Wolves vs Arsenal: Predictions
Wolves have not been able to match the high standards they have set since their return to the Premier League back in 2018 and Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace emphasised that. Nuno Espirito Santo was left furious as he watched another game go by which his side was unable to clinch their first victory in the Premier League since 15 December 2020.
As for the visitors, Arsenal are enjoying a rich vein of form in the league which has seen Mikel Artera’s side climb the league table to just within two points of their bitter rivals Tottenham. The Gunners’ excellent league form means they arrive at Molineux on a seven-game unbeaten run – a stark contrast to their hosts.
Wolves have struggled ever since their talisman Raul Jiminez suffered a serious head injury in the reverse fixture back in November. Although Wolves took all three points that day, they have not been the same with only one win in the league to their name since.
Arteta’s injection of youth to his starting XI has been at the forefront of their resurgence in recent weeks. Title challengers Manchester United were held to a 0-0 draw at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday which will give the Arsenal defence a great deal of confidence going into Tuesday’s game against a struggling Wolves frontline.
Wolves vs Arsenal: Match Stats
In their last 14 games, Wolves have only kept one clean sheet which came last week away to Chelsea. The resurgent Gunners will be targeting the shaky Wolves defence, despite there being uncertainty as to when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will return to the squad.
New Wolves signing Willian Jose will be looking to get off the mark for his new side on his home debut. The Brazillian started for Wolves on Saturday and despite drawing a blank he did record two shots on target. He is likely to lead the line again after being brought in to relieve the pressure on the 18-year-old Fabio Silva.
29 November 2020 – Arsenal 1-2 Wolves – Premier League
4 July 2020 – Wolves 0-2 Arsenal – Premier League
2 November 2019 – Arsenal 1-1 Wolves – Premier League
24 April 2019 – Wolves 3-1 Arsenal – Premier League
11 November – Arsenal 1-1 Wolves – Premier League
In their last five meetings, Wolves have an excellent record against the Gunners. However, with the two sides’ recent form in mind, it is hard to see Arsenal not scoring. Willian Jose is going to have a huge say on this game if he can hit the ground running at Molineux then Wolves could ask questions of the visitors.
