Wolverhampton Wanderers v Arsenal - Football Live Match Preview

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Arsenal

Arsenal will be looking to get their top-four hopes back on track when they visit Wolves in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Defeats to Everton and Crystal Palace over recent weeks have contributed to the Gunners slipping out of the top-four positions, although a draw on Wednesday would be enough to see them move back above Chelsea and into fourth place.
However, that will be easier said than done as Arsenal's record on the road has not been great over recent months, as they have only won two of their last 10 top-flight games on the road.
The Gunners will also be facing a Wolves side with an impressive home record, as Nuno Espirito Santo’s team are unbeaten in their last nine matches at Molineux, a run that stretches back to the start of January.
Indeed, only Crystal Palace, Newcastle and Brighton have left Molineux with any points since the turn of the year and Wolves also boast a highly impressive record against top-six sides this season, as they have picked up points on a regular basis, including when they earned a 1-1 draw at the Emirates in November.
Nuno will also have a fully-fit squad to choose from on Wednesday, with Belgian international midfielder Leander Dendoncker pushing for a recall having only been used as a substitute during Saturday's goalless draw with Brighton.
Arsenal will have defender Sokratis Papastathopoulos available once again following a domestic suspension, although hamstring and groin injuries mean Aaron Ramsey and Denis Suarez remain on the sidelines, while Granit Xhaka is a doubt with a hip problem.
