On Wednesday night, Arsenal travels to Molineux to face Wolves, as the Gunners look to enhance to their chances of securing a Champions League spot for next season.
Wolves have hit a slight slump in form of late in the Premier League. The side from the Midlands are currently tenth-place in the table after just one win in their last five league games. Last time out, struggling Brighton held Nuno Espirito Santo’s side to a goalless draw.
The side from the Midlands have been involved in a lot of low-scoring games of late in the top-flight, with seven of their last nine league games producing under 2.5 goals.
Despite their recent unconvincing run of form in the top-flight, Wolves are unbeaten in six home games in the Premier League, having recorded four wins.
The home side has failed to win any of the last nine meetings with Arsenal in the Premier League while suffering seven defeats.
A surprise 3-2 home defeat against Crystal Palace last time out ended a three-game winning run in all competitions for the Gunners. The defeat means the team from north London has lost two of their last three league matches.
The defeat against Palace coupled with other top-flight results saw the Gunners drop to fifth-place in the Premier League table, a point behind third-place Tottenham and fourth-place Chelsea in the race for the Champions League spots
Arsenal’s recent games have been unusually low-scoring for the Gunners, as five of their last six league games have produced under 2.5 goals.
Unai Emery’s team have struggled for away wins in the Premier League, winning just two of their last ten away games in the league. However, one of those away wins came in a 1-0 win at Watford in their last match on their travels in the league. The win at Vicarage Road saw the Gunners keep their first clean sheet on their travels this season in the top-flight.
Wolves have a fully-fit squad. The biggest dilemma for boss Espirito Santo is whether to pick Morgan Gibbs-White or Leander Dendoncker in midfield.
Arsenal without Danny Welbeck, Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Aaron Ramsey due to injury. Denis Suarez and Granit Xhaka remain fitness doubts. Sokratis is available again after serving a two-game ban and is likely to replace Shkodran Mustafi at the heart of the Gunners defence.
Arsenal head into this clash as slight favourites at odds of 31/20, Wolves are odds of 19/10 and the draw is odds of 5/2.
The Gunners cannot afford to suffer another damaging defeat and will hopefully pick up a big result in the Midlands.
