Predicted Arsenal lineup (4-2-3-1) to face Wolves, Ozil and Torreira start

Predicted Arsenal XI to face Wolves

Arsenal will be aiming to register their first Premier League win since the international break when they entertain Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

The north London side were ousted from the League Cup in midweek following a penalty shoot-out defeat to Liverpool after the scores were level at 5-5 in normal time.

Predicted Lineup:

Bernd Leno remains the undisputed goalkeeping choice for the Premier League and the German is expected to make the starting XI to face Wolverhampton Wanderers.

In the defence, David Luiz and Sokratis are pretty much guaranteed their places at the heart of the backline but we are predicting a change in the full-back positions.

Kieran Tierney will definitely feature in the left-back spot following a knock for Sead Kolasinac at Anfield and on the opposite end, Hector Bellerin could earn his first league start of the season ahead of Calum Chambers.

In the centre of the park, Matteo Guendouzi remains an undisputed starter and he could be accompanied by Lucas Torreira, who impressed in the midweek Cup tie against the Reds.

Granit Xhaka has recently issued an apology to the fans after the unforeseen incident last weekend but there are still doubts whether he would be mentally prepared for the forthcoming game.

In the number 10 role, we are anticipating a second league appearance of the season for Mesut Ozil. Unai Emery hinted following the midweek game that the German's substitution was done with a view to the weekend clash.

Elsewhere, there are no selection doubts with Nicolas Pepe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang starting on the right and left wing respectively while Alexandre Lacazette should lead the line.

Predicted XI: Bernd Leno, Hector Bellerin, David Luiz, Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Kieran Tierney, Lucas Torreira, Matteo Guendouzi, Nicolas Pepe, Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette.
