Wolves administrator Nuno Espirito Santo has conceded that “a great deal of things are absent” as his side’s winless run in the EPL extended to eight matches with a defeat to Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Eberechi Eze got the goal which sentenced the West Midlands outfit to their third destruction from four in the Premier League a genuinely discouraging outcome only days after they had figured out how to hold Chelsea to a goalless impasse in the capital.
As one of just two groups in the English first class who have neglected to win any of their last five matches the other being Fulham Santo’s men have slipped to fourteenth in the table, and unanticipated apprehensions of transfer will begin to sneak in except if they can haul themselves out of this disturbing groove.
Moreover, the hosts have just figured out how to take most extreme points from one of their last six Premier League matches on home soil, and should Arsenal figure out how to penetrate Santo’s defense on Tuesday, Wolves would have neglected to keep a clean sheet in seven EPL game at Molineux.
Life doesn’t get any simpler for Wolves after the visit of Arsenal either, as they should take on Leicester City before a twofold header with Southampton in the league and FA Cup in February, so a stun win against the Gunners would be the ideal tonic for Santo’s men heading into a burdening fortnight.
The Arsenal versus Manchester United installation doesn’t have the equivalent ‘epic showdown mark as it did during the Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger days, and Saturday’s down assuredly had the vibe of two groups out to dodge rout instead of going all weapons blasting for a success.
The two sides had splendid opportunities to win Edinson Cavani’s volley went inches wide and Alexandre Lacazette’s free dismiss cannoned from the bar however there were no goals to be had as Arsenal stretched out their unbeaten league hurry to seven matches with that 0-0 draw.
Given the way that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Bukayo Saka and Kieran Tierney were all absent on the evening, Mikel Arteta will no uncertainty be happy with a point one which saw them keep their fifth clean sheet in six league coordinates.
In any case, the European-pursuing Gunners stay in mid-table indefinite quality after Chelsea’s success over Burnley on Sunday, and Arteta’s side who lie tenth get themselves eight points loose of the main four after Leicester City’s stun thrashing to Leeds United.
A triumph on Tuesday would see Arsenal expand their triumphant away run in the EPL to four matches following successes on Brighton and Hove Albion, West Bromwich Albion and Southampton’s turf, and the Gunners guaranteed a 2-0 dominate in this match last season because of goals from Saka and Lacazette.
Arsenal keep on exhibiting consistent indications of progress continuously under Arteta, and with the possibility of vital participants returning as expected for this tie, we can just see one victor. Wolves have just beaten Arsenal once this term and will feel that there is no motivation behind why lightning can’t strike twice, however a defensively solid Gunners group should return to scoring and winning ways at Molineux this week. Hence, bet on Arsenal to win.
