Unai Emery says that after the midweek draw against Manchester United, the Gunners have to pick up maximum points at the Emirates
Arsenal host Huddersfield in the Premier League on Saturday at the Emirates Stadium as they aim to move back into the top four.
Unai Emery’s side stretched their undefeated run in all competitions to 20 matches on Wednesday as they picked up a point in a 2-2 draw with Manchester United. However, they twice led at Old Trafford only to rapidly cede their advantage on both occasions.
Huddersfield, meanwhile, are coming off the back of a week that has seen them go down 2-1 to Brighton and Bournemouth.
One point above the drop zone, David Wagner and his side would see anything from their trip to London as a bonus.

Unai Emery does not have too many pressing headaches prior to Saturday’s clash, though the duo of Aaron Ramsey and Danny Welbeck remain absent. Rob Holding, meanwhile, has been ruled out for the season.
It seems unlikely that Laurent Koscielny will be considered for game time after returning recently to training after six months out, while Mesut Ozil remains a major doubt. Nacho Monreal is the other player who needs checked.
Alexandre Lacazette is liable to start after a strong cameo at Old Trafford, while Granit Xhaka will feature after a ban.
Possible Arsenal starting XI: Leno; Lichtsteiner, Sokratis, Mustafi; Bellerin, Xhaka, Torreira, Kolasinac; Mkhitaryan, Lacazette, Aubameyang
Huddersfield will be without Steve Mounie, who has two games of a three-match ban still to serve, and Philip Billing, who misses out after picking up five yellow cards.
On the injury front, Chris Lowe is back in training but Ramadan Sobhi is a fresh doubt.
Possible Huddersfield starting XI: Lossl; Hadergjonaj, Zanka, Schindler, Kongolo, Durm; Williams, Mooy, Bacuna; Van La Parra; Depoitre
Arsenal are 2/7 favourites to win this match at bet365. A draw is priced at 5/1, while a Huddersfield victory can be backed at 11/1.
