Emery wants Arsenal players to seek immediate cure for travel sickness

But the fixture list has been kind to the Spaniard and three points at Huddersfield would keep sixth placed Arsenal in contention for a top four finish.

Arsenal's hosts over the weekend, Huddersfield, are not looking anywhere close to getting back into their rhythm and break out of the relegation zone anytime soon. However, the likes of Abdelhamid Sabiri and Danny Wiliams remain out, along with Isaac Mbenza, who is out for six weeks after tearing a calf muscle. Konstantinos Mavropanos has been left out of the Europa League squad and has not convinced Emery of his qualities as yet.

"His adaptation to us and also on Sunday in 25 minutes, in the first days with us, is not with good performance", Emery said.

With just 17 away wins out of the 50 games played since August 2016, the issue has been something Emery would have been keen to resolve when he replaced Arsene Wenger.

But he is short of match sharpness, having struggled to earn a regular place in Ernesto Valverde's team at the Nou Camp in the first half of the season.

Arsenal have no suspended players for this match.

In attack, Arsenal could welcome back Henrikh Mkhitaryan after a foot injury has seen him not play for more than a month.


Maurizio Sarri's men haven't had the best time in recent outings in the Premier League and their 4-0 defeat against Bournemouth away from home led to a lot of criticism of the manager and the players.

Huddersfield have won just one of their last 16 home games in all competitions against Arsenal (D8 L7).

Huddersfield meanwhile are battling for their Premier League lives having picked up a total of only 11 points this season.

Lacazette on the rise.

It was another weekend filled with spectacular goals and important results in the Premier League.

Torreira, though, is sad that The Gunners, who have failed to qualify for Europe's premier club competition for the past two seasons, are again now off the pace in the battle for a top-four Premier League finish. In the end, all things point towards three points for the Gunners.
