MATCH PREVIEW: ARSENAL (H)

10 May 2018

Sponsored by

With Premier League status confirmed, Huddersfield Town’s final match of the 2017/18 season is at home to Arsenal on Sunday 13 May 2018.

The match kicks off at 3pm at the John Smith’s Stadium in what is Arsène Wenger’s last ever match as Manager of Arsenal Football Club.

The most dramatic of hard fought points at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night (9 May 2018) secured Town’s top-flight status with Swansea now unable to catch the Terriers.

Arsenal come into the game without picking up a point away from home in the Premier League in 2018.

The Gunners will finish the season in sixth no matter of their result, with Chelsea 10 points ahead in fifth and Burnley six points behind in seventh.

Arsène Wenger’s side lost its last league match 3-1 against Leicester City, with striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring Arsenal’s only goal.

This match signifies the end of Wenger’s reign with the Gunners after a 22 year spell with the Club.
