Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Huddersfield Town

By , Editor | 12d
Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Champions League-chasing Arsenal ahead of their Premier League clash with Huddersfield Town on Saturday.

Arsenal suffered a forgettable weekend as they slipped from fourth place to sixth in the Premier League table before they even kicked a ball.

Things did not exactly improve when they did get a chance to respond to wins for Chelsea and Manchester United either, with Manchester City cruising to a 3-1 win over Unai Emery's side at the Etihad Stadium.

The Gunners have now lost three of their last five games across all competitions and, having been in the Champions League places on goal difference before the last round of fixtures, they now find themselves three points and seven goals worse off than fourth-placed Chelsea.

Arsenal have suffered some torrid luck with injuries this season, in fairness, and they once again have a lengthy list of absentees ahead of Saturday's match against bottom-of-the-table Huddersfield Town.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Emery's side.



ARSENAL'S INJURY LIST

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Status: Slight doubt
Type of injury: Illness
Possible return date: February 9

Arsenal's top scorer Aubameyang has come down with an illness in the buildup to this match, although he is expected to recover in time for Saturday.



Laurent Koscielny



Status: Slight doubt
Type of injury: Illness
Possible return date: February 9

Like Aubameyang, Koscielny is also suffering from illness and is therefore a minor doubt for the game.



Shkodran Mustafi

Status: Slight doubt
Type of injury: Back
Possible return date: February 9

Mustafi joined Arsenal's list of injury concerns after picking up a back problem against Man City at the weekend, but Emery played down concerns over his fitness and the German could recover in time to feature on Saturday.



Granit Xhaka



Status: Slight doubt
Type of injury: Groin
Possible return date: February 9

Xhaka was a late withdrawal from the squad to face Man City after picking up a groin injury, although his injury is not thought to be serious and he could return in time for this weekend.



Ainsley Maitland-Niles



Status: Slight doubt
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: February 9

Maitland-Niles has missed Arsenal's last two games with a knee injury but could be in line to return this weekend.



Henrikh Mkhitaryan



Status: Slight doubt
Type of injury: Foot
Possible return date: February 9

Henrikh Mkhitaryan could also be in line for his first appearance since December 19 as he nears a full recovery from his broken metatarsal.



Sokratis Papastathopoulos



Status: Out
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: February 21

Emery revealed that the injury to Sokratis is not particularly serious, but this Saturday's match is still expected to come too soon for the centre-back.



Hector Bellerin



Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Bellerin will miss the rest of this season and the start of next after undergoing surgery on an ACL injury which he sustained against Chelsea on January 19.



Rob Holding



Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Holding is also out for the remainder of the season having required the same surgery as Bellerin.



Danny Welbeck



Status: Out
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: Unknown

Yet another long-term injury absentee, Welbeck needed two operations on his ankle and is also expected to miss the rest of the season.



ARSENAL'S SUSPENSION LIST



Arsenal have no suspensions for this match.
