Arsenal will look to extend their winning run to four games in all competitions as they take on Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday. The Gunners are coming on the back of a 4-0 win over Norwich City in midweek, and this could be an excellent opportunity for them to bridge the gap from their weekend opponent, who currently hold a six-point lead.
Predicted Arsenal Lineup Vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
Mikel Arteta is unlikely to make too many changes to the side that had secured an emphatic win over Norwich City in the last game. However, Rob Holding is most likely to return to the side, at the expense of Sead Kolasinac, who hasn’t quite been able to establish himself in the three-man backline.
Shkodran Mustafi had an odd game against Norwich City, but, he is guaranteed to get the nod ahead of Sokratis, thus forming the three-man back line alongside David Luiz and Holding.
Luiz, in particular, was excellent in the last game and would look for another impressive performance as the Brazilian eyes a redemption after signing a one-year extension at Arsenal.
And finally, Emiliano Martinez is a guaranteed starter in the between the sticks. The Argentine has fit in really well, following the injury of Bernd Leno and he will be looking to continue his excellent run of form this weekend.
Arteta will not make any alteration in central midfield, where Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos have built a solid partnership. Xhaka, in particular, is finally showing some leadership qualities and his aggression could be pivotal, coming up against a Wolves side known for their athleticism. As for Ceballos, his presence in midfield could be critical in the approach play, especially with Mesut Ozil yet to play since the restart.
Elsewhere, Cedric Soares made quite an impression, notably scoring a goal in his debut for Arsenal. He is an option at right wing-back, but manager Arteta is likely to persist with Hector Bellerin while Kieran Tierney is more than expected to get the nod ahead of Bukayo Saka on the opposite flank.
Alexandre Lacazette did not disappoint at all, in the game against Norwich City. And his experience and work-rate could be critical against the Wolves. Hence, he is likely to spearhead the Arsenal attack this weekend, ahead of Eddie Nketiah.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is also set to retain his place at left-wing, having scored two goals in the last game. But, we may see one change in attack, with the in-form Nicolas Pepe replacing Reiss Nelson on the right flank.
