Wolves have one big advantage over Arsenal ahead of game tomorrow

Arsenal has renewed their top five challenge after winning their last two league matches.

They will face a tough test next when they visit a Wolves side that remains the only team that has won all their games since the restart.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side has also kept a clean sheet in each of those games, and they remain a major threat in Arsenal’s bid to finish in a European place this season.

Ahead of the game at the Molineux Stadium, the fitness level of both teams has been confirmed.

FourFourTwo reports that the Wanderers will have a fully fit team to face Arsenal with no new injury concerns.

However, Mikel Arteta’s side has been ravaged by injuries since the restart with key players like Pablo Mari out for the long-term.

Lucas Torreira is fit for this game as the Uruguayan makes a comeback from a long injury layoff, however, it remains to be seen if Arteta will hand him a chance to play in the game.

Mesut Ozil is a doubt for this game, while, Mari (ankle), Bernd Leno, Gabriel Martinelli and Calum Chambers (all knee) will all miss this game for the Gunners.

Basically, due to injuries, Wolves carry a huge advantage into the game tomorrow.

    No advantage and no disadvantage, apart from Leno, there is no cause for alarm, meanwhile, the deputy is equal to the task. So , no advantage, we only need to beat them 0-1 or 1-2. Period

    A fitness advantage , not to mention as a realist would, that they have a far better team too. That is why they are well above us.

      Thank u, they win all games!

      1. Mogunna says:

        They play to win, with great tac tic

    Glorious dream comment! But article is about reality, highlighting :

    – A team that not conceiding a goal. Meaning defending very well.

    – A team winning all 3 points & games, meaning winning mentality.

    – If I may add; top 3 coach in EPL this season, great tac tic, experience and focused on winning games.

    – And a team playing a great and dangerous football.

    Therefore, indeed, we must get back to reality for those who got hyped up by Brighton win.

    Great article, just watch out with “top 5 being at reach” quote, not before next 3 games.

    We are 6 points behind Man U 5th spot and 4 points above 13th spot with Spurs, Everton right behind us, next 3 fixtures can’t reassure.

    Anyone can remind us our next 3 to 5 games?

    Anyway, I think we have a chance to draw or win with proper line up and tac tic. It is no way to tell with Arteta.

    …………………….Martinez
    Bellerin Mustafi Holding Tierny
    ………………………..Luiz

    If he plays Luiz as CB we lose, if Luiz is positioned as a DM infront of CBs, that area is more solid and secured as he still has CBs behind and can be very helpful in ceratin defensive aspect. Then of course he has great passing and can push team higher up on the pitch.

    This gives many options in middle and attack, and mainly allow them to focus in attacking, not if we are beat down in that central defense zone.

    …………………Luiz.
    …..Niles………………Saka .
    ………………..Ozil
    …….Nketiah Auba

    I like that, solid & flying team, Ozil combinin in middle & feeding attacks…. We holding that ball and this 2 upfront, nightmare to defend in center and combining.

    Luiz there gives many options as pointed, this is one, we must be solid and lethal.

    1. Gwin says:

      If we set up like this, we will get a hiding. Luis, Niles, Saka and Ozil in midfield; Tell me it is a joke.

      1. Mogunna says:

        Saka more in attacking role, bombing that flank with Tierny

        Niles defensive and combining play will allow Bellerin to fly on his wing and Niles can fly as well for sure, B2B. That flank will be interesting.

        Of course with no holes in HS back, Ozil can play his game, or he can’t, an article pointed it well, he is useless without a strong back up behind him to allow him to play his game.

        Luiz is good in this role, Arteta will have on team anyhow, better off be useful and not scary. This is one of EPL best attacking field…

      It is good to dream

  4. Gwin says:

    Injuries? The injured persons there are Leno and Martinelli. Ozil does not count. A case can be made for chambers and Mari but they are well covered.

  5. Mogunna says:

    …………………….Martinez
    Bellerin Mustafi Holding Tierny
    ……………………………LUIZ
    ……………Niles…………………..Saka
    …………………………..OZIL
    …………………Auba – Nketiah

    We win or draw at worst. We lose or draw at best if Luiz
    played as CB. Wolves are way to fast and dangerous!

  6. Wenger91 says:

    Look at the table and the results. Wolves only lost 6 games “Liverpool 2” and Man city, united and Arsenal 8!

    They have a good team, deserves to be in Europe and I think they are so ready to fight for that!

    Now us, personally I don’t want Europe as much as I want to rebuild our team, let’s win the game because they are so good and we deserve a boost for FA.

    I’m seeing a draw, unless Auba and Pepe were in mood to make a huge difference in this game with Ceballos behind and in mood to create some good plays like he did with Norwich.

    I think this formation will be MA’s favorite for the next matches:

    Martinez

    Mustafi Holding Teirney

    Cedric Ceballos Xhaka. Saka

    Pepe. Nkeitah. Auba

    1. Mogunna says:

      Interesting solid line up, no Luiz, smart thing with such dangerous attacking threat infront of us…

    2. ozziegunner says:

      👍

  7. Mogunna says:

    Close or as last game’s team…

  8. Glorious says:

    Luiz will start, holding will be on the bench. And we will win

  9. Lisa says:

    Next time anyone gets in touch with Arteta, ask him WHEN Guendouzi will be back, please?

    I’ve been following up on this saga since the Brighton incident, and while reportedly our No. 29 is parking his behind at the Emirates, it would be nice to actually see him in a few games and get involved in the goalscoring. (Then again, Guendouzi is always involved in the celebrations. He carries his heart on his sleeve and is very passionate ♥️).

  10. ozziegunner says:

    Wolverhampton Wanderers – better defensively, more consistent over the season, more settled line up and playing with confidence under a very good coach/manager.
    That is not to say Arsenal can’t win, if they turn up, are committed, apply themselves and play to their potential. After all the game is a two horse race.
