Arsenal are aiming for an upturn of fortunes as they lock horns with Wolves at Molineux on Thursday. The Gunners are coming on the back of a wretched January that saw them fail to secure a single win while being eliminated from both the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup. With the team slowly losing ground in the race for the top four, three points could be the need of the hour for Mikel Arteta and company.

Wolves, in contrast, enjoyed a favourable January, winning all of their four fixtures in all competitions, including a 1-0 victory over Manchester United. However, the Midlands outfit resumed their campaign with a shocking 1-0 defeat to Norwich City. But that shouldn’t hold back Bruno Lage and his men as they look to continue their winning ways in the Premier League.

Talking Tactics

Wolves

Bruno Lage should persist with his tried and tested 3-5-2 formation, with the two wingbacks providing the useful width going forward. The two attackers will look to put pressure on the Arsenal centre-backs, potentially creating turnovers in the dangerous areas of the pitch.

Arsenal

Mikel Arteta is unlikely to shift from his 4-2-3-1 setup that will look to remain disciplined in defence whilst offering threat in the final third. The creative trifecta behind the main striker Alexandre Lacazette could be integral behind their gameplan, as they look to breach the Wolves line.

Team News

Wolves

Wolves may miss out on quite a few first-team players including two important attackers in Pedro Neto and Hwang Hee-chan. They are joined by Willy Bolly, Yerson Mosquera and Jonny in the club’s list of players that could miss out on the game against Arsenal.

Arsenal

Arsenal are likely to have Cedric Soares back from injury. The Portuguese international is likely to deputise for Takehiro Tomiyasu, who may miss out, with Arteta giving no hint on his fitness. The Gunners have no other injuries as such, giving Arteta the privilege to choose from an almost fully fit squad.

Predicted Lineups

Wolves: Sa; Kilman, Coady, Saiss; Semedo, Dendoncker, Neves, Moutinho, Ait Nouri; Jimenez, Podence

Arsenal: Ramsdale; Cedric, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli

Wolves 0-0 Arsenal
