Wolverhampton vs Arsenal. Shape of the Teams

Wolverhampton Wanderers will host Arsenal at home this Saturday, April 20th, in a crucial Premier League match for both teams. In the last four EPL rounds, Gary O’Neill’s men have gained only two points, mainly against other relegation-battling teams.

Matheus Cunha, the 24-year-old striker, was fantastic against Nottingham Forest after returning from an injury that kept him off the pitch in prior matches. The Brazilian netted a brace – his first goals since February 4 – and helped Wolverhampton secure a point in a challenging match. Interestingly, Cunha was also the lone scorer in the Wolves’ first encounter with the Gunners this season.

In April, Arsenal devoted a lot of time and effort to the Champions League confrontation with Bayern. However, after failing to beat them at home a week ago (2-2), Arteta’s team was unable to find the back of the net on the road (1-0).

During the entire second half of the match at the Allianz Arena, the Londoners managed only two shots, reflecting a meagre xG of 0.17. The preceding loss against Aston Villa was also devastating, highlighting a recurring issue with Arsenal’s mentality, which reminds us of their struggles in the previous season. 

Tactically, Arsenal is solid, but it’s clear that the squad is physically and mentally drained as the season wears on.

Arsenal’s squad depth appeared to have increased, allowing Mikel Arteta to maintain a strong team towards the season’s end. Moreover, their early exits from the League Cup and FA Cup in February afforded the Gunners a much-needed rest.

Nevertheless, in an unexpected turn of events in mid-April, Arsenal began to exhibit unusual defensive errors and suffered a drop in intensity.

Wolverhampton vs Arsenal Prediction, Odds

Arsenal experienced an extremely unsuccessful week. They lost against Aston Villa at home in the last round, falling further behind Manchester City in the Premier League standings. To add insult to injury, they were knocked out of the quarterfinal in the Champions League by Bayern. 

The mood in the Gunners’ camp is likely quite sombre. 

However, I still think they are capable of winning the Premier League title. With six rounds left until the end of the EPL season, they are only two points behind the leaders and should be able to close the gap. 

The head-to-head results should give the Gunners some confidence, having secured five victories in a row. For Wolverhampton, the statistics paint a darker picture: they’ve conceded 12 goals while scoring only 2 in those past five games.

Given Arsenal’s need to rebound strongly, I think Mikel Arteta’s side will dominate the game and win this match with a handicap. Winning decisively could also prove crucial in the later stages of the league, especially in a title race where it could come down to goal difference.

Wolverhampton vs Arsenal Betting Tip

After a shaky December, Arsenal has been on a tear in the Premier League since January, a resurgence can be mostly attributed to their potent attack. 

Although they didn’t score against Aston Villa in the last round, they managed to score 38 goals in the previous 11 league matches, leading to an impressive average of 3.45 goals per game. This is a phenomenal statistic that highlights their attacking skills in the extremely competitive Premier League. 

Wolverhampton, on the other hand, are not the most reliable team in terms of defence. They conceded 14 goals in the past six matches, which indicates their problems at the back. Given this, I think the best pick in this regard will be an individual total of 2.5 or more for Arsenal. 

Betting on Bukayo Saka to score a goal is another reasonable option. The young English forward has had a powerful season and has been one of Arsenal’s key players.

I also expect standout performances from Martin Ødegaard and Kai Havertz. Arsenal will press forward aggressively from the kickoff, aiming to secure a decisive victory while trying to add as many goals to their tally as possible.
