Arsenal will be looking for their league win in almost a month when they host Wolves at the Emirates Stadium.
It’s a hard time to be an Arsenal fan. There seem to be issues on the field, off the field, fans provoking their own captain, star player Ozil barely being featured… what next!
Wolves arrive at a perfect time as they look to capitalise on the Gunners’ woes and earn just their third win of the season.
After a bit of a bleak start to the campaign, Wolverhampton are rising thought the standings and could jump as high as 6th place with a win (depending on other results and goal difference).
For Arsenal, this is a huge game. With all the problems arising, the club is beginning to lose ground on the top four. Chelsea and Leicester have built a four point gap between themselves and the Gunners which may very well increase come the end of the weekend.
Interestingly, you have to go all the back to 2012 in order to find Arsenal’s last win over Wolves. What’s more, you’d have to go a year before that to find their last home win over Nuno Santo’s side.
Last season, the East Midlands side claimed an impressive 3-1 home win and an encouraging 1-1 draw at Emirates.
Speaking of draws, Wolves have already wracked up six in ten games in the Premier League – more than any other club.
A draw in the betting is currently well priced at 13/5 and this is, without a doubt, a valuable bet. However, our recommendation goes a step further. We’re going for a draw and both teams to score at a massive 4/1.
