Arsenal picked up a 4-0 win vs Norwich City in the English Premier League and finally, it seems like things are getting back on track for the Gunners.

Arsenal have managed to pick up back-to-back wins in the league but all that effort could go down the drain as they take on Wolves away from home this weekend.

The Gunners are undefeated in 12 of their last 13 matches against Wolves in all competitions but the home side have not lost a single match in their previous six outings while Mikel Arteta’s men have lost two of their last four league matches since the restart.

Arteta does have a long list of injury absentees but the manager is expected to get back the services of some players this weekend meaning he can rotate his starting XI if he wishes to.

Arsenal team news vs Wolves:

Bernd Leno is ruled out for the remainder of the season meaning Martinez will start in goal while Mikel Arteta should opt for a three-man defensive line once again.

David Luiz and Msutafi will hopefully keep their places in the starting line-up while Sead Kolasinac will move to the bench in order to make way for Sokratis.

Lucas Torreira has returned to training and will be available for selection this week but we do not think the South American will get to start since Xhaka and Dani Ceballos have been working pretty well in central midfield during the past few matches.

Matteo Guendouzi has fallen down the pecking order and the Frenchman will once again start on the bench.

Mesut Ozil will go through a late fitness test before the clash vs Wolves but even if he is deemed fit, at best the playmaker will find a place on the bench and not in the first XI.

Reiss Nelson put in a fine shift on the right flank vs the Canaries but Nicolas Pepe will probably come into the side to replace the youngster.

Lacazette has been really underwhelming all throughout this season and it should not come as a surprise to see him being replaced Eddie Nketiah upfront.

With Gabriel Martinelli ruled out for the remainder of the season, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will keep his place in the starting line-up.

Arsenal’s predicted XI vs Wolves:

Predicted starting XI: Martinez; Mustafi, David Luiz, Sokratis; Xhaka, Dani Ceballos, Tierney, Hector Bellerin; Nelson/Pepe, Lacazette/Nketiah, Aubameyang.
