Predicted Arsenal line-up vs Wolves today

Arsenal entertain Wolverhampton Wanderers in tonight's Premier League clash at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners have registered back-to-back league wins, and now have the chance to close the gap on the final Champions League spot.

The London giants are presently four points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester United, but have three games in hand over Ralf Rangnick's side.

Predicted Line-up:

Aaron Ramsdale has been ever-present in goal since the September international break. He has kept 11 clean Premier League clean sheets, and there are no doubts over his position.

In defence, there could be a solitary change on the cards. While Ben White, Gabriel Magalhaes and Kieran Tierney are definite starters, Cedric Soares could make way for the return of regular right-back Takehiro Tomiyasu.

Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey are considered undisputed midfield starters, and there appears no reason for manager Mikel Arteta to change things. The duo are expected to start together for the third game running.

Gabriel Martinelli is in contention after serving a one-game domestic ban, but Arteta may stick with his winning combination against Brentford. Emile Smith Rowe should keep his place on the left wing after his sublime opening goal.

Martin Odegaard controlled the proceedings with his terrific link-up play against the Bees, and he should likewise keep his place in the number 10 role with Bukayo Saka on the right wing.

Alexandre Lacazette is regarded as an undisputed starter up front with Eddie Nketiah usually coming off the bench. His scoring form has been poor, but has chipped in with valuable assists.

Predicted Arsenal line-up (4-2-3-1): Ramsdale; Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney; Partey, Xhaka; Saka, Odegaard, Smith Rowe; Lacazette.
