Huddersfield 0-0 Arsenal LIVE score and goal updates from Premier League clash at John Smith’s Stadium


Huddersfield boss David Wagner has selected from an unchanged squad for his side’s last Premier League game of the season at home against Arsenal.

Wagner has no new injuries following Wednesday night’s draw at Chelsea, which secured them another season in the top flight.

Tom Ince is back after recovering from a hamstring injury, while Michael Hefele (knee), Elias Kachunga and Danny Williams (both ankle) remain sidelined.

Arsenal will be without the suspended Konstantinos Mavropanos for Arsene Wenger’s final game as manager.

The young defender was shown a straight red card in Wednesday’s 3-1 loss at Leicester and will be forced to sit out the game in West Yorkshire having started the Gunners’ last three league matches.

Mesut Ozil (back), Mohamed Elneny (ankle), Laurent Koscielny and Santi Cazorla (both Achilles) are also missing but the likes of Alexandre Lacazette and Jack Wilshere could return after sitting out in midweek.

Huddersfield: Lossl, Hadergjonaj, Schindler, Zanka, Kongolo, Lowe, Mooy, Hogg, Pritchard, Ince, Mounie

Arsenal: Ospina, Bellerin, Mustafi, Holding, Kolasinac, Xhaka, Ramsey, Iwobi, Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang, Lacazette

The match will not be aired live on TV in the UK, but you can, of course, follow all the action as it happens right here with Mirror Football.

WIDE! Mkhitaryan collects Lacazette’s cutback and he goes for the drive from the edge of the box. However, his effort is deflected wide of the target by Jorgensen.

Can Monsieur Aubameyang add to his goal tally today?

Has been a big part of seemingly all Arsenal goals since his arrival.

Won’t find Jorgensen easy to outrun this afternoon.
