‘Banter FC’ and ‘meme club’ – These Arsenal fans react to Unai Emery’s lineup vs Huddersfield, two stars out with illness

Take a look at some reaction to Arsenal’s lineup for their clash against relegation candidates Huddersfield, the Gunners have their work cut out for them if they plan on finishing in the top four.

The biggest miss for Arsenal today will be Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the forward is sidelined with an illness according to Mirror Football – Aubameyang will miss the chance to potentially go ahead of Mohamed Salah in the race for the Golden Boot.

Midfielders, Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey are both out and there’s little surprise in the fact that Unai Emery has decided to leave Mesut Ozil out of his matchday squad. This will no doubt fuel further speculation regarding the playmaker’s future.

It’s understood that the World Cup winner is ill:

Today could see youngsters Eddie Nketiah and Joe Willock get a chance in the Premier League, the pair are on the bench and Nketiah could certainly get some minutes late on if Emery decides to bring off Alexandre Lacazette.

New signing Denis Suarez is also on the bench.

Check out the team below:

Here’s some reaction to the lineup:

Whilst the likes of Manchester United focus on the Champions League and the FA Cup, Arsenal have a good chance to move up the league table.

After today’s clash against Huddersfield, they have two clashes against BATE in the Europa League before returning to Premier League action against Southampton and Bournemouth. Two ties that are as winnable as your going to get in this league.

With United facing Liverpool and Chelsea facing Tottenham during the same game-week that the Gunners face Southampton, this is a perfect opportunity for Emery’s side to get back into pole position for a fourth place finish.

Today’s task is to deliver a commanding performance that will build momentum for the coming weeks.
