Emery's men have also lost their last three Premier League away games and have not recorded a win on the road since beating Bournemouth in November a year ago.

Despite Huddersfield being bottom of the league having taken only one point from an available 36, Emery talked them up as an extremely tough challenge.

There was a positive update on Mkhitaryan as he could also be in contention again after the playmaker made his return from a fractured foot with a run out for the U23's on Monday night.

Emery will be boosted by the Ainsley Maitland-Niles while Henrikh Mkhitaryan is expected to be on the bench.

Emery also added that loan signing Denis Suarez, who joined from Barcelona in the transfer window, has been improving in training as the Spanish midfielder continues to adapt to his new club.

He stopped for 10 days but physically I think he is okay.

"Their last results have not been good but with their new coach (Jan Siewert), I am sure that they are going to play with big ambition and a big performance on Saturday". The team have lost four and drawn two of their past six Premier League away games to slip to sixth in the table and the manager knows the rot has to stop at Huddersfield on Saturday.

Xhaka will need to be assessed after the midfielder missed the defeat to Man City last time out with a groin injury but Emery didn't mention him at his press conference so it seems unlikely the Swiss global will be fit.

Meanwhile, Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey could be leaving the Emirates stadium at the end of the season so as to help Arsenal raise funds for new signings. They are now sixth in the table, but only three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea.
