Since their comeback win over Chelsea on December 15, Wolves have now gone eight games without a top-flight victory, as Crystal Palace were 1-0 winners over them on Saturday evening.

It seems fitting they entertain an Arsenal side rejuvenated since they lost the reverse fixture on November 29, as Mikel Arteta’s job security has improved substantially in the weeks following Wolves’ most recent Premier League victory.

They’re unbeaten in seven league games and held title-challenging Manchester United to a goalless draw on Saturday. How will the Gunners fare as they look to continue improving their sketchy away form?

Wolves vs Arsenal Betting Tips

Eberechi Eze’s moment of individual brilliance in the second-half proved decisive for Crystal Palace, as they were made to work hard for all three points against Nuno Espirito Santo’s men.

Vicente Guaita made four saves, captain Luka Milivojevic led by example in central midfield (five tackles, two clearances, one block and interception) while Michy Batshuayi and Wilfried Zaha missed big chances too.

Pedro Neto was Wolves’ best player (five dribbles, three key passes) but Real Sociedad loanee Willian José’s start to life in England has been uneventful so far. How will he and his teammates fare against an Arsenal backline with five clean sheets in their last six top-flight games?

Rob Holding has been consistent and dependable, Bernd Leno producing important saves at critical moments and Cedric Soares filling in well at left-back for the injured Kieran Tierney (calf).

Wolves vs Arsenal Correct Score Prediction

This is a tricky fixture to predict, especially when the pair are experiencing contrasting form as they are right now. Historically, Arsenal dominates (W8, D3, L2) but have one win in their last five meetings (L2, D2) and Molineux is a difficult place to go for visiting teams. I’m predicting BTTS here.
