The Gunners have lost two and won three of their last five Premier League games and they will be looking to get their top-four push back on track with victory over Huddersfield on Saturday.
Under Unai Emery, Arsenal now sit sixth, having been overtaken by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United side, who sit a point ahead, while Chelsea are fourth and three points clear of the Gunners.
This is the kind of fixture in which Emery sees a place for Mesut Ozil, whose through-ball abilities work well against the smaller teams.
According to the report by UK Sun, Unai Emery will be glad if at least three out of his five requests can be granted at the Emirates stadium. We started very well away, changing our mentality to get more points away. We are strong at home, we need to do better away.
Sergio Aguero's hattrick gave Man City their three points in a game most people expected Arsenal to suffer a defeat.

Having returned to boyhood club Everton for last season, the former England global joined D.C United in Major League Soccer. Solskjaer's side face Fulham in the league on Saturday.
Arsenal fans were not impressed with an insipid performance in their 3-1 loss at Manchester City last week that suggested Emery has yet to get to grips with problems he inherited from Arsene Wenger at the end of last season.
Emery, the most successful coach in Europa League history, can legitimately expect to wait until March before deciding whether that competition offers a more realistic opportunity of Champions League qualification than a league placing.
Huddersfield are 13 points away from safety and with 13 games remaining to be played in the Premier League, the odds are not with the bottom side to make it out of the danger zone.
"We have to continue in our way with passion and also stay calm, but above all we must work hard and take a good feeling in training and then show it in the match".
"I hope he's continuing to improve every day".
"We know that defensively we need to do better. For us as well, away games have been a challenge and each match is a new challenge".
