Wagner makes six changes for game at the Emirates

Huddersfield Town Head Coach David Wagner has made six changes to the starting XI for tonight’s Premier League game against Arsenal; 7.45pm kick-off at Emirates Stadium.

The first change sees Collin Quaner make his first ever Premier League start; the 26 year-old replaces the suspended Rajiv van La Parra in the line-up.

Martin Cranie is also back in the side; the experienced defender comes in for Danny Williams, who is among the substitutes.

Both full-backs are changed by Wagner too, with Chris Löwe making a first start in four games on the left in place of Scott Malone and Florent Hadergjonaj coming back in for Tommy Smith on the opposite flank. With Smith on the bench tonight, Jonathan Hogg will take the Captain’s armband.

Elias Kachunga makes a return to the line-up tonight also; he replaces Tom Ince, who is also a substitute.

The final change to the starting line-up sees record signing Steve Mounié make his first start since picking up a heel injury at West Ham in mid-September. His first start in 11 competitive games comes at the expense of Laurent Depoitre.

Wagner is still without the services of Philip Billing (ankle), Jon Gorenc Stanković (knee) and Michael Hefele (Achilles), adding to van La Parra’s suspension.
