            Wolves vs Arsenal Preview, Prediction & Betting Tips

            Arsenal travel to the Molineux hoping to rectify their title hopes against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Mikel Arteta’s side will be eager to regain their spot at the top of the table as we enter the season's final stages.

            Location: Molineux

            Date: 20/04/24

            Kick-off: 7.30 PM

            The Premier League title race has certainly been fascinating from a neutral perspective and once again the visitors find themselves in the title picture. Arsenal are currently second heading into matchday 33, only a point behind current champions Manchester City. Arsenal will be hoping to take a step further than their position of last season, where they were beaten to the title by Manchester City.

            The away side recently suffered a huge setback against Aston Villa, which has cost them the top spot. In the same weekend also that Liverpool dropped points against Crystal Palace, which allowed Manchester City to capitalise. The Gunners are still competing on the European front, currently in a stalemate against Bayern Munich heading into the second leg at the Allianz.

            Arsenal along with Liverpool will be eager to take any advantage awarded to them, with Manchester City not involved in league action because of their FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea. If Arsenal were to win against Wolves, they would move a point ahead of Manchester City in the league, although a defeat could see them slip to third place and inevitably, they could end up five points behind the current champions.

            Arsenal have played 32 games so far this season and have accumulated 71 points thus far – averaging 2.21 points per game. The Gunners currently boast the second-best attack in the league, only a goal-less scored than Manchester City. The real strength behind their league position has been their defence.

            Mikel Arteta’s side have conceded only 26 goals this season – averaging 0.78 goals per game conceded per game. The team, in general, are amongst the leaders in clean sheets despite playing two first-choice goalkeepers in Aaron Ramsdale and David Raya.

            The hosts, Wolverhampton Wanderers, will be playing Premier League football once again next season. Since his late arrival before the season started, Gary O’Neil has been excellent in guiding his team to a projected mid-table finish.

            Wolves though could be harbouring aspirations for a late push for a UEFA Europa Conference League place if they can achieve a solid set of results from now until the end of the season.

            The home side are currently 11th after 32 games; however, a win would elevate Gary O’Neil’s side ahead of Chelsea who are ninth. It is worth noting that Chelsea has games in hand over the teams around them. Wolves have recorded a modest points per game average of 1.34 per game, although if they were to construct a late challenge for Europe, they would need to improve their goal difference.

            Defensively, they have been below average conceding 51 goals in 32 games – conceding on average 1.59 goals per game. In the most recent league meeting between the two sides, title-chasing Arsenal edged out a closely fought win at the Emirates.

            Arsenal raced into a two-goal lead through Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard. Wolves did score a goal late through Matheus Cunha; however, it wasn’t enough for the visitors that day.

            Recent Form

            The recent history between the two teams falls heavily in Arsenal’s favour. The Gunners have won all five of their last five competitive fixtures over Wolverhampton Wanderers. In the corresponding fixture between the two sides, Arsenal were 2-0 winners thanks to a brace from Martin Odegaard.

            Wolves have conceded 13 goals in their last five games against the Gunners and have only scored three times in those five games played. The last time Wolverhampton Wanderers recorded a win over Arsenal was in 2021 at Molineux. Goals from Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves secured the win for the hosts that day.

            The home side entered this game with very indifferent form, having won only once from their last five league games. Wolves’ previous game, they were held to a 2-2 draw away at Nottingham Forest. Wolves took the lead through Matheus Cunha, however; they were immediately pegged back by goals from Morgan Gibbs-White and Danilo.

            Cunha then levelled just past the hour mark and couldn’t find a winner. Wolves' home form is where their strongest asset lies. The home side have won seven from 15 played at Molineux and have averaged 1.60 points per game.

            Wolves have won two out of their last five home games, losing the remaining three games. Their last home win was a 2-1 win over Fulham thanks to goals from Rayan Ait-Nouri and an own goal from Tom Cairney.

            Arsenal have the stronger form heading into this game. The Gunners have won three out of their last five league games, losing once and obtaining a draw against Manchester City.

            In their most recent league fixture, Arsenal fell to a late defeat against Aston Villa. The defeat leaves them trailing Manchester City. Mikel Arteta took a tactical gamble in replacing Martin Odegaard which disrupted the balance of the side going forward. Goals from Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins shifted the title in favour of Manchester City.

            Arsenal’s last away game resulted in a resounding 3-0 win for the Gunners. Arteta’s side produced an impressive display away at Brighton and Hove Albion, with goals from Kai Havertz, Bukayo Saka and a goal from Brighton player Leandro Trossard secured all three points.

            Arsenal’s away form is excellent. Having travelled away from the Emirates 16 times this season, Arsenal have won ten games, drawn three times and lost the remaining three. The visitors have obtained a point average of 2.06 points per game away from the Emirates this season.
