
Punters can get 27/20 for Town to avoid defeat and that is our opening Huddersfield vs Arsenal prediction.
A Look At Huddersfield Town’s Betting Odds
Huddersfield were ultimately put to the sword when going down 5-0 at Chelsea last Saturday, but new boss Jan Siewert saw reasons to be cheerful at Stamford Bridge.
Had Aaron Mooy’s sixth-minute header gone in, it would have changed the whole afternoon, while Town’s attackers provoked uncertainty among Chelsea’s defenders throughout.
Siewert said: “We were the ones who had the first chance. We were willing to play forward.
“We feel we created some good moments, but we have to be much more aggressive and willing to score. Sometimes we missed the moment of a shot or a pass.”
After losing 11 of their last 12 games, it is understandable for the Terriers to be low on confidence and self-belief.
However, getting Mooy back from injury is a huge boost and the hope is that loan signing Jason Puncheon will benefit from the Australian’s presence.
Looking at the Huddersfield vs Arsenal odds, we reckon 39/20 for Town to score first is fair value.
Last Huddersfield line-up: Lossl, Smith, Kongolo, Lowe, Schindler, Bacuna, Billing, Mooy, Mbenza, Kachunga, Diakhaby.
Huddersfield will be without winger Isaac Mbenza after he was ruled out for up to six weeks after tearing a calf muscle.
Chris Lowe is struggling with illness but Jonathan Hogg (back) and Erik Durm (foot) both returned to training this week and could be in contention. Danny Williams (knee) and Abdelhamid Sabiri (collarbone) remain sidelined.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal can be forgiven for succumbing to a 3-1 defeat at Manchester City, with Laurent Koscielny soon cancelling out Sergio Aguero’s quickfire opener but two more efforts from the Argentina ace proving decisive.
That result left the Gunners down in sixth place and goalkeeper Bernd Leno told the club’s website: “We win many games at home but I think to go into the top four again we need more away wins.”
Unai Emery’s side also had to travel to Liverpool in the current run of poor results on the road, but other reversals have been more damaging.
Arsenal were beaten at Southampton and West Ham and looked disjointed in a 1-1 draw at Brighton, so Huddersfield will see this as a chance to claim a notable scalp.
With Siewert trying hard to play up-tempo football, 13/5 for the hosts to score more than once is a speculative addition to our Huddersfield vs Arsenal betting tips.
Last Arsenal line-up: Leno, Koscielny, Lichtsteiner, Monreal, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Torreira, Iwobi, Guendouzi, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
Arsenal could welcome back Henrikh Mkhitaryan (foot), Granit Xhaka (groin) and Ainsley Maitland-Niles (knee), with all three back in full training after injuries.
January loan signing Denis Suarez is in line for his full debut, while Laurent Koscielny and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang should overcome illness to feature, but Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Danny Welbeck, Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding are all out.
Chelsea 5-0 HUDDERSFIELD
