Wednesday evening’s Premier League action from the Emirates Stadium sees Arsenal take on Huddersfield Town.

Arsene Wenger’s side moved back in to the top four after securing a late win against Burnley on Sunday afternoon, and they could create more space between themselves and North London rivals Tottenham Hotspur with another victory here after Mauricio Pochettino’s side lost to Leicester City on Tuesday evening.

They could even move up to third place should they get a better result than champions Chelsea, who host struggling Swansea City.

Mesut Ozil could return after missing the trip to Turf Moor through illness, with Jack Wilshere also expeced to be available though Alex Iwobi is a doubt after suffering a dead leg last time out.

Alexandre Lacazette is favourite to open the scoring at 4.0 (3/1) with Bet 365, with Alexis Sanchez a 3.1 (31/10) chance with Unibet.

Unibet have the home win priced at 1.21 (3/14) and the draw at 7.6 (33/5) with the visitors as highly priced as the 18.0 (17/1) on offer from Betfair.

David Wagner’s side led leaders Manchester City on Sunday afternoon only to eventually lose by two goals to one.

That result was their third loss in four games and left them just four points above the bottom three though a return to winning ways here could see them climb into the top half.

Rajiv La Parra will miss the game after being sent off at the weekend while Kasey Palmer and Philip Billing remain sidelined though Steve Mounie could start for the first time in two months.

Mounie is 15.0 (14/1) to get the first goal of the game with Sporting Bet, with Laurent Depoitre a 19.0 (18/1) chance with Bet 365.

This is the first league meeting between the sides in over forty-five years, though they did meet in the FA Cup fourth round at the Emirates back in January 2011, with Laurent Koscielny the only member of either squad who started the 2-1 home win.

You can back both teams to score this time around at a price of 2.35 (27/20) with Sporting Bet.
