John Smith’s Stadium – Premier League
This Huddersfield vs Arsenal prediction takes us to the John Smith’s Stadium where the Terriers are starting to look as though their fate may be sealed. The atmosphere will be bouncing for the visit of the Gunners in this Premier League preview though, as Unai Emery’s team look to put their defeat at Manchester City behind them.

Huddersfield are yet to score a Premier League goal against Arsenal and have struggled to hit the back of the net all season. That’s why we’re backing against both teams scoring at 11/10 with Betfair as part of the best football betting tips for this game. Arsenal are 15/8 to win to nil with the same bookmaker, and 15/2 to win 2-0.
Arsenal to win to nil
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has 15 Premier League goals to his name so far this season. That’s two more than Huddersfield have managed in total. The Gabon striker broke the deadlock in last season’s corresponding fixture, and is 10/3 with Betway to do the same this weekend. He is evens with the same bookie in the anytime market, and 20/1 to get the first goal in a 2-0 Arsenal win.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score first
Arsenal have been poor away from home over the last year or so. They’ve lost 12 Premier League matches on the road since the start of 2018. Only Brighton and Huddersfield have lost more. The Terriers meanwhile haven’t managed to score a goal in their three Premier League meetings with Arsenal. They’re also only averaging 0.5 goals per game this season. If the Terriers are going to get a shock win here, a tight 1-0 looks like one of the likeliest football score predictions. It’s priced at 16/1 with bet365, rising to 85/1 if you add Steve Mounie as the goalscorer.

Team news and form
Last six: LLDLLL
Isaac Mbenza is a doubt for these Huddersfield vs Arsenal predictions after going off in the first half of the Terriers’ defeat against Chelsea last weekend. Jonathan Hogg is rated at 50/50 due to a back injury, while Abdelhamid Sabiri and Danny Williams are both out. Aaron Mooy made his first start since early December at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, playing the full 90 minutes. New Terriers boss Jan Siewert needs the Australian playmaker to hit top form immediately.
Last six: WLWLWL
Laurent Koscielny was fit to face Man City on Sunday, which was good news for Unai Emery in the face of his defensive injury nightmare. Sokratis is out for another couple of weeks, while Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding are long-term absentees. Shkodran Mustafi is a doubt for this weekend with a lower back problem, which could mean a start for the man who replaced him at the Etihad at the weekend, Konstantinos Mavropanos. Granit Xhaka missed the trip to Manchester with a tight groin, and is a doubt for this game too.
Huddersfield vs Arsenal prediction, preview and betting tips
Arsenal are coming into this game looking for their fourth successive Premier League victory over Huddersfield. The Terriers haven’t scored against the Gunners since their return to the top flight last season, and goals have been a major problem for them all season.
Keeping them out has been the problem for the Gunners, who’ve conceded 36 Premier League goals coming into these football predictions. No team in the division’s top nine has let in more. Only seven clubs in the league have conceded more. However, Huddersfield have by far the worst attacking record in the league.
The Terriers have only scored 13 times this season, eight fewer than Newcastle who have the second-worst record. They haven’t hit the back of the net in their last five matches, including the FA Cup defeat to Bristol City. In the Premier League, only Man City and Liverpool have scored more than Arsenal.
Both teams are coming into this Huddersfield v Arsenal prediction on the back of defeats at the weekend. Chelsea thumped the Terriers 5-0 at Stamford Bridge, while the Gunners were outclassed by City in losing 3-1 at the Etihad.
With reports of a tiny war chest for Unai Emery when it comes to the summer transfer window hitting the news this week, Arsenal’s current crop of players need to step up. The battle to finish in the top four between them, Chelsea and Manchester United is going to be fierce, and Champions League money is vital for their progress in the coming seasons.
This would appear to be the ideal opponent for Arsenal, and one they’ve beaten by an aggregate score of 7-0 in three games from this season and last. That’s why we’re backing the Gunners to beat the Terriers to nil in your Huddersfield vs Arsenal betting tips.
Huddersfield have been losing at both half-time and full-time in their last three games, and the same bet here’s 29/20. Ten of Arsenal’s last 12 away games have seen over 2.5 goals, with the Gunners priced at 11/8 with Betfair to win with over 2.5 goals in the match.
Huddersfield vs Arsenal first goalscorer predictions
Alexandre Lacazette opened the scoring for Arsenal as they beat Huddersfield 5-0 at the Emirates last season. The French striker has nine Premier League goals so far this season, and is 4/1 to reach double figures with the opener in this game. Steve Mounie became the first Huddersfield striker to score all season in their first game of 2019. He hasn’t added to that since, but he’s still getting himself into decent positions and has first goalscorer odds of 11/1.
