Arsenal are set to bring the club’s pre-World Cup endeavours to a close with a trip to England’s west Midlands on Saturday, November 12th.
The clash in question will see Mikel Arteta’s troops go toe-to-toe with relegation-battling Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Should the Gunners ultimately emerge triumphant, then they will head into the upcoming break guaranteed of table-topping status in the Premier League, amid what has proven a stellar campaign to date.
Just who, though, is set to be at the disposal of boss Arteta? And, perhaps even more importantly, who will not?
Below, we take a look at precisely that.
Predicted Arsenal line-up vs Wolves
Emile Smith Rowe
Arsenal have not been forced to contend with too many injury concerns ahead of their trip to Molineux, but one member of the Gunners’ first-team ranks certain to miss out comes in the form of Emile Smith Rowe.
Midfielder ESR has endured a nightmare campaign to date, on his way to just four league appearances, all off the bench.
In turn, after undergoing surgery to correct a groin problem at the back end of September, the England international remains unavailable for selection.Open in new window
The only other notable doubt across the Gunners’ ranks heading into the weekend is Takehiro Tomiyasu.
The Japanese has too struggled for fitness throughout the season to date, and was forced off prematurely during Arsenal’s Europa League meeting with FC Zurich late last week.
The issue, at the time, was labelled as a minor one, meaning ‘Tomi’ should be in contention to mark his return to the matchday setup at Molineux.
