Arsenal vs Wolves: Line-up, EPL prediction and result

Gunners staring down the EPL barrel as they host stuttering Wolves on Sunday.

Latest EPL standings as well as fixtures and results are found below the predictions.

Arsenal take on Wolves in the English Premier League on Sunday, with both sides in increasing need of a win to boost their European qualification aspirations.

The Gunners have lost four of their nine EPL fixtures so far this term, leaving them limping along in 12th place – albeit a point and a place above oil-rich Manchester City coming into this weekend.

Mikel Arteta’s side are under increasing pressure despite their win at Manchester United before the international break.

Heavy defeat at home to Aston Villa and a scrambled draw at Leeds have followed, with the early season optimism long-since faded.

Nicolas Pepe is suspended after his red card at Elland Road, joining injured trio Thomas Partey, Pablo Mari and Gabriel Martinelli on the sidelines.

David Luiz, Willian and Bukayo Saka, meanwhile, will all face late fitness tests.

Wolves are a point and three places above their hosts and are having a stutter of their own, with only one Premier League victory in their last four.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men come into this one off the back of a defeat at Leicester and a draw at home to Southampton.

Conor Coady’s return should see the Black Country side revert to their trusted three at the back.

Jonny won’t be coming lately, or at all, thanks to a knee injury, while Roman Saiss has tested positive for Covid-19 and will isolate.
