Arsenal will look to extend their unbeaten run in all competitions to 21 games when they face Huddersfield at the Emirates on Saturday.

The Gunners’ draw at Manchester United in midweek maintained the impressive streak although they slipped to fifth in the table following Tottenham’s win over Southampton.

Unai Emery has a number of issues, with Rob Holding definitely absent, having suffered an ACL injury at Old Trafford, while Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey face late fitness tests.

One player who could feature is Laurent Koscielny who hasn’t played for Arsenal since May. Having played two matches for the Under 23s in the last fortnight, Emery has said there is a good chance the French international will be in the squad.

Huddersfield head to London will a number of key absentees as well. David Wagner has revealed that midfielder Abdelhamid Sabiri is out for eight weeks after breaking his collarbone.

The Terriers are also without the suspended duo of Philip Billing and Steve Mounie although Wagner has revealed Chris Lowe is available, while Terence Kongolo has returned to training and could also feature.

Arsenal did the double over Huddersfield last season, including a 5-0 win in this fixture, and it’s also worth noting the Gunners have won their last nine home games that have kicked off at 3pm on a Saturday.
