What is the team news?

Bukayo Saka will definitely be available after being taken off late in Arsenal's draw at Leeds with a dead leg. David Luiz will also be available for selection after his wife gave birth last week and Willian is hoping to be return from a muscular problem. It remains to be seen of Thomas Partey will be available after missing the trip to Leeds with a thigh strain.

For Wolves, Conor Coady should be back after he was unable to train before the Southampton game due to Covid-19 protocol. Romain Saiss also missed that game due to a positive test while left wing-back Jonny is a long-term absentee. 

What have we said about the clubs?

Nicolas Pepe misses the game due to suspension, and Daniel Zeqiri analysed why Arsenal's record signing is struggling to fit in under Mikel Arteta:

Leeds harried Arsenal into playing a whopping 42 long balls at Elland Road, just 10 of which were successful. Incredibly, Pepe competed in more attacking aerial duels than any player on the pitch, winning three of six, which shows the supply line was hardly tailored to his strengths. 

John Percy reports that Wolves are confident about Adama Traore signing a new contract:

Negotiations are currently at an impasse with Traore over a long-term deal, with Wolves keen for the £18 million signing to follow Nuno, captain Conor Coady, Raul Jimenez and Pedro Neto in committing his future to the club.Traore, the Spain international, has become frustrated over a lack of first-team opportunities this season.

  • Arsenal 21/20

  • Draw 23/10 

What's our prediction?

Both teams have scored just nine goals this season and won just one of their last four league matches, so this might not be a classic. Since Wolves returned to the Premier League, both matches at the Emirates have been draws but we fancy Arsenal might just squeeze through this one for a much-needed three points.

Verdict: Arsenal 1 Wolves 0
