Confirmed line-ups: Huddersfiled vs Arsenal: Ozil, Ramsey & Auba all ruled out

By on February 9, 2019


Arsenal take on Huddersfield Town at the John Smiths’ Stadium this afternoon and Unai Emery has seen his attacking options decimated for the game.

Mesut Ozil hasn’t travelled to due illness while Aaron Ramsey also fails to make the trip. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is ruled out with a heavy cold so we don’t have too many attacking options on the bench.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan returns to start alongside Alex Iwobi and Alexandre Lacazette with Denis Suarez joining Joe Willock and Eddie Nketiah among the substitutes.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles starts at right wing-back with Stephan Lichtsteiner dropping out while Matteo Guendouzi keeps his place in midfield with Granit Xhaka ruled out with a groin injury.

These are the line-ups for the game:


Hamer, Smith, Jorgensen, Schindler, Kongolo, Mooy, Hogg, Bacuna, Puncheon, Kachunga, Diakhaby

Subs: Billing, Coleman, Ahearne-Grant, Depoitre, Pritchard, Stankovic, Durm


Leno, Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal, Maitland-Niles, Guendouzi, Torreira, Kolasinac, Iwobi, Lacazette, Mkhitaryan

Subs: Cech, Elneny, Lichtsteiner, Suarez, Mavropanos, Nketiah, Willock

    Call Ozil to do defency duty is just like instruct Messi to defence (that’s why he never play well in Argentina national squad ).Ozil must give freedom to roam in front,that’s his talent.
    Stubborn coach like Emery may only wait for his sacking call.
