Arsenal v Wolverhampton Wanderers

Match Preview
Arsenal will look to take advantage of a wounded Wolves side when they take to the field at the Emirates on Sunday.

Arsenal will look to take advantage of a wounded Wolves side when they take to the field at the Emirates on Sunday.

The Gunners are enjoying a strong run of form after losing their opening two Premier League games of the campaign to Manchester City and Chelsea.

Unai Emery’s men head into Sunday’s clash unbeaten in nine league games, although they have drawn their last two against Crystal Palace and Liverpool.

Arsenal will be without the services of striker Danny Welbeck due to a serious ankle injury sustained in the draw with Sporting Lisbon on Thursday.

Summer signing Stephan Lichtsteiner is also a doubt after limping out of the Europa League tie with a muscular problem.

Fellow defender Nacho Monreal is close to returning from a hamstring injury but he is unlikely to feature until after the international break, while Matteo Guendouzi is available after serving a two-game suspension.

Wolves wasted little time in settling into the Premier League but recent results have gone against them.

The Molineux outfit, who have lost each of their last three matches, are looking to avoid suffering four consecutive defeat for the first time since March 2017 when they lost six in a row.

Diogo Jota has fully recovered from a hamstring injury and could return to the starting XI for the first time since coming off the bench against Brighton on October 27.

Midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White impressed from the bench against Tottenham last weekend and is pushing for his first start.

Wolves have failed to come out on top in their last 19 league and cup meetings with Arsenal.
