Arsenal v Wolves match preview and score prediction

Arsenal to get the better of Wolves in a tight game

For Unai Emery, this could be his biggest game since he became the Arsenal manager. Bigger than the Europa League final even simply because if Arsenal loses this game he would be one step closer to losing his job.

The chances are he survives a loss today but with Leicester City next, the pressure will be immense. I would suggest unbearable.

The thing is this, Arsenal has the players to be able to take care of teams like Wolves, especially at home but for some reason, they just cannot play a balanced game.

The forward line is formidable, no denying that but the defence and midfield are nowhere near the level required. The defence, as we all know, is as suspect as it comes and the midfield is generally not fit for purpose.

Arsenal cannot take the attitude that they will outscore the opponents. For starters, the midfield simply does not create enough and the forwards cannot do it on their own.

But there is hope on the horizon.

Ozil appears revitalised and he could well be the creative spark required from the middle of the park. Down the flanks, Kieran Tierney will get better the more games he plays and Hector Bellerin is very close to being at the top of his game.

If Emery can get the wing backs and midfield more creative then Arsenal will roll over teams like Wolves. The problem appears to be that the manager is unable to instil that creative spark into the team.

Wolves are dangerous, the showed that at the Etihad against Man City. They defend well, they are quick on the counter and have players that can open up any defence.

The bottom line for me is that if Arsenal can provide a decent service for their forwards and defend better then they will win.

If Wolves contain the Arsenal forward line and counter on a regular basis, they could win. It really is as simple as that.

I have confidence that Arsenal will turn up today and will emerge the winners but it will be tight.

Predicted Score

Arsenal 3-2 Wolves


  1. Hardave Singh says:

    We’ll have a comfortable win with Ozil in the starting line up. I guarantee it. Astrologers confirmed it.

  2. Sue says:

    A predicted 3-2… not sure my ticker can take it 🤣

    Ian Wright and Roman Kemp have been confirmed for I’m a celebrity get me out of here 😍🤩🥳👍

  3. ThirdManJW says:

    Cannot see us winning this at all! 2-2 at best, but I’m going with 2-3 to Wolves.

    The upside to another embarrassment, maybe a new manager new week.

    1. jon fox says:

      For a new manager, it would be well worth losing 2-3. It will happen anyway by the seasons end and I SEE NO POINT IN WAITING TIL THEN.

  4. Mulinzi says:

    we will edge them. 3-1 to the arsenal. also Gabriel to score if he starts. i haue a feeling this could be pepe’s day.

  5. Abel says:

    Brace yourselves for another heartbreak. Wolves are the worst team we could face in our present form. They are structured to defend well, absorb pressure and counter with speed and precision. Our build up will be too slow to trouble wolves and we would undoubtedly gift them scoring opportunities due to our contact-less marking, unforced errors and calamitous playing out of the back routine.

  6. Innit says:

    3-0 or better
    Feel positive about this match

    Any win is fine with me
    A win is a win and 3 points

  7. Mogunna says:

    Can’t make score prediction without seeing team picked, unfortunately we can only predict same thing, players Emery will pick. That does allow us to predict the worst and hope for a miracle win or draw nowdays.

    Take a wild guess on central defense, haha, sorry, not funny, hurting each EPL game. Okay Sokra & Luiz.

    In middle? Gendouzi, Ozil, Torreira or will Emery play Xhaka to unite fans and team?

    A good topic would be to ask if Xhaka should start? Either ways, as long as Chambers is not played as a DM, we will not find balance with weak defense, no control in middle which is key in modern football, to have players good with the ball doesn’t mean control middle, but right balance allows to do so and benefit with ball players…
    Even Luiz will be useful as DM,

    That idiotic coach still doesn’t get it, Chambers was MVP last year as a DM! Can someone wake this man up!

    1. GunnerJack says:

      Mogunna – Even without seeing the team he chooses it’s got to be better than usual with no Xhaka. Granted he can still play Kolasinac instead of Tierney and also play Torreira out of position but we will at least be playing with the midfield handbrake off for a change. I too wouldn’t mind seeing Chambers as DM if Torreira not chosen there.

  8. ben proper says:

    unfortunately the pressure from fans has reduced on pepe… Xhaka is the topic.
    its pepe vs Wolverhampton today

  9. jon fox says:

    I certainly see both sides scoring and would not be at all surprised if 3-2 is correct. I would take it in a heartbeat and suspect almost all Gooners would too.
