      Any faint hope that Huddersfield could avoid the drop from the Premier League this season is fading with every week that passes. Their latest failure came at Stamford Bridge as they were thrashed 5-0 by Maurizio Sarri’s Chelsea side, extending their winless run to 12 matches in the Premier League and leaving them staring an an ever increasing gulf between themselves and safety.

      The Terriers remain bottom of the table, now 13 points adrift of the safety of 17th and having lost 11 of their last 12 league games. Their only point during this period came in a goalless draw away to the relegation threatened Cardiff, so their chances of getting anything against Arsenal are slim to say the least.

      In fairness, The Gunners aren’t in the best of form right now either. Their 3-1 defeat to Manchester City last weekend made it 3 wins and 3 defeats from their last 6 in the league, and this downturn in form has seen Manchester United leapfrog them into 5th in the table.

      Arsenal are still in with a shot at the Premier League top 4 with the gap only at 3 points, but with The Red Devils emerging as contenders Unai Emery will have a battle on his hands for the remainder of this season.

      Saturday’s matchup at the John Smiths Stadium marks the perfect opportunity for Arsenal to put some pressure on Chelsea above them, and with The Terriers picking up just 5 points from a possible 39 in front of their own fans a win for the visitors does look very likely.

      Even with their recent dip in performances, one thing you can usually expect from Arsenal is a few goals. They have scored at least 2 goals in 6 of their last 8 away games against teams outside the Premier League Big Six, and Huddersfield have shipped 2 or more goals in 4 of their last 6 home games in the Premier League.

      This makes a bet of Arsenal Over 1.5 Team Goals look very tempting at this price, and that’s what we’re backing along with a 2-1 win for the visiting side for our correct score prediction.
