Wolves come up against visiting side Arsenal in a Premier League fixture this coming Thursday at Molineux Stadium. Wolves won the last two meetings against The Gunners in the Premier League by a comfortable margin. A 2-1 win was the follow-up to a 2-1 win in another entertaining encounter.

Both Wolves and The Gunners have played the same number of league matches this campaign. While the hosts occupy number eight with 34 points after 21 rounds, the guests sit as number six in the Premier League standings. The current gap between the two sides is two points.

Both Wolves and Arsenal go into the match on the back of decent results recently. Both will be eager to continue their good run, but with the advantage of playing on home soil, Wolves could prove too tough a task for Arsenal.

Wolves are relatively average in the art of goal-scoring these days as the hosts on Thursday claimed a steady eight goals in their previous 10 matches. An average of 0.8 goals per game. They simultaneously allowed their opponents four goals, or an average of 0.4 goals a game and they clawed out a clean sheet six times in this run.

The Gunners enter their next Premier League match, averaging a highly satisfactory two goals per game in their last 10 matches in which, they scored a presentable total of 20 goals, while also conceding 12 goals. That amounts to an average of 1.2 per game, in which they kept their opponents from scoring five times.

Wolves vs Arsenal Preview

Wolves Form

Wolves are looking to bounce back from a recent setback and get back to winning ways. In their last three matches, they first took out Southampton by 3-1, before downing Brentford by 2-1. The winning streak came to an end against Norwich, who ran out 1-0 winners. Wolves claimed a middle-of-the-road three wins in their previous six matches on home soil. They post a record of 3-2-1 in these six encounters, with a scoreline reading 6-3.

Arsenal Form

Arsenal have been a tad mediocre in their last three matches where a win has failed to come their way. Against Liverpool, they gained a point in a 0-0 draw, before coming up short against Liverpool again, who ran out 2-0 winners. Lately, they managed to steal a point in a 0-0 with Burnley. Arsenal won three of a possible six away matches on their way to a 3-0-3 record. They outscored their last six opponents 14-10.

Wolves are among the three least scoring home teams in the Premier League this season. They scored a mediocre eight goals at the Molineux Stadium, while also conceding eight.

Wolves have taken 10 points from their last nine games against teams from the top half of the Premier League table. They won three of these matches with an accumulated scoreline of 3-5. Arsenal have taken 10 points from their last nine games against teams from the top half of the Premier League table. They won six, scored 10 goals and conceded eight.

Form is not impressive for Arsenal, but we don't quite trust Wolves enough to jump at the home win without backing it with a draw. Those finding the price with the bookmakers a bit too low, might chose the draw-no-bet solution in stead.

Wolves vs Arsenal - Team News

Wolves might be looking at five missing players for their upcoming assignment against Arsenal.

Willy Boly, Hee-Chan Hwang, Yerson Mosquera, Pedro Neto and Jonny are all absent from the Wolves squad that faces Arsenal at Molineux Stadium.

Worst-case scenario, Arsenal have a total of five players out for their next match. For instance, Arsenal won't be able to field Gabriel as he serves out a ban following too many cards.

Takehiro Tomiyasu, Cedric Soares, Folarin Balogun and Mohamed Elneny are among the four players unlikely to feature for Arsenal, when they travel to the Molineux Stadium. Folarin Balogun is missing on Thursday after he turned in a positive Covid-19 test.

Match Prediction

Looking at the goalscorer market, it seems to be a good idea to side with Joao Moutinho. He is one of the Wolves players, who are showing decent form right now. He managed to find the back of the net two times in his most recent outing. Surely, he will want to add more goals against Arsenal and improve his goal-to-game ratio. The visitors will be looking to in-form Bukayo Saka to find the net once again, as he has been their main man recently. Bukayo Saka netted four goals for Arsenal in his last six games, and so he should definitely be a goalscorer to have in mind for this match.
