Arsenal XI vs Wolves: Confirmed team news and lineup predictions

The Gunners have scored only once in their last five league games – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s penalty which gave them a 1-0 win at Manchester United earlier this month.

The poor run has left them down in 12th place and with Arteta under increasing pressure. A visit to face a Wolves defence that has conceded only three goals in the last six suggests life is not about to get any easier.

Playing Aubameyang through the middle did not seem to help, despite many fans calling for such a move all season, so Alexandre Lacazette should come back in. Reiss Nelson continues to impress in the Europa League, so will replace the suspended Nicolas Pepe.

Further back, David Luiz sustained a knock against Molde so Arteta may revert to a back four with Rob Holding and Gabriel his centre-back pairing.

Thomas Partey continues to struggle with fitness, so Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos are likely to be holding the fort in the centre.

Arsenal predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Ceballos, Xhaka; Nelson, Willock, Aubameyang; Lacazette

Injured: Gabriel Martinelli (knee), Pablo Mari (ankle)
