Tip Reasoning

  • Arsenal have failed to win five of their last seven games in all competitions.
  • Wolves have just one defeat in their last eight in the Premier League.
  • That loss came in the reverse fixture, but they were arguably unlucky not to at least claim a point.
  • Wolves concede just 0.75 goals-per-game in the league, Arsenal ship on average 1.1.

Tricky Wolves test for Gunners

Top four rivals Arsenal and Wolves meet at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday just two weeks after the Gunners claimed a 1-0 win in the reverse fixture.

A first-half strike from Gabriel proved the difference at Molineux earlier this month but Arsenal were perhaps lucky to leave with all three points, having seen less of the ball and creating few chances.

There are no fresh injury or suspension issues for either side and it wouldn’t be surprised to see the visitors take something in North London given their recent form.

Wolves in with a chance of cracking top four

Wolves have managed five wins in their last six in the Premier League, with the loss to Arsenal the only blemish on their recent record, and that form has seen them emerge as outside contenders for a top four finish and Champions League football.

Bruno Lage’s men sit seventh in the table and they are six points behind Manchester United in fourth with two games in hand. Arsenal are two points better off and have played a game less than Wolves.

The Gunners have managed back-to-back wins after beating Thursday’s visitors and then Brentford but prior to that they went five games without a win in all competitions and have scored just four goals during that period.

A Wolves or draw result in the double chance market is odds-against at the time of writing, and considering how close their first meeting was and the fact the visitors are the form team of the two I’m backing Lage’s side to take at least a point at the Emirates.

Must not lose clash for both

A win for either side would be a huge boost in terms of their respective European hopes, but a point wouldn’t be a disaster for both either. A draw would still leave the Gunners with the advantage over their rivals in the fight for what looks likely to be the final Champions League place left to play for and a point would keep Wolves in contention too so there is a chance the spoils could be shared at the Emirates.

Goals have been an issue for Wolves all season but they have improved in that respect lately, managing at least two in four of their last five league assignments. Arsenal have lacked a cutting edge lately but at home they have only failed to score in two of their last 14 in all competitions, while defensively they have been strong with three clean sheets in their last five games.

We could see both teams find a way through here, and a 1-1 result has some appeal in the correct score market. Wolves have conceded just 18 goals in 24 games – only Manchester City have conceded fewer – and Arsenal concede on average 1.1 per-game so it seems reasonable to expect both sides to score one each.

Arsenal predicted lineup: Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, Gabriel, White, Tierney, Partey, Xhaka, Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe, Lacazette

Wolves predicted lineup: Sa, Kilman, Coady, Saiss, Semedo, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Neves, Ait-Nouri, Jimenez, Podence
