Arsenal vs Wolverhampton Wanderers match preview

This season may not have delivered Arsenal’s first Premier League title for 19 years, but it’s certainly been a campaign to remember for the millions affiliated to the club.

The Gunners spent 248 days top of the table, that’s 93% of the season, which is the longest amount for any team who’s not gone on to win the title in English top-flight history.

Mikel Arteta’s team come into this following back-to-back defeats, smashed 3-0 by Brighton in their last home game, before a lifeless 1-0 reverse at Nottingham Forest last weekend.

Overall, Arsenal have won just two of their last eight, which has been nowhere near enough to keep pace with Man City.

Nevertheless, with the second-youngest squad in the division, and the return of Champions League football, the future is looking bright.

Here, Arsenal are targeting a fourth consecutive win over Wolves, after the Wanderers had achieved a first league double over the Gunners for 42 years during the 2020/21 season.

As for Wolverhampton Wanderers, they’ve become the first team to survive despite being bottom at Christmas since Leicester in 2015.

Julen Lopetegui’s arrival during the World Cup break has been key to their turnaround, with Wolves winning four successive top-flight home games for the first time since 1975 during April and May.

This streak finally came to an end last weekend, held to a 1-1 draw by Everton, conceding in the 99th minute, after Hwang Hee-chan had broken the deadlock, turning in a rebound.

Nevertheless, the Wanderers’ survival had been secured a while ago, now seeking a victory that could see them end the campaign above Chelsea.

This though does seem unlikely, given that Wolves have won just two of their last 22 Premier League away games, beating Everton on Boxing Day and Everton in February.

Arsenal meantime have won their last 13 home games on the final day of the season, dating back to 1993, with another home win in North London likely.

Arsenal team news

Defenders William Saliba, Oleksandr Zinchenko and Takehiro Tomiyasu are all sidelined, so Mikel Arteta shook things up at the City Ground.

Jakub Kiwior shifted over to left-back, with Benjamin White moving into the middle and Thomas Partey filling-in at right-back.

Safe to say, this did not work, so brining back either Kieran Tierney or Rob Holding would make sense wouldn’t it?

In attack, Gabriel Martinelli is sidelined, while Leandro Trossard, Reiss Nelson and Bukayo Saka are all doubt, so could Emile Smith Rowe start a game for the first time since 16 May last year?

Meanwhile, this is likely to be Granit Xhaka’s 297th appearance for the club; he’ll wave goodbye before reportedly joining Bayer Leverkusen.

Predicted XI (4-1-4-1): Ramsdale; White, Kiwior, Gabriel, Tierney; Jorginho, Xhaka, Ødegaard; Saka, Smith Rowe; Jesus.

Wolverhampton Wanderers team news

Daniel Bentley has started Wolves’ last two games in goal, impressing on his Premier League debut at Old Trafford, so will be given another opportunity here.

Nathan Collins, João Gomes, Adama Traoré and goal-scorer Hwang Hee-chan all came into the team for the draw with Everton, while out of contract João Moutinho hasn’t traveled to London for this game.

Striker Raúl Jiménez waved goodbye to Molineux after that match; he sadly hasn’t been the same since suffering a fractured skull at the Emirates in 2020.

Predicted XI (4-4-2): Bentley; Semedo, Dawson, Collins, Toti; Lemina, Neves, Nunes, Podence; Sarabia, Cunha.
