Greek defender starts: 2 changes Arsenal must make to defeat Huddersfield

The Gunners need to get back to winning ways quickly.

Arsenal were defeated 3-1 by Manchester City in last weekend’s round of Premier League matches.

The loss offers the Gunners a setback in their quest to secure a return to next season’s Champions League.

Arsenal travel to Huddersfield Town tomorrow; facing a game that they must win.

The Terriers are this season’s whipping boys and sit bottom of the league with just 11 points.

Ahead of their trip to West Yorkshire, TBR Football looks at two changes Arsenal must make to ensure victory.

Denis Suarez for Alex Iwobi

A mistake from the Nigerian allowed Manchester City to open the scoring after 49 seconds last weekend.

With Suarez coming off the bench in that game, he will be desperately pushing to start against Huddersfield.

The 25-year-old made a January switch to the Gunners from Barcelona and handing him start against weak opposition could be ideal.

 

Arsenal need Suarez to come in and become an instant hit.

Allowing him the probable chance of running rings around a Terriers side short on confidence will set him up for the rest of the season.

Konstantinos Mavropanos for Shkodran Mustafi

Mustafi has looked clumsy at best of late.

The German defender looked to be struggling with injury towards the end of last weekend’s game and was withdrawn.

Mavropanos replaced him at City and he might get the nod to start here.

The 21-year-old hasn’t played any football this season; other than his cameo last week.

A game with Huddersfield would be the ideal occasion to throw him in a relatively low-risk move.
