Arsenal v Huddersfield Predictions and Preview
Emery's Gunners continued their fantastic run of form with a battling 2-2 draw against Manchester United in their midweek clash, as the sit outside the top on goal difference.
Huddersfield, who are just a point outside the relegation zone, have lost their last two games - against Brighton and Bournemouth - are struggling to get any sort of form together in recent weeks, which will be of real concern for their manager ahead of a tough run of games over the festive period.
Given the consistency of Arsenal under their new manager this season, they look a different proposition in these types of games, but there is still value available for a home win - priced at 3/10.
However, Huddersfield have been rugged in defence in recent weeks, and they will not make it easy for their hosts, based on their record of conceding two goals in their last three games.
With that in mind, an Arsenal win with under 2.5 goals scored in total comes in at 11/4.
Arsenal to win 2-0 at 7/1
Emery will be determined to keep Arsenal's run going, following their strong showings in their last two games against Tottenham and Manchester United, and there is no room for error as they chase a return to the top four and Champions League football for next season.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score first at 21/10
Aubbameyang is the Premier League's leading scorer with 10 goals so far 2018-19, although he was unable to add to his tally against United in midweek. However he has been very consistent this season, and he should be a real threat to the Huddersfield defence on Saturday.
