Arsenal vs. Huddersfield: FA Cup match preview

New, comment

Kickoff: 7 AM EST
TV Coverage: Fox Soccer Channel

Arsenal welcome League One promotion hopefuls Huddersfield Town to the Emirates tomorrow for their FA Cup 4th round matchup.  Arsenal had to overcome resistance from Leeds in a replay to get to this point, and Huddersfield beat Dover in the last round.  Dover...Dover.

For Arsenal, some faces are returning to the squad from injury layoffs.  Tomas Rosicky should be back as well as Manuel Almunia and Abou Diaby.  Sebastien Squillaci should be back in the squad, too.  Given that Aresnal have a match against Everton 56 or so hours after the match tomorrow, Arsène Wenger will no doubt be looking to rest as many players as possible.

Huddersfield have taken Arsenal youth prospect Benik Afobe on loan for the rest of the season.  The Terriers sit at third in League One right now, three points off the automatic promotion pace.

Possible lineup:

Szczesny

Eboue         Squillaci        Koscielny       Gibbs

Denilson        Wilshere

Rosicky

Bendtner        Chamakh       Arshavin

But maybe Wenger will want to work Diaby in there somewhere, too?  And maybe use Almunia again?
