Wolverhampton vs Arsenal Predictions
- BT Sport 1
- Arsenal have scored eight goals across their last three away league games, winning each of them
- Bukayo Saka has scored in four of his last six Premier League games
- Wolves have lost five of their last eight league games (D3)
- Arsenal have conceded in one of their last six league games
Arteta continues Arsenal recovery
Arsenal made it seven league games without defeat as they drew 0-0 on Saturday against Manchester United. That result has just about left Arsenal inside the top 10, but the Gunners now sit only six points off the Champions League spots.
Mikel Arteta will be hoping to continue to guide the Gunners up the table, a task which is helped by a dire run of form from Wolves ahead of Tuesday night’s encounter.
Gunners scoring touch to return
Arsenal may be fresh from a 0-0 draw, but we expect them to liven up in front of goal for this clash. They’ve scored 14 times across their last seven league games, hitting eight in their last three league games on the road (W3).
A boost to Arsenal’s hopes going forward is the return of Bukayo Saka. The young winger has scored five times in the league for the Gunners this season, with four of those coming in his last six appearances. We’re backing him to notch again here, with Wolves conceding in their last six at home.
Wolves to continue rotten run
Defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday made it eight games without a victory for Wolves in the Premier League. They come into this one having lost five of those eight, while their last two home games have brought losses to West Brom and Everton.
With Arsenal going from strength to strength we see the Gunners taking all three points in this encounter. The visitors have won four of their five clashes away to sides below them in the league and we’re backing Arsenal to take the point here.
With the Gunners keeping a clean sheet in five of their last six league games we’re also backing a 2-0 victory by the visitors on Tuesday.

Raul Jimenez remains a big absentee for Wolves, while the hosts are further weakened with Ruben Neves set to miss out after the birth of his child.
