After a disappointing result on Sunday against Crystal Palace, Arsenal will be looking to bounce back in order to keep their top-four hopes alive when they travel to take on Wolves on Wednesday.

The Gunners missed the chance to secure third spot above their arch-rivals Tottenham but they still have it in their own hands to finish in the top four at the end of the season. 

Team News

Granit Xhaka should return to the squad after being left out of the game against Palace as a precaution but Aaron Ramsey is ruled out. Sokratis has served his two-game suspension and will be available but long term absentees Rob Holding, Hector Bellerin and Danny Welbeck are still out. 

Probable Arsenal XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Unai Emery

Bernd Leno (GK)

The German has made some outstanding saves in recent weeks and should continue between the sticks on Wednesday.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles (RB)

The youngster’s introduction in the second half against Palace boosted Arsenal’s attack from the right flank and he should start against Wolves midweek. 

Sokratis Papastathopoulos (CB)

The Gunners struggled against Palace without Sokratis’ leadership and his return in the heart of the defence will be hugely important in the final few games of the season. 

Laurent Koscielny (CB)

The skipper has been immense for the Gunners since his return from injury and he should start again on Wednesday.

Nacho Monreal (LB)

The Spaniard has settled in well in his new role at centre-back but he is at his best in his natural left-back position. 

Lucas Torreira (CM)

Torreira came on in the second half and did well. He should be fresh for the game against Wolves on Wednesday. 

Granit Xhaka (CM)

Arsenal have struggled in games with Xhaka’s passing and he should start next to Torreira on Wednesday.

Alex Iwobi (LW)

Iwobi’s introduction at half time changed the game for the Gunners and his driving runs from the left flank has been a huge asset in Unai Emery’s system so far.

Mesut Ozil (CAM)

Ozil was Arsenal’s best player in the weekend and his ability to find the runners will be hugely important against a well organised Wolves side.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan (RW)

The Armenian’s form has dipped in recent weeks but his passing and runs down the right wing will be really important against Wolves on Wednesday.

Alexandre Lacazette (ST)

Lacazette’s all-round game has been really helpful for the Gunners this season and he should start over Aubameyang despite the Gabonese scoring against Palace on Sunday.
