Arsenal vs Wolverhampton in their first soccer matchup since May 2023. Arsenal sit at the top of the Premier League, while Wolverhampton has been chilling around the middle of the pack this year.

Outside of just beating Lens, Arsenal has been on a pretty hot streak as of late, winning four of their last five contests while they have a +23 goal differential in home matches. 

Nevertheless, many experts note that this season, Arsenal in the EPL does not show the level of attacking play displayed last season. In terms of actual and expected goals, they don’t rank in the top five of the English Premier League. This dip is attributed partly to Bukayo Saka’s decreased impact and the departure of Granit Xhaka, who played a crucial role in the attacking maneuvers on the left flank. Arsenal have seen a reduction in their attacking combinations and pace compared to the previous season.

This may well help Wolverhampton, who had quality defence in the low block and counterattacked effectively in the matches against Manchester City and Tottenham.

Arsenal’s Last Five Matches

Wolves sit 12th in the Premier League, with recent performances being a mixed bag. They showed strength in their encounter with Tottenham Hotspur (2-1) but have faced setbacks, losing two of their last three matches, the most recent one being a disappointing penalty kick loss to Fulham in the 93rd minute. 

Wolverhampton’s away results leave much to be desired: only two wins in eight matches.

However, even if Wolverhampton were coming into this one fresh off a winning streak, Arsenal’s high-powered offensive line is simply more than what they can handle. On top of that, Mario Lemina and Joao Gomes are suspended for the clash with Arsenal, while Pedro Neto and Joe Hodge are out with injuries.

Arsenal faces several key absences: Fabio Vieira is sidelined with a groin injury, Emile Smith Rowe and Thomas Partey are expected to return in the new year, and Jurrien Timber remains a long-term absentee. However, you can expect another tremendous offensive outing for the Gunners, as players like Gabriel Jesus, Kai Havertz, and Martin Ødegaard should simply overwhelm José Sá in the net.

Arsenal vs Wolverhampton Prediction and Odds

Wolverhampton faces a significant setback with the injury of Pedro Neto, the Premier League’s leading assist provider, whose exceptional form has been a key asset for the team. His rapid runs and skillful dribbling have the potential to trouble any defence he faces. Without him, Wolverhampton have little chance of causing Arsenal problems.

Unless Wolverhampton surprises with a standout performance, particularly from someone like Hwang Hee-chan with his 7 goals and 2 assists, the result of this match might be clear long before the final whistle. As long as Arsenal maintains the majority of ball possession, or at least goes dead even, they should have this one in the bag.

Arsenal vs Wolverhampton Betting Tip

In all likelihood, Arsenal should win comfortably, but that doesn’t mean Wolverhampton won’t find the back of the net at least once. Even when the Wanderers lose, they still manage to score a goal more often than not. Just take a look at their last ten showings, where they found the back of the net ten times. 

Arsenal, despite all their problems, regularly score exactly as many goals as should be enough to win the game. At the same time, Wolverhampton has demonstrated the ability to score consistently, even against the league’s elite. Betting on both teams to find the net in this matchup is a reasonable expectation, with favourable odds to match.
