Huddersfield News and Form

Can Huddersfield make up a 14 point gap between themselves and safety over the remaining 13 league fixtures of the season? It is highly unlikely but never say never. The Terriers suffered their third straight Premier League defeat as they were crushed 5-0 at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea last weekend. In total, the Terriers have collected just one point from their last 12 Premier League fixtures now. They will be looking for just their second home win of the season (D2 L10) and also they will be trying to snap a six-match losing streak that they are currently on at the John Smith’s stadium. Huddersfield have not earned a clean sheet in any of their last seven league home games.

It really is hard to find any kind of positive in the stats for Huddersfield this season. Across their 13 home games played they have only scored five goals in total. Only 38% of Huddersfield home games this season have made it over 2.5 goals. Across their last six league games, home and away combined, Huddersfield have managed to score just the one goal. Of five home goals which they have scored this season, four of them have been in the first-half of fixtures. Frankly, if they were to turn this around and pull off some survival act, it would be one of the most remarkable of all time.

Arsenal News and Form

Arsenal, who have been weakened at the back through injuries, couldn’t withstand a trip to Manchester City last weekend, the Gunners losing 3-1. So while they continue to be brilliant at home, they continue to be very fragile on their travels. Arsenal have lost their last three league away games, those defeats coming against Liverpool, West Ham and then Manchester City. Overall this season Arsenal’s away record reads W4 D3 L5 and they have earned only two points from their last 18 available away from the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal are still waiting for their first clean sheet of the season away from home, will it happen at Huddersfield? Arsenal have conceded a total of 25 goals on their travels, but then to their credit, they have scored freely as well. Arsenal have scored 23 goals in their 12 away fixtures. 83% of  Arsena’ls away games have ended up over 2.5 goals. Both teams have scored in 92% of Arsenal’s away games. All but one of the four away victories that Arsenal have picked up this season in the league have been by a one-goal margin. Arsenal’s half time away record is W0 D8 L4.
