Team News: Wolves
There is just one fitness concern for the Wolves manager Nuno Espírito Santo to be concerned about thanks to an almost full-strength squad. Phil Ofosu-Ayeh (Heel Bone Injury) is out of contention.
In all likelihood, Wolves will probably use a 3-5-2 system for this one featuring Rui Patricio, Romain Saiss, Conor Coady, Willy Boly, Jonny, Joao Moutinho, Rúben Neves, Leander Dendoncker, Matt Doherty, Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez.
Team News: Arsenal
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has a number of players out of action. Lucas Torreira (Ankle Injury) and Bernd Leno (Stretched Ligament) are not ready for selection.
From our viewpoint, The Gunners seem likely to elect for a 3-4-3 lineup, choosing Damian Emiliano Martinez, Shkodran Mustafi, David Luiz, Kieran Tierney, Hector Bellerin, Daniel Ceballos, Granit Xhaka, Bukayo Saka, Nicolas Pepe, Edward Nketiah and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
Our feeling is that Arsenal could find themselves up against it to hit the back of the net against this Wolves lineup who we think might well just have the edge.
With that in mind, we reckon that it will be a very competitive game with a 1-0 winning margin for Wolves at the end of the 90 minutes.
A close call.
