Arsenal travel to the Molineux Stadium on Saturday in order to take on Wolves in the English Premier League. And according to Michael Owen, the Gunners could be staring at yet another defeat.

Arsenal go into this match at the back of a 4-0 win over Norwich City but they will take on Nuno Espirito Santo’s men away from home and according to the pundit, playing away matches has been the Achilles heel for the North London side.

He wrote for BetVictor: “Wolves are the form team in the Premier League and this is a chance for Nuno Espirito Santo and his men to make a statement about their status and ambition.

“Chelsea’s midweek defeat to West Ham will have given Wolves a real boost in their bid to qualify for next season’s Champions League and Raul Jimenez and Adama Traore will be champing at the bit to add to their incredible goals and assists tally – every opposition team knows what to expect when Traore gets the ball out wide and yet nobody seems to be able to stop the inevitable!”

“I mentioned last week that Arsenal are ‘flat-track bullies’ at home against teams from lower in the table and that was proven once again with a 4-0 trouncing of Norwich on Wednesday. However, they continue to look flimsy away from home and there are few tougher places to go at the moment than Molyneux.”

“I do think that Arsenal have a number of really talented players, but the one thing they seem to be missing is a consistent level of performance.

“That will be Mikel Arteta’s focus in the short term as he continues to mould the team into his way of playing.

“Despite the reverse fixture ending in a 1-1 draw, I can see this being another good day’s work for the Wanderers that could see them nine points clear of Arsenal and up into that fourth Champions League qualification spot.”

Arsenal are currently eighth on the league table so if they were to lose to Wolves on Saturday, they might not be even playing in the Europa League next season.

And if this happens then there’s every chance that the manager will not only lose some of his best players but will also find it extremely difficult to lure in the big stars during the upcoming summer transfer window.

The North London side have a great set of attacking players who can carve open any defensive line but their own defenders have produced some of the poorest performances in the whole league this season. So even if Arsenal manage to pick up only a draw at Molineux, it will not be an entirely disappointing result.
