Arsenal will look to keep pace with the top four with a win over Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium this afternoon. 

Unai Emery has been hit by some issues ahead of the game with Pierre-Emerick Auabmeyang failing to recover from a heavy cold so the striker misses out while Mesut Ozil has also failed to make the trip due to illness.

Aaron Ramsey is ruled out with a minor knee problem while Granit Xhaka remains on the sidelines with a groin issue so youngsters Joe Willock and Eddie Nketiah are drafted in to the squad.

Laurent Koscielny starts in a back three alongside Shkodran Mustafi and Nacho Monreal with Ainsley Maitland-Niles returning from injury to start at right-back. Sead Kolasinac once again lines-up in the left wing-back role.

Matteo Guendouzi keeps his place in midfield alongside Lucas Torreira while Alex Iwobi is joined by the fit-again Henrikh Mkhitaryan in attack. Alexandre Lacazette leads the line up front with Denis Suarez named on the bench.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Huddersfield

Hamer, Smith, Jorgensen, Schindler, Kongolo, Mooy, Hogg, Bacuna, Puncheon, Kachunga, Diakhaby

Subs: Billing, Coleman, Ahearne-Grant, Depoitre, Pritchard, Stankovic, Durm

Arsenal

Leno, Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal, Maitland-Niles, Guendouzi, Torreira, Kolasinac, Iwobi, Lacazette, Mkhitaryan
