If there was ever a match I felt more confident about, it would be a home match against a struggling, relegation placed, Huddersfield Town. But once again the Premier League proved that even the smallest of teams can give the giants a scare, and they did just that.
This seemed like the type of game Unai Emery would use to rest some of his key players ahead of a very busy December, and a lot of people were hoping that the likes of Torreira, in particular, would be rested for this match to give him a break from the shifts he put in against Tottenham and Man United. I however, was hoping he’d play a strong squad, get a good lead and then take Torreira off to rest. The manager went on to say that he was going to give this match 100%, as not getting a win against Huddersfield would make the draw at United pointless. I was ecstatic to hear this, as a lot of managers make the mistake of underestimating smaller clubs in the Premier League, and get bit in the arse more often than not.
