Preview: Still nine points clear of the Premier League’s relegation zone, can Wolves, enduring their longest wait for a league victory since returning to the top-flight more than three years ago, finally come good against an Arsenal side no doubt keen on extending their fine run of form in the competition?

Wolves – Poor form looks set to continue? 

In the aftermath of Saturday’s 1-0 loss at Selhurst Park to Crystal Palace that stretched the club’s barren run in the Premier League to eight matches without a win (D3 L5), Nuno Espirito Santo conceded that his team were enduring their worst period under his management. This Tuesday sees them confront a fixture which, arguably, can be traced back to being the root cause for their current malaise.

Since a 2-1 victory at Emirates Stadium on 29 November, a game which saw talismanic forward Raul Jimenez sustain a serious head injury that continues to keep him out of action, Wolves (W6 D5 L10) have won only one of eleven league fixtures while scoring at a rate of less than a goal a game. In fact, they have failed to score in seven of their 21 league outings so far – one fewer than they managed in the whole of 2019/20.

Offensive reinforcements have been made, with Willian Jose making his debut last time out after signing on loan from Real Sociedad, however, even their once famed resiliency in defence has deserted them. Wanderers’ sole clean sheet in their last 14 league games coming in last Wednesday’s dour affair at Stamford Bridge with Chelsea, which ended goalless and without Wolves mustering a single shot on target.


Arsenal to keep a Clean Sheet



Arsenal – Improved results down to defensive solidity?

A sixth successive league game without defeat against Manchester United, after a rather uninspiring encounter at the Emirates ended goalless on Saturday, meant Arsenal (W9 D4 L8) extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League to seven (W5 D2). During this spell, Mikel Arteta’s side have drastically improved all facets of their game, netting 14 times, giving up only two goals, and keeping five clean sheets.

The Gunners can be expected to bolster all three of those categories when they travel to Molineux in midweek to face this out-of-sorts Wolves outfit. Moreover, this is a venue which has served the North Londoner side well in the past, prevailing here on five of six occasions since 2004, having won last season’s corresponding fixture 2-0 courtesy of a third clean sheet in their past four trips to the West Midlands.

Complicating matters, however, is an absentee list that at the weekend featured Kieran Tierney, Bukayo Saka and Pierre-Emerick Aubamyang. All three had found form but must now be considered doubtful for a fourth competitive encounter inside ten day for Arsenal, who are looking to win for the fourth consecutive away league game following recent triumphs away at Brighton, Southampton and West Brom.

Wolves Vs Arsenal Betting Advice

These two teams combined for just one point and zero goals scored during the weekend’s round of top-flight action, Wolves losing 1-0 away to Crystal Palace as Arsenal ground out a goalless draw at home to Manchester United. It leaves the former winless in eight league matches (D3 L5) – their longest such run since returning to the Premier League in 2017-18 – and the latter unbeaten in the competition in seven (W5 D2).


Wolves Vs Arsenal – Key Facts:

  • Since beating Arsenal 2-1 away from home on 29 November, Wolves have won one of their 11 Premier League games (W1 D3 L7) and scored 10 goals.
  • Seven league games without defeat (W5 D2) for Arsenal ahead of their encounter at Molineux, a ground they have earned a win at on five of their six visits in the Premier League.
  • Of the previous seven top-flight meetings, only one saw the home team pick up all three points. Meanwhile, Wolves have failed to score on three of the past four meetings as the home side.


With goals drying up markedly for the home side since losing last season’s top scorer to injury in November’s reverse fixture, and with Arsenal coming a long way defensively recently, a tight, potentially low-scoring encounter is a real possibility. Wolves have lost the last two here but have gone unbeaten against the likes of Chelsea and Chelsea, while Arsenal could be missing key players. The draw is plausible.
