A satisfying dismantling of AZ Alkmaar ensures that we go into the match against Wolves in a rich vein of form and scoring quite freely in the Premier League. We have not been good on our away trips this season, but this is a match that every title expectant side is required to win. Manchester United and Chelsea play this weekend and might take points off each other and if we get a good result here, we can be very close to the top. 

Injury News : Bentner (Out), Denilson (Out), Fabianski (Out), Gael Clichy (Out), Walcott (Doubtful).

 

Opponents

Wolves have been an on and off team this season. They are tough to beat, but they also do not score a lot of goals or present a good scoring threat. They are good at home and play a compact game so they will be tough to break down. They have no injuries to their main players at present. They managed a lot of draws, but I hope we can change that trend.

 

Arena

The match is scheduled in Molineux Stadium which was opened in 1899 and has a surface of grass,the stadium can hold up to 28,525 fans.

 

Possible Team (Gunners)

Team selection looks quite interesting this time round. Samir Nasri put in an assuring performance in the Alkmaar game, and with Diaby also having a good game, there are chances that Rosicky might come on from the bench.

Or Rosicky and Nasri could both start. It would be interesting to see if there is dynamic swapping of positions during the game by the players. Arshavin's performance was terrific playing from the centre, so that again increases the headache for Wenger, at least when it comes to choosing the position of the player. 

Most possible line-up:


--------------------------------Almunia/Mannone-----------------------------------------


----Sagna----------------Vermaelen--------Gallas---------------Gibbs---------------


-----------------------------Fabregas--------Song----------------------------------

  ----------------------------------Diaby/Nasri--------------------------------------------


-------Nasri/Eduardo------------------RVP-----------------Arshavin/Eduardo---------

 

Predictions

These type of matches we should win comfortably.

We have the players to break their defense which is not exactly great. They will pose that odd threat but as against Villa they will look to hold rather than being too adventurous. I think we will nick it 2-0.

Interesting Fact : Arsenal has lost only once against newly-promoted sides in Wenger's era.
