Arsenal are once again in a battle to secure a top four finish with a testing trip to Wolves awaiting them today 23rd April 2019.
A shock home defeat to Crystal Palace on Sunday leaves the Gunners in fourth place, level on points with Chelsea who can move ahead of their London rivals with a win at home to Burnley on Monday night.
Manchester United sit just two points adrift in sixth and with just four games of the season remaining, Arsenal cannot afford another slip up.
It is on the road where they have been prone to doing just that this season however and in Wolves, they are up against opposition who have the best record in the league against the top six.
Aaron Ramsey remains sidelined with a hamstring injury that may have already ended his Arsenal career ahead of his summer switch to Juventus.
Granit Xhaka missed Sunday’s defeat to Palace as a precaution but is likely to be in contention to return at Molineux.
Arsenal XI: Leno, Koscielny, Mustafi, Monreal, Maitland-Niles, Xhaka, Torreira, Kolasinac, Mkhitartyan, Lacazette, Aubameyang
Wolves XI: Patricio, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Doherty, Dendoncker, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny, Jimenez, Jota
Score prediction: Wolves 1-1 Arsenal
Just as Arsenal found some resolve away from home with that valuable win away to Watford, that progress was forgotten after Sunday’s defeat to Palace.
Both Spurs and Liverpool left Molineux with all three points but Wolves’ record against top six teams remains a huge stumbling block for the Gunners to overcome.
