What Trueform says for Wolves vs Arsenal
Wolves couldn’t break down a stubborn Brighton defence on Saturday but taking on Arsenal at Molineux may suit their style of play much better.
Wanderers have a great record against big-six teams in the Premier League this term and the Gunners are among the most fragile of that group, especially on the road.
We reckon 37/20 for a home victory is tempting enough to be our initial Wolves vs Arsenal prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves had to endure a frustrating afternoon when stifled by Brighton’s negative tactics here over the weekend, despite having 68 per cent of the possession and 23 attempts on goal.
Diogo Jota hit the woodwork twice for Wanderers, while Mat Ryan denied Leander Dendoncker from point-black range as the hosts slipped to ninth.
Nuno Espirito Santo said: “We had chances, we tried, we had a lot of the ball, it was not to be – it’s just football.
“It’s very difficult to break a team down, we created situations and Brighton defended well. Their main objective was not to concede.
“It’s up to us, we should do better in some moments. It was good goalkeeping, we hit the post, this is the game.”
This should be more open, though, and that does tend to bring the best out of Wolves, who have beaten Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United twice this term.
Wanderers also led for a long time before drawing at Emirates Stadium in November and 21/20 they open the scoring here stands out from the Wolves vs Arsenal odds.
Last Wolves line-up: Patricio, Doherty, Bennett, Boly, Coady, Jonny, Neves, Gibbs-White, Jota, Moutinho, Jimenez.
Leander Dendoncker is pushing for a recall and could replace Morgan Gibbs-White, while defender Ruben Vinagre may also feature from the start after impressing off the bench on Saturday.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal’s hopes of finishing in the top four suffered a blow when they were beaten 3-2 at home by Crystal Palace on Sunday.
Christian Benteke, Wilfried Zaha and James McArthur all found the net for the Eagles, as defender Shkodran Mustafi produced a string of mistakes on a day to forget.
Mesut Ozil and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang replied for the Gunners, but they never looked like pulling off any kind of rescue act.
“It was very frustrating because it was a big opportunity,” said Unai Emery. “I still have confidence, though, and I want to be positive. We have to stand up and prepare for the trip to Wolves.”
Arsenal did manage to win their last away game against Napoli in the Europa League and before that prevailed 1-0 at Watford in this competition.
However, they were far from convincing versus a Hornets outfit reduced to 10 men early on and have suffered seven away defeats since mid-December.
Let’s go with 10/1 for Wanderers to win 2-1 to finish off our Wolves vs Arsenal betting tips.
Last Arsenal line-up: Leno, Koscielny, Mustafi, Jenkinson, Mavropanos, Kolasinac, Elneny, Ozil, Guendouzi, Lacazette, Aubameyang.
Arsenal will hope to have Granit Xhaka available after a hip injury and Sokratis Papastathopoulos returns following a two-match ban.
Barcelona loanee Denis Suarez (groin) remains sidelined, as does Aaron Ramsey (hamstring), as well as long-term absentees Danny Welbeck (ankle), Hector Bellerin and Rob Holding (both knee).
WOLVES 0-0 Brighton
ARSENAL 2-3 Crystal Palace – Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
Head-to-head: Arsenal 1-1 Wolves
