Team News: Alexandre Lacazette back for Arsene Wenger's swansong

Alexandre Lacazette is recalled to the starting XI for Arsene Wenger's final game in charge of Arsenal away at Huddersfield Town.

Alexandre Lacazette has been recalled to the starting XI for Arsene Wenger's final game in charge of Arsenal, away at Huddersfield Town this afternoon.

The Frenchman makes five changes from the side that were defeated 3-1 at Leicester City in midweek, with Lacazette replacing Danny Welbeck up front alongside Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Aaron Ramsey, Alex Iwobi and Granit Xhaka continue in the midfield, while Hector Bellerin and Shkodran Mustafi replace Ainsley Maitland-Niles and the suspended Kostas Mavropanos in the defence alongside Rob Holding and Sead Kolasinac.

The other change comes between the sticks as David Ospina gets the nod ahead of Petr Cech.

Elsewhere, Jack Wilshere fails to return to the matchday squad after missing the loss to the Foxes due to the birth of his daughter.

As for the hosts, David Wagner makes four changes following the impressive 1-1 draw at Chelsea on Wednesday which guaranteed their survival in the Premier League.

Tom Ince - back from a hamstring injury - and Steve Mounie both return to the lineup and start up front, while Alex Pritchard is also back and joins Jonathan Hogg and Aaron Mooy in the midfield.

Florent Hadergjonaj comes in for Tommy Smith on the right of a defence that also includes Mathias Jorgensen, Christopher Schindler, Terence Kongolo and Chris Lowe.

Huddersfield Town: Lossl; Hadergjonaj, Jorgensen, Schindler, Kongolo, Lowe; Hogg, Mooy, Pritchard; Ince, Mounie
Subs: Coleman, Smith, Whitehead, Billing, Sabiri, Depoitre, Stankovic

Arsenal: Ospina; Bellerin, Mustafi, Holding, Kolasinac; Ramsey, Xhaka, Iwobi; Mkhitaryan, Aubameyang, Lacazette
Subs: Macey, Maitland-Niles, Mertesacker, Monreal, Willock, Welbeck, Nketiah
