Wolverhampton v Arsenal Premier League betting preview and tips
Wolverhampton Wanderers have done pretty well against the Premier League elite and there seems little reason to oppose them for this clash at Molineux.
While Arsenal recently won 1-0 at Watford, the victory owed plenty to Ben Foster’s slowness which allowed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score the only goal of the game before Troy Deeney earned himself a red card moments later.
For the rest of the match, you could hardly tell the difference in terms of numbers and the Hornets could easily have earned something from the game despite the numerical disadvantage.
Wolves will now try to claim a home win against the same opponents and backers of the Midlands side can be encouraged by previous Molineux victories over Manchester United and Chelsea.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have also drawn with Manchester City along with experiencing narrow defeats at home to Spurs and Liverpool, although they did win against Tottenham at Wembley and drew 1-1 with Arsenal at the Emirates.
Wolves are pretty solid at home, with eight wins landed this season and they’ve downed Manchester United in both the FA Cup and Premier League recently.
Raul Jimenez has bagged nineteen goals for the men in old gold this season and the Mexican has signed permanently, while Diogo Jota has been a lively partner in crime and all of his eight goals have come since the beginning of December.
Arsenal might have won at Vicarage Road and they clearly possess the better team on paper, although Unai Emery’s side have only won six of their sixteen matches on the road.
It might be that the Gunners do scramble a top four spot this season, although it will owe more to their form at the Emirates, along with Manchester United’s shortcomings and Chelsea’s propensity to wobble.
Arsenal’s goal difference on the road continues to be a negative and we have to note their hectic fixture schedule which has recently seen them play Napoli home and away in the Europa League.
