Arsenal to win 2-1

Arsenal can go back to the top of the Premier League by beating Wolves at Molineux on Saturday night.

The Gunners have no time to stew after their Champions League exit to Bayern Munich on Wednesday and with just six matches remaining in the league season, they cannot afford any more slip-ups.

With Wolves drifting towards a mid-table finish and going through their quietest spell of the whole campaign, the title contenders should be able to secure the three points they need.

Team news

Wolves have injury concerns over Rayan Ait-Nouri, who missed the game against Nottingham Forest with a calf issue, and Nelson Semedo, who felt his hamstring near the end of that game. 

Jean-Ricner Bellegarde could return after a month on the sidelines with a knee injury but Pedro Neto remains out. 

Craig Dawson has been named on the bench in recent matches but is still dealing with a groin injury. Hee Chan Hwang returned from an injury absence against Forest and could start.

Mikel Arteta may make changes to freshen up his side but he has few injury concerns. 

Long-term Arsenal absentee Jurrien Timber may yet return this season but will not feature in this game. Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard overcame injury issues to play against Bayern Munich.

The stats

Arsenal have won 10 of their last 12 Premier League matches, while six of their last seven top-flight away games have produced over 2.5 goals.

Wolves have scored but lost in their last two home matches in the league and FA Cup, while both teams have scored in 11 of their 15 home league games this season.

Four of the last seven meetings between these teams have finished with a 2-1 final score.

Arsenal have won 10 of their 16 away games in the Premier League this season.

Arsenal have the incentive of returning to first place in the Premier League to shake them out of any post-Champions League gloom and they should be able to pick up their 11th away victory of the season.

The Gunners had been on a fine run in away games prior to their trip to Munich, recording wide-margin wins over West Ham, Burnley and Sheffield United, while they also held Manchester City to a draw at the Etihad and turned in a thoroughly impressive and professional performance to beat Brighton 3-0 in their most recent league trip.

Given their midweek exertions and the potential mental effects of that defeat, it might be sensible to expect a less marauding display from the Gunners and a closer contest at Molineux, but they should still have the quality to come out on top.

Wolves' recent weaker spell can be attributed to their tough time with injuries and they have particularly missed some of their top attacking players. 

However, Matheus Cunha scored twice against Nottingham Forest in his first start for several weeks and Hwang made his first appearance since February from the bench in that match.

The increased firepower available to Gary O'Neil should enable Wolves to get on the scoresheet even if it is in a losing effort, as has been the case in their last two home games against Coventry and West Ham. A 2-1 correct-score bet has appeal.
