Arsenal is now unbeaten in the last 21 matches after salvaging 1 nil win against Huddersfield Town thanks to a beautiful goal by the one and only Lucas Torreira who scored his second goal for the North Londoners in another special way. Even though the gunners have won this match but it has come at consequences which will definitely affect them in their next match against Southampton.
SOKRATIS PAPASTATHOPOULOS TO MISS SOUTHAMPTON MATCH
Sokratis Papastathopoulos is a fierce Arsenal defender that is known to be very serious on the pitch but he plays a rough game. He was booked on Saturday after fouling a Huddersfield Town player but it wasn’t just a yellow card because he will miss the match against Southampton because he has now received five domestic, yellow cards. This is a huge blow for the gunners because he was in Unai Emery’s first eleven.
SHKODRAN MUSTAFI LIMPS OFF THE PITCH IN HUDDERSFIELD MATCH
The German defender has been the heart of Arsenal’s defence and he has been outstanding even though he is at times guilty of the goals which the gunners concede. Shkodran Mustafi was selected in the starting eleven that faced Huddersfield Town but he was however replaced by Nacho Monreal in the second half of the game after he got injured. Even if Mustafi hadn’t got injured, he would have still missed the Southampton match because he also received his fifth domestic yellow card.
