Arsenal vs Huddersfield : The Match Preview

The Emirates

It has been an eventful week at Arsenal with news, team selection, squad role and transfers been the major talking point. At the press conference on Friday , Arsene Wenger had a lot to tell the members of the press present.

First off was the news of returning players from injury with the likes of Squillaci Diaby and Almunia coming back to take their places in the squad for the FA Cup clash. And speaking of Almunia, Le Boss has challenged him to win his place back in the team and this was after dropping the news that Szczesny is now our number one choice between the sticks. Not in his dreams did the boy think his rise at Arsenal would be of meteoric proportions but take nothing away from his performances, he’s been great and his huge frame does our defenders a lot of good and they seem to play with ease and comfort knowing they have a solid pair of gloves behind them.

We all know Almunia’s time is up and come summer, he’ll probably be shipped away to some dead beat club. Then came the news of Carlos Vela moving on loan to West Brom for the rest of the season. This is one move I support strongly seeing as I had been praying he would go on loan when he joined us 3 years ago, and my preferred destination for him then was West Brom. It didn’t happen then but am glad it has now.

He’s too good to be on the bench and maybe a relegation threatened team might be the ideal tonic for him. I foresee a great combo of him and Nigerian Odemwinge. If only we could loan Denilson and make sure its a permanent loan away from the club. Oh well.

Moving on to the matter at hand, our opponents tomorrow, Huddersfield are third in League One and gunning for promotion under Lee Clark. They have lost only once in their last seven games and won’t be fazed by the visit to the Emirates. After all its a cup tie famous for its upsets and they’ll be hoping to get one.

Unfortunately for them, they meet an Arsenal team high on confidence and boasting an impeccable record this January. Despite playing an all time high, 8 games in January, in those eight games we have conceded just three times (all in cup competitions) and have scored 16 goals, including three in each of their last four games. So on paper, it should be a walkover for us. Yes!

Irrespective of the team we send out there, I expect a demolition job and fancy Bendtner or Chamakh to nab a brace or hat trick. This is what the team might look like.

    Chezzer

    Eboue, Squillaci, Miquel, Gibbs

    Denilson, Diaby, Wilshere

    Bendtner, Chammy29, Arshavin

Prediction : Arsenal 4-0 Huddersfield

So, the 5th round awaits us so long we avoid any nasty surprises and I’m glad Benik Afobe(Arsenal player on loan at Huddersfield) is ineligible to play. Don’t want him hitting the back of the net or causing us any problems.

From wherever you’re reading, have fun and make sure you keep an eye on Oxlade Chamberlain against Manure. I hope he scores the goal that sends them crashing out.

  2. i agree with everything else except for the line up.yu dont want denilson or miquel in that team,as substututes yes.denilson shld go on loan,vela should not come back

    • Is there something about miquel that you know which says he shouldn’t be in the team. Consider the opposition and the fact that JD and Koscielny have played 9 games in a row. Let them rest. Am sorry but Denilson should leave permanently and Vela should come back.
