Arsenal vs Wolves
English Premier League
Date: Sunday, 11th November 2018
Kick-off at 16:30 UK/ 17:30 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium, London.
This is one of the interesting fixtures this weekend as these two sides lock horns for the first time in 6 years. Arsenal pays the host at the Emirates against the Wolves on Sunday evening.
In the recent past, the Gunners have been enjoying excellent team form. They remain unbeaten in their last 15 matches in all competitions. On Thursday evening, they failed to win their home Europa League fixture against Portugal’s Sporting Lisbon.
They will return into the EPL scene at a time they are striving to climb to the top three. With the look of things, they will aim to bag al 3 points in this home fixture. It is unfortunate that Danny Welbeck to suffer a serious ankle injury on Thursday night and will face a long spell out. Moreover, Stephan Lichtsteiner picked up a muscle problem in the 0-0 draw. Mesut Özil, Lucas Torreira, Shkodran Mustafi, Hector Bellerin, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette, and Mesut Ozil were among those who did not start against Sporting and will be in the Starting XI here.
Wolves will be coming into this matchup in low spirits having been beaten in their last 3 consecutive EPL matches. Last weekend, we saw them excel against Tottenham Spurs in a thrilling matchup that ended 2-3. It is a high time that the Wolves bounced back to their winning ways. Nevertheless, they may not be able to do so in this away fixture since they are facing a stronger home side.
Notably, the wolves have not scored more than one goal in their away fixtures this season. Even more, Nuno Santo’s men have also failed to score in four of their last five matches away to Arsenal and this matchup may not be any different. As they hit the road to the Emirates, they have a clean bill of health.
