Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern will be looking for the side to finish as strong as possible since the news broke that Arsene Wenger has decided to call time on his reign as manager.
The Gunners boss is set to depart at the end of the season and will be trying to bring the Europa League to the Emirates Stadium, however, the club will be looking ahead to their clash with Huddersfield Town in the Premier League.
According to Ben Dinnery, who is a freelance injury analyst, Arsenal will be without two key players for their clash with the Terriers.
The analyst has revealed (following Wenger’s pre-match press conference) that Henrikh Mkhitaryan will remain sidelined with a knee injury, while Mohamed Elneny has a very small chance of making the game.

There is some good news about the Egypt international’s status after he appeared to suffer a serious injury during their 4-1 victory against West Ham United. It is believed he will be available for his national team during the World Cup after initial fears thought he may have to miss out on the tournament.
The locals in the Tavern will be looking for their side to continue from where they left off with the win against the Hammers with another three points against Huddersfield. Punters will realise Elneny’s and Mkhitaryan’s absences will be big but will be hoping they can get the job done at the weekend.
