While the official team news when it comes to who will start tonight’s game against Wolverhampton Wanderers won’t be released until 6.15pm, has provided fans with an update with regards to some players who are currently out through injury or suspension.

Many of them weren’t expected to make it back in time for the visit of Nuno Espirito Santo’s men, but it’s important to keep track of things like this as we move into what can only be described as the most hectic, and probably the most challenging, period of the year.

Tomorrow night, Arsenal will attempt to finally get back on the winning trail when they lock horns with Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Emirates. Ever since returning to the Premier League, Wolves have been able to string together two incredibly impressive seventh place finishes – and while they may have lost Doherty & Jota, there’s every chance they’ll replicate that feat this time around.

Still, with just one win over Arsenal since 1979, it’s clear to see that the Gunners – for whatever reason – have done a better job of containing Nuno Espirito Santo’s men in comparison to the other top six teams. Alas, they’re definitely dangerous, and manager Mikel Arteta admitted that during a recent interview with

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has mostly been deployed on the left side of Arsenal’s attack, not only since Mikel Arteta took over, but under Unai Emery as well. Not putting the team’s best goalscorer into the central attacking position has often been mentioned as something not easily understood by the fans, but the fact remains that the captain has been very effective when cutting in from the left.

As for the Gabonese himself, he was asked about where he prefers to play, and his answer was simple.

It was the definition of a well-rounded performance and manager Mikel Arteta recognised that, talking through the ins and outs of the win with the media after the game.

As relayed by the Mirror, William Saliba is desperate to leave Arsenal on loan in January in order to get regular first-team opportunities.

The Gunners signed the 19-year-old defender in the summer of 2019, paying a reported fee of £27 million – not a small amount for a player of that age with very little experience, even if his previous performances for Saint-Etienne were mature. A part of the agreement was a season-long loan back to the Ligue 1 side, which would have suited Arsenal fine had not the Covid-19 outbreak caused the season in France to be cut short, limiting Saliba’s number of appearances to just 12.

Arsenal have recently been credited with interest in RB Salzurg’s Dominik Szoboszlai, as the midfielder continues to spark admiration around Europe with glittering performances both at club and international level. The links have grown much stronger since David Ornstein of The Athletic revealed he had been informed that the interest is genuine.

However, with all the attention the 20-year-old Hungarian has been getting lately, bringing him to the Emirates was never going to be an easy task. Tottenham Hotspur are also keeping an eye on the situation, it has been reported, as are Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leicester City and AC Milan. And now, according to Football Insider, RB Leipzig are about to enter the race as well.

It’s safe to say that things haven’t quite gone to plan so far this season for Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, and while it hasn’t exactly been a disaster, it definitely hasn’t been perfect, either.

Still, while the critics have been out in force to point out the Spaniard’s mistakes, there is also a general acceptance of the fact that he is a new manager who is still attempting to learn the ropes. As such, there are also going to be some progressive decisions make that counter some of the errors.
