Here are nine match facts and stats (provided by OPTA) you should know prior to kick-off:

2. Huddersfield have lost eight of their last nine top-flight matches against Arsenal (W1), failing to score in each defeat.

3. Arsenal are now 20 games unbeaten in all competitions (W15 D5 L0); their longest run without a defeat since November 2007 (28 unbeaten).

4. Huddersfield have collected just two points in their seven away Premier League matches against the ‘big six’ clubs (W0 D2 L5), scoring just twice in those seven games.
