Arsene Wenger will be managing Arsenal for one final time when they face Huddersfield Town in the Premier League this weekend. The Gunners have failed to secure a single point on the road in 2018 but they have their last chance to erase this streak this season in the manager’s farewell game.
Petr Cech has been the Gunners’ first-choice for the league duties this term and the 35-year-old should retain his position between the sticks.
In defence, Wenger should call upon regulars Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal for the right and left-back spots respectively whilst Calum Chambers is a likely contender to start alongside Shkodran Mustafi at the heart of the backline.
In midfield, there may not be any changes from the Leicester defeat with Granit Xhaka, Alex Iwobi and Aaron Ramsey keeping their places. Jack Wilshere has recently been absent owing to the birth of his daughter and it is unclear whether he would make the matchday squad.
Further forward, Alexandre Lacazette should return to the mix after being rested for the midweek game. The Frenchman is likely to lead the line with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan partnering him on the left and right side of the attack.
Huddersfield are likely to play with freedom after securing their league status in midweek and this may present goals for either side. Arsenal have not looked like winning on the road in 2018 and a draw would probably not be a bad result to erase the losing run.
Huddersfield Town 2-2 Arsenal
