Arsenal vs Huddersfield: TV channel, stream, kick-off time, odds & match preview

Comments
The Gunners find themselves in a decent position ahead of the hectic festive period of fixtures and they can improve that with victory

Arsenal have the chance to potentially move up to third in the Premier League when they take on Huddersfield Town at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday evening.

Arsene Wenger's side come into the game having snatched a late victory over Burnley in their last outing, a result which saw them leapfrog Tottenham into fourth, and they will be keen to continue their ascent with a win against the Terriers.

That will, however, depend on the result of Chelsea's game against Swansea, which takes place across London at the same time.

GAME PREVIEW


Arsene Wenger Arsenal 2017

Despite some early-season wobbles, Arsenal have forced their way into the top four ahead of the busy festive period and could find themselves breathing down the neck of Manchester United ahead of their clash this coming weekend.

Wenger's side managed to claim three points away to Burnley at the weekend despite a below-par performance and the players will no doubt be buoyed by the prospect of clawing their way back into the title race.

However, beating Huddersfield will not necessarily be a straightforward task, as league leaders Manchester City found last week and Man United found to their detriment when they lost back in October.

David Wagner's recently promoted team have upped their game against more vaunted opponents this season and the Gunners will have to be on their guard against complacency if they are to secure victory.

A win will push them to within four points of the Red Devils, which will make their upcoming meeting at the Emirates this Saturday all the more interesting.
