Arsenal are set to welcome Wolves to the Emirates on Sunday afternoon in the premier league in what is likely to be an interesting match. The Gunners have a chance to get back into top four with a win over Wolves but will be hoping one of the top four teams lose.
The Gunners have gone 15 matches unbeaten in all competitions now and will be looking to make it 16 by getting at least a point today. The team form has been inconsistent lately with back to back draws, the recent one being in the Europa league.
A wun for Emery’s boys this weekend will ensure that they are on their best unbeaten league run since December 2016, though critics will point out that they have already lost to Manchester City and Chelsea, while also drawing with Liverpool, in their only major Premier League tests to date.
The Gunners will be hoping to dispatch middle table teams now ahead of a tough december. They have matches against Tottenham, Manchester United and Liverpool.
Alex Iwobi amd Aaron Ramsey will be back in the starting eleven. Matteo Guendouzi will also we hoping to het a start alongside Saed Kolasinac.
Nacho Monreal is back from the sidelines and will likely be named in the side. Alexander Lacazette and Aubameyang are expected to lead the line.
Arsenal possible starting eleven:
Leno; Bellerin, Mustafi, Holding, Kolasinac; Torreira, Xhaka; Iwobi, Ozil, Aubameyang; Lacazette.
Wolves have started the season well but are now going on a slow run with their last match, against Tottenham ending in a 3-2 defeat. The team previously managed draws against the two Manchester teams but must now find a way to translate their play to getting results.
They have lost their last 3 games and will be heading for a fourth defeat as Arsenal have a better performance ratio against clubs like Wolves.
The West Midlands side have lost more premier games against arsenal than any other team, with their last triumph coming nine matches ago. All three of their goals in that time, meanwhile, have come via corners.
Diogo Jota is the only major doubt for the team. Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho are expected to keep their places while Costa and Jimenez lead the line
Wolverhampton Wanderers possible starting eleven:
Patricio; Bennett, Coady, Boly; Doherty, Moutinho, Neves, Jonny; Costa, Jimenez, Cavaleiro
