Mark Lawrenson is backing Arsenal to ease to a 3-0 win against Huddersfield Town at The Emirates on Saturday afternoon.

The Gunners are unbeaten in 20 games in all competitions to underline their top-four credentials under Unai Emery this season.

Arsenal were 4-2 winners against Tottenham Hotspur in the north London derby last weekend to bolster their hopes of securing Champions League football next term.

The Gunners squandered the lead twice at Old Trafford on Wednesday night to settle for a 2-2 draw with Manchester United.

Emery’s side lost 2-0 to Manchester City in their opening fixture of the Premier League season before Liverpool FC left The Emirates with a point after a 1-1 draw.

Arsenal were 5-0 winners against Huddersfield in their Premier League meeting at The Emirates last term.

Former Liverpool FC defender Lawrenson is tipping the Gunners to rack up another big win against the Terriers at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Arsenal had a tough game against Manchester United on Wednesday night but they have got a decent-sized squad so I don’t see that being an issue here.

“I just can’t see a situation where Huddersfield can go to Emirates Stadium and win,” Lawrenson told BBC Sport.

“This game is not totally inconsequential when it comes to the Terriers’ survival hopes, but it will not be a game they will expect to get any points from and, if they do, it will be an absolute bonus.”

Arsenal have scored in 14 successive Premier League games to suggest that there will be goals at The Emirates on Saturday afternoon.

However, the Gunners have also conceded in 10 consecutive outings and Emery lost England international Rob Holding to a long-term injury at Old Trafford.

David Wagner’s side are facing an unenviable task and Huddersfield have only managed to win one of their last eight games.
