Wolves vs Arsenal predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Premier League fixture tonight


Arsenal travel to Wolves tonight hoping to build on a strong run of form in the Premier League.

The hosts, meanwhile, have gone eight league games without a win, falling to 14th and performing well below expectations.

And they will be tested again as a resurgent Arsenal visit Molineux. The Gunners, after a poor start to the season, have climbed into the top half after a run of seven league games without losing.

Wolves beat Mikel Arteta’s side earlier in the season, though, so this is hardly likely to be a routine win for Arsenal.

Here is everything you need to know.

Team news

Wolves are concerned over the fitness of Romain Saiss, who was absent for the defeat against Crystal Palace last time out. Rayan Ait-Nouri is also out after picking up an injury at Chelsea last week.

Arsenal have several potential issues ahead of this game. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a doubt having left the first-team bubble to visit his unwell mother. This has left the striker forced to quarantine and it is unclear if he will be available for today’s match.  

Bukayo Saka and Kieran Tierney, after missing the goalless draw with Manchester United, are also doubtful, while Dani Ceballos and Pablo Mari could return.

Predicted line-ups

WOL: Patricio; Boly, Coady, Kilman, Hoever, Dendoncker, Neves, Semedo, Neto, Traore, Jose

ARS: Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Luiz, Cedric, Partey, Xhaka, Pepe, Smith Rowe, Martinelli, Lacazette

When is the match?

The game will kick off at 6pm on Tuesday, 2 February at Molineux.

Where can I watch it?

The match will be shown live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultimate. Subscribers can stream the game via the BT Sport app.

Odds

Wolves – 12/5

Draw – 23/10

Arsenal – 6/5

Prediction

Wolves, despite their poor form, are rarely beaten easily at Molineux, and this will be a real test for Mikel Arteta’s developing Arsenal team, particularly with a couple of key players likely to be missing. Wolves 1-1 Arsenal.
