Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton
Wolves welcome Arsenal to Molineux for this rearranged Premier League week 31 midweek fixture.
Wolves have lost their last two games going into this weekend’s game with Brighton and Hove Albion. A 3-1 loss away to Southampton followed a deflating 3-2 extra time defeat to Watford in the FA Cup semi-final.
Arsenal beat Watford 1-0 to warm up for their game with Napoli midweek before they host Crystal Palace at the weekend. The Gunners did, however, lose their last away game in the Premier League 1-0 to Everton and have won just two of their last 11 roads games in the league.
Wanderers suffered a hangover in their first game after losing their FA Cup semi-final tie with Watford when they lost to The Saints – and will need to motivate themselves for the rest of the season or there is the very likely probability that they could down tools and see out the season in midtable.
Arsenal have a crunch Europa League quarter-final second leg away to Napoli before this game and that game could have a huge bearing on their top four aspirations – as any progress in that competition could see them lose ground with their Champions League qualification rivals Chelsea and Manchester United in the in the league. A 2-2 draw is well worth a shout.
The draw is available
The first game this season played between these sides at the Emirates Stadium ended as a 1-1 draw and there could possibly be another stalemate in this one.
Total goals over 3.5
Arsenal have only conceded once in their last six games going into their match with Napoli – a good record that will no doubt have been changed by time they travel to Molineux with games against the Italians and Crystal Palace coming up.
Wolves on the other hand will want to take another big Premier League team’s scalp at home and that could be why the bookies are offering odds for the over 3.5 goals scored market.
