Wolves vs Arsenal betting tips: Premier League match preview & predictions

Wolves vs Arsenal prediction: Wolves 2-1 Arsenal

Wolves will be looking for a first win in four in all competitions. The home side have a brilliant record against top six opposition this season.

Wolves are unbeaten in their last six Premier League matches at home, while Arsenal have only won two of their last ten away matches in the league.

A lot will depend on Unai Emery’s team selection, which he got horribly wrong on Sunday.

Wolves vs Arsenal: Who will win?

Arsenal are marginal favourites at 31/20 while a Wolves win is priced at 19/10. The draw is 5/2.

Arsenal have kept one clean sheet in 16 away Premier League matches this season. Back both teams to score at 4/6.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the joint-leading goalscorer in the league this season with 19 goals. Aubameyang is 10/3 to open the scoring and 20/21 to score anytime.

Wolves vs Arsenal Premier League match preview

Wolves host Arsenal at Molineux in the Premier League on Wednesday night.

Arsenal’s top four hopes took a slight knock on Sunday as they were beaten 3-2 at home by Crystal Palace.

Following Arsenal’s win in Naples last week, manager Unai Emery opted for heavy rotation for the visit of the Eagles. There was some truly shambolic defending on show from the home side who found themselves 1-0 down at the break.

Mesut Ozil equalised soon after half time with one of his trademark bounced finishes, but further errors in defence saw Palace take a 3-1 lead. Pierre-Emerick Aubamayang managed to pull one back for Arsenal with a terrific solo effort, but it wasn’t enough to earn his side a point.

Luckily for Arsenal, Manchester United and Spurs were also beaten this weekend. Chelsea’s draw with Burnley means the Gunners are outside the top four coming into this one, but they have a game in hand on the Blues.

Arsenal’s final three league matches after Wolves are against Leicester, Brighton and Burnley. They also have two Europa League semi-final legs against Valencia to tackle in that period.

Wolves were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Brighton on Saturday. Recent form has seen Wolves drop from 7th to 10th.

After being knocked out of the FA Cup semi-final earlier in the month, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are hoping to cement their place as the Premier League’s ‘best of the rest’.

Regardless of where Wolves end up at the end of the campaign, it will have been a superb first season back in the Premier League. Wolves face Watford, Fulham and Liverpool in their final three games of the season.

Wednesday’s game will be the 10th Premier League meeting between the two sides. The Gunners have never lost to Wolves in the competition, winning on seven occasions. Arsenal have won their last 4 away matches against Wolves in all competitions.

The two sides played out a 1-1 draw at the Emirates in the reverse fixture in November. Ivan Cavaleiro gave Wolves an early lead before Henrikh Mkhitaryan rescued a point late on.

Wolves team news vs Arsenal

Nuno Espirito Santo has a fully fit squad to choose from.

Morgan Gibbs-White was picked ahead of Leander Dendocker against Brighton and will be hoping to continue in midfield.

Romain Saiss was an unused substitute on Saturday and is an option in midfield or defence.

Ruben Vinagre and Adama Traore are likely to play a part off the substitutes bench.

Arsenal team news vs Wolves

Unai Emery raised a number of eyebrows with his team selection on Sunday. Alex Iwobi, Maitland-Niles and Lucas Torreira were all left out of the starting eleven, while Nacho Monreal and Henrikh Mkhitaryan were unused substitutes. All five of those players will be pushing for starts on Wednesday.

Carl Jenkinson and Mohamed Eleneny will almost certainly make way, while Shkodran Mustafi is expected to be dropped after he made two costly errors against the Eagles. Sokratis Papastathopoulos should start in Mustafi’s palce after completing his two-match suspension.

Granit Xhaka is a doubt with a hip injury which kept him out against Crystal Palace. A decision on Xhaka will be made close to kick-off. Matteo Guendouzi should start alongside Lucas Torreira if Xhaka fails to recover.

Aaron Ramsey remains sidelined with a hamstring injury picked up against Napoli. The club are hopeful that Ramsey will recover before he completes his free transfer to Juventus in the summer.

Denis Suarez, yet to start a single match for the Gunners, has been ruled out with a groin injury.

Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Danny Welbeck are long-term injury absentees.
