Arteta provides Arsenal injury update ahead of Wolves & speaks out on new contract

Mikel Arteta would hold his pre-Wolves press conference on Wednesday morning.

Arsenal are set to face off with Wolves on Thursday in a Premier League clash.

Ahead of the game, Arteta would discuss a number of topics in his presser, including team news, which looks to be largely positive for Arsenal with no new concerns.

The Spaniard was also quizzed on the possibility of him signing a new Arsenal contract, to which he replied:  "I am really happy here.

"My aim is just to build with the club a winning team. A team people can enjoy watching. "Things will happen naturally. Our focus must be delivering what we want."

The Arsenal boss was then asked about the pressure of securing a top-four place in the Premier League, to which he replied: "There is going to be that till the end. Our focus has to be today. Train well today, be ready tomorrow to play a difficult match and show that on the pitch."

Arsenal vs Wolves

Arsenal will head into the midweek action sitting 6th in the Premier League table.

However, the north Londoners could yet overtake both West Ham and Manchester United by winning their games in hand.

Wolves, though, will prove no pushovers. Bruno Lage’s side are currently 8th in the Premier League, and have won four of their last five league outings.

They are also just five points behind Arsenal in the table, meaning Thursday’s tie is a must-win for Arteta and co.
