Team News :
Huddersfield will be without Isaac Mbenza for their home game against Arsenal after the winger was ruled out for up to six weeks. Mbenza tore a calf muscle during last week's 5-0 defeat at Chelsea, while defender Chris Lowe is struggling with illness.
Midfielder Jonathan Hogg (back) and defender Erik Durm (foot) both returned to training this week and could be in contention.
Striker Karlan Grant is hoping to make his full debut after stepping off the bench at Stamford Bridge. Danny Williams (knee) and Abelhamid Sabiri (collarbone) remain sidelined.
Meanwhile, Emery revealed captain Laurent Koscielny and top goalscorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both missed a day's training this week though illness - but believes both will be fit to travel to West Yorkshire.
Shkodran Mustafi is also expected to be fit for the trip to Huddersfield. The German defender limped out of Sunday's defeat at City but returned to full training without any issues.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan could return to the squad following a metatarsal fracture after playing 45 minutes for the U23s on Monday night but Granit Xhaka is still a doubt due to a groin problem.
Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Danny Welbeck remain long-term absentees.
Opta stats
Huddersfield are winless in 11 competitive matches against Arsenal (D2 L9), since a 2-1 victory in January 1971. They have won just one of their last 16 home games in all competitions against Arsenal (D8 L7). Huddersfield have also lost their last six Premier League home games. The last team to lose more in a row at home in the competition were Wolves in April 2012 (nine in a row).
Arsenal have won their opening three games against Huddersfield in the Premier League - only against Watford (7), Reading (6), Wolves (6), Wigan (5), Cardiff (4) and Fulham (4) have they won their first four or more vs an opponent in the competition.
Huddersfield have scored just five goals in their 13 home Premier League games this season. In top-flight history, only Arsenal in 1912-13 have ever scored as few at this stage of a campaign (also 5), while no team has ever gone the whole season without reaching double figures for goals at home.
Arsenal are the only team yet to keep an away clean sheet in the Premier League this season, with their last shutout on the road coming at Huddersfield on the final day of the 2017-18 campaign (1-0).
The Gunners are winless in their last six Premier League away games (D2 L4), losing the last three in a row. Having scored at least twice in their first eight games on the road this season, the Gunners haven't netted more than once in their last four.
Huddersfield are winless in their last 12 league games (D1 L11), the longest current run in the top four tiers of English football.

I'm going to go for Arsenal, but I would not be shocked if they did not win because defensively, Arsenal are just not good enough
