Arsenal will be hoping to recover from their intense Carabao Cup exit against Liverpool as the Gunners welcome Wolves in Saturday’s Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium.
The Gunners played in one of the games of the season on Wednesday evening, as their Carabao Cup trip to Anfield finished 5-5 after 90 minutes, with Liverpool going on to win on penalties.
This only built on an already dismal week for Arsenal, who surrendered a two-goal lead against Crystal Palace last Sunday following another underwhelming performance.
Unai Emery is in desperate need of a victory to stop the rot and maintain pressure on those challenging for the Champions League places. However, more than anything, they need to build confidence following a torrid run of both results, and performances.
On the other hand, Wolves, playing their fourth successive away match in all competitions, are keen to build a clear margin between themselves and the bottom three.
Head To Head
Saturday’s encounter will represent the 115th competitive meeting between these two clubs, with Arsenal registering 57 wins in comparison to 30 victories for Wolves.
While Arsenal have only suffered one defeat in this fixture in the last 21 games, it came as recently as April when Wolves ran out 3-1 victors at Molineux.
Arsenal are in a position where they need to produce for their supporters, and that extra desire could be enough to see off the challenge of Wolves.
