Wolves vs Arsenal: Match details
Match: Wolves vs Arsenal
Competition: Premier League
Date: February 2, 2021
Kick-off time: 6:00 pm, February 2, 2021 (UK time)
Stadium: Molineux Stadium
Betting prediction: Wolves 0-1 Arsenal
A perfect storm for a nippy affair at the Molineux. Wolves have struggled to consistently find the back of the net this term, while Arsenal remain inconsistent in the same area of play; their 0-0 draw with Manchester United is a perfect example of this.
With a few questions around who is available for their matchday XI, Arsenal can perhaps rely on their better form overall to see them over the line in a tricky affair that showcases a 2-2-2 record of results between the pair over their previous six meetings.
Wolves vs Arsenal: Recommended bets
Halftime/Full-Time: Draw – Arsenal
Wolves like to keep things interesting, especially against bigger sides. They’re far less likely to be expansive in their play and will hope to keep it tight at the back against an Arsenal-side that still lack consistency in-front of goal. Arsenal to edge it out in the second frame.
Arsenal to win to nil vs Wolves
As referenced above, Wolves usually keep things close against bigger opposition. Their own struggles in front of goal go hand-in-hand with a Gunners-side that have kept five clean sheets in their last six Premier League outings.

Wolves vs Arsenal: Match preview
The state of affairs in the West Midlands at Wolves has yet to improve, to the shock of many. Lauded for their approach – especially against tougher opposition – and strong recruitment under Nuno Espirito Santo with Jorge Mendes’ influence, this is hardly the same Wolves that were once the talk of the town after winning promotion back in 2018.
On paper, Nuno Espirito Santo is still able to call upon a very formidable full-strength XI, but on a tactical level Wolves have been exposed for their lack of genuine creativity. Their once-vaunted direct approach on the counter has given-way to a system that has featured more freedom on the ball for players like Daniel Podence and Pedro Neto. In truth, Wolves have not adapted their game to suit an ever-expansive Premier League.
Much of the same can perhaps be said for their reliance on Diogo Jota, Raúl Jiménez, and Adama Traoré in previous seasons. With Jota now plying his trade in Liverpool, Jiménez out with a long-term injury, and Traoré lacking the consistency he did previously, the onus has fallen squarely on Podence and Neto. It is not nearly enough.
Nuno has now presided over a Wolves side who have failed to win any of their previous eight Premier League fixtures, and just one win since the first of December, 2020. Taking something from Arsenal is a must considering upcoming clashes with Leicester City, Southampton, and Leeds United.
Arsenal must continue to roll-on
Arsenal are on a roll in the Premier League.
Five wins and two draws in their previous seven league fixtures – and just two goals allowed in the process – sees them second in the form table behind a rampant Manchester City. To go along with their joint-second-best defensive record in the Premier League (also behind City), their fourteen goals in those same recent seven fixtures constitutes fifty-four percent of their season total, in just one-third of the campaign’s outings. Times are good in London N7.
The Gunners have done a complete 180-degree turn in comparison to the opening exchanges of the 2020-21 Premier League season. After four wins from their opening seven fixtures (three losses), Arsenal posted a 0-2-5 record that saw them flirting with the possibility of dropping into the bottom three for a period. Times were dire, but their recent form has exhibited improvement in all areas of the pitch at a period of the season where many sides around them in the table are struggling for consistency.
Wolves have been a tricky side to negotiate for the Gunners since coming back to the top of the English footballing ladder, but there is no better time to travel to the West Midlands than right now. It’s unclear who will be available come Tuesday night, but the key for Mikel Arteta is to hammer home the importance of keeping faith in what has been working as they have strung together credible performances over the last four-week period. If little changes, targeting the full point haul on their midweek travels should be seen as a very achievable target.
Wolves team news vs Arsenal
Nuno Espirito Santo remains without the services of Marçal, Jonny, Raúl Jiménez, and Rayan Aït-Nouri.
As it stands, Romain Saïss is a doubt, but could be re-introduced into the matchday XI in the run-up to Tuesday evening.
Rúben Neves is expected to miss out on selection due to the birth of his child.
Arsenal team news vs Wolves
Bukayo Saka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang have both returned to full training, though it is unclear if they will be given a run-out on Tuesday evening.
Kieran Tierney, Pablo Marí, and Dani Ceballos are all questions for the trip to Wolves, though it’s assumed that Tierney will start if fit.
New loan-signing Martin Ødegaard could be given a run-out in-place of Emile Smith Rowe, who has started seven of the Gunners’ last eight matches.
Alexandre Lacazette could also potentially be rested following a clash of heads with Harry Maguire on Saturday, though Mikel Arteta said he expects him to be available.
