Huddersfield Town F.C. was where Herbert Chapman won Div 1 twice before arriving at Arsenal. We owe them but the debt should be paid by allowing them a few minutes of parity before scoring a a hatful.
One of GN5 mates
A hatful is possible but unlikely because, as H’field showed against City, they are a very good, well-organised team. Scoring is a problem, as far as I can see, they have scored only 3 goals away from home all season and all three were in the same game! But, they have beaten Man Utd so this is unlikely to be a walkover.
Much is made of Wagner (the manager not the composer), and he does seem to be more than just Jurgen Klopp’s best friend.
Expect PTB and loads of possession, something we witness so often at The Emirates.
My Team (the one I expect to play, not the one I would pick)
Mustafi Koscielny Monreal
Bellerin Ramsey Xhaka Kolasinac
If it were my choice we would play 4-3-3 with Welbeck starting and resting Kolasinac. I don’t see the need for the extra defender when playing a side who are certain to defend in depth and play on the break.
What would be your chosen team?
We need these 3 points and to continue our wonderful home form (well results rather than form). With a hige game on the weekend we need to maitain confidence and drive.
So, welcome to the Emirates Huddersfield, it is excellent when such a small club proves money is not the only driver in football. I really hope you have the opportunity to play here next season and get beaten again 😀
