Wolves v Arsenal Match Preview & Predicted Score for final game before WC

Arsenal will be releasing many of their players for international duty after today’s Premier League clash with Wolves, and we will be keen to win to make sure we stay top of the division going into the break.

We come into the match on the back of defeat, having watched Brighton beat our B team in the EFL Cup on Wednesday, but that defeat shouldn’t play on the minds of the players too much. In the Premier League, we have won 11 times from our 13 outings thus far, and deservedly top the table at present (we could be second after Manchester City’s early kick-off has finished).

Our rivals come into the game with torrid form, having won just one of their last eight games in the league, but could be boosted by a change in manager, with former Real Madrid boss Julen Lopetegui having taken over at the beginning of the week.

While Wolves may have their plan to stop us, and us have limited intel into how they will be looking to operate, we can go into this with the intention to play our game, and that should be more than enough.

I can see us winning this one 2-0, with Gabriel Martinelli to show his doubters back in Brazil they are wrong with another goal to add to his tally, and take that confidence into the World Cup squad.

What are your early predictions for today’s clash?

  1. Man city under pressure looking for another dirty penalty to help him. Looks like the payment didn’t go on time, ref having none of it.

    1. Man City just lost 1 2 to Brentford. Gunners on top till after world cup and the gap could be 5 points today. Where’s City squad depth that moaners are always moaning about?
      COYG

        1. He idolises Liverpool too..he keep mention the rangers game…anyone regular reader know this gotahideinthecave love Liverpool trash ranger

    2. It’s same old story for mancity now. Throw all the people in d area and shout for penalty for slight touch and surround the refree in protest. In today’s match it was obvious that these traits are not only being observed by Arsenal fans but also refrees and cancelo was rightly called for diving but he still managed to escape yellow for that. Hat’s off to today’s refree for making one of the best refreeing in recent games. And hats off to Brentford for showing courage against this 11 men mancity n not letting concentration dropping for 1 sec through out the game which is really difficult task. Hope other team will learn from today match and just don’t surrender to them like the cowardice Fulham did last week.

  2. Forget about Brighton on Wednesday it was neither a blip or a dip in form, it’s more of a tempering of the gaffer huge appetite in my opinion.

    A greedy puppy always chokes, we do not have the squad to compete on so many fronts, so I endorse the weakened squad played on Wednesday.

    With Wolves to play later is a much bigger fish to fry,

    Am predicting 2 nil win for Arsenal

  3. A huge opportunity to extend our gap at the top. In past seasons these were the chances we didn’t take and just crumbled.
    COYG let’s show everyone what we are made of.

  4. 7 minutes extra time for mancity game.

    It seems the ref want city to pick the maximum point by all means.

    If city drops 2 points (looking possible),
    Arsenal will play wolves like its all we need to win the league.

    1. Can’t you read your TV screen. It was 10 extra minutes added on, which was correct by the match officials. The match was held up twice. One for a technical issue, and another for a serious head injury.

  5. I am over the moon after City’s loss. I promised myself after watching them win last week to never be invested in watching their games, but only focus on the outcome of our games.

    Thus, I didn’t watch their game but only checked LiveScore for updates. It was 90+6 and scoreline was 1-1. So, I switched off hoping they won’t score the late winner again. Alas, I checked few minutes ago, and found Brentford scored the winner instead 😊

    1. City struggling to breakdown sides, probably temporary but still it is something. Brentford could have easily scored 4, and I think City just had one clear chance in the game.

  6. Thank you Brentford.

    Greeting from Arsenal..

    Southgate should review is English world cup selections and consider Ivan Toney for a call up. It’s not too late..

    1. Kane/Wilson/Toney
      Sterling/Grealish
      Saka/Foden
      Bellingham/Madison/Mount/Gallagher
      Rice/Phillips
      Shaw/any English LB who is fit there were a few options Ryan would have been my choice although not sure he’s fit but any of the options would have been good. Want CB cover then Dan Burn, easy.
      Stones/White/Tomori/Coady/Dier
      Trippier/Trent
      Ramsdale/Pickford/Pope
      Then Henderson added for the experience/leadership.

      Would have been my team with a mind to play 4-3-3 but 5 is an option. Rashford hasn’t done enough and the likes of Madison/Mount could provide extra wing cover. Given that Kane is publically knackered only taking Wilson who has just come back to fitness is weird.

      1. Maddison as been unbelievable recently (scored again today )and should be starting for England but Southgate is too defensive and will probably start with 2 CDM .

  7. Just don’t bottle it Arsenal previously every time results gone our way we have messed up ourselves never get a better opportunity to go 5 points clear must take it to show we are genuine contenders!

  8. I wish Arsenal can sign 2 players in January. Ivan Toney and Tielemans.
    Ivan Toney will ease the goal scoring pressure on Gabriel Jesus. Tielemans is a set piece specialist.

  9. @FootballisTrivial I can’t believe City struggled to create chances and Brentford should have more. I was so disappointed last week with their late winner that I decided not to watch their games again as it seemed the planets often line up in their favor to win games.

    The diving cheat Bernando Silva and the penalty/tap-in merchant Haaland are the two players I can’t stand.

  10. I see no reason Arsenal aren’t interested in Toney. Spurs see him as the successor to Kane if he leaves next summer. Jesus could start on the right in some games while Toney plays as the main striker.

    The only challenge though is reduced playing time for Saka, who we must tie down to a new contract and he would want his contract to reflect he is a key player who starts every game.

    Toney would also want guaranteed starting role which we cannot guarantee, not a squad player, which means we must spend big on wages to tempt him. It’s left to the club to decide but I see Toney as a future England No 1 and having him at Arsenal would be good for his ambition and the club’s aim of winning major silverwares.

    1. Exactly Dendrite. I agree with you 100 percent.

      This season is the season for us to win the league. As it stands, we will be topping the table by Xmas. And the only team in recent times who was on top of the table at Xmas but failed to win the league was Arsenal. We just have to invest in the squad in January.

      Our defense is sorted. But the attack and midfield needs investment.

      70m pounds will get Toney and Tielemans.

      A times, you have to spend more to get what you want.

      After the World Cup, games will be coming thick and fast. If we are to win the Europa league and premier league, we have to field our top players in both competitions.

      We need that squad depth. We need a proven goal scorer who is quick in his thought process.

      I like Nketiah though. But I feel he is not scoring enough. For now, winning the league should be our target.

      If we fail to invest in January, We would have missed a great opportunity. We need more goals. We need another proven goal scorer.

      Viera should be playing further forward(RW/LW backup)

      Tielemans should be signed to rotate with Odegaard. That guy is very precise with his shooting.

      Elneny has the experience to be a back up for Partey. I would rather we sign Tielemans and not Danilo.

  11. Who else is enjoying this Leeds utd team as much as I am.
    When you talk about fighting spirit in football , they epitomise it. We were lucky to get 3 pts against them. They are knicking the scums as I type this.
    Good team .

  12. Boos ringing out in the swamp after the half time whistle, lols.
    They’ll sack conte very soon.

  13. @ Skill1000 The club needs to invest in January on a winger (Gakpo/Mudryk/Zaha) and a CM (Danilo/Tielemans).

    Arteta already sent a strong message to the board with his selection and post-match comments after the Brighton loss. We simply do not have a squad to compete for four trophies. Considering the next round of games in the Carabo Cup is a week after the world cup with a potential two-legged semis in January and final in Feb, it was a wise decision to drop out of it.

    But getting knocked out of the FA Cup at the first round like last season would be totally unacceptable. In a nutshell, we MUST invest in at least one of those 2 positions by January.

    In summer, we can trim the squad down further by loaning out (with option to buy) a player like Lokonga while Elneny can be released. ESR will be like a new signing when he returns in January while Viera would have had a full season under his belt at the end of this season and should be ready to showcase his talent in his second full season. We should not forget he did not have a preseason due to the foot injury he sustained.
