Huddersfield have taken a healthy return of 15 points from their first 13 matches but have suffered defeats in five of their last seven games, including a 2-1 reverse at home to Manchester City on Sunday.

Merson's prediction

A good result for Arsenal at Burnley, I thought that was a great result to go there, which is a hard place, and dig in and win. And I thought Huddersfield did great against Man City. I am going to go 3-0 to Arsenal as away from home, Huddersfield are a lot different to what they are at home - Bournemouth beat them 4-0 at home.
