Wagner makes three changes to the starting XI

- David Wagner names Huddersfield Town line-up to face Arsenal
- Terriers make three changes to the side that faced AFC Bournemouth
- Danny Williams, Chris Löwe and Tommy Smith return

Danny Williams makes his first start of the 2018/19 Premier League season as one of three changes to the Huddersfield Town line-up to face Arsenal today; 3pm kick-off at the Emirates Stadium.

The 29-year-old USA international comes into midfield in place of the suspended Philip Billing, making his 150th start in competitive English football in the process.

This is Williams’ first start in league football since the away game at Spurs on 3 March due to unfortunate ankle and knee injuries.

There’s also a welcome return for Chris Löwe, who has missed the last three games with the shoulder injury he picked up in the 1-1 draw with West Ham United on 10 November. He replaces Erik Durm in the starting line-up, who is among the substitutes today.

The final change sees Club Captain Tommy Smith return to skipper the side in place of Florent Hadergjonaj, who is a substitute today.

With Abdelhamid Sabiri sidelined with the fractured collarbone he suffered at AFC Bournemouth on Tuesday night, 21-year-old midfielder Juninho Bacuna is a substitute today.

Philip Billing (suspended), Steve Mounié (suspended) and Abdelhamid Sabiri (injured) are the only players unavailable for selection this afternoon.
