Match Preview

November is a tough month for most of the premier league teams and as the month proceeds, you may find one or two title contenders out of pace with the rest of the title chasing pack. Arsenal is definitely no exception. With the 1-0 weekend loss to Newcastle, they might find themselves in a tricky situation, if they lose this upcoming game with Wolves set to take place at 20:00 GMT.

Against Newcastle the gunners were gunned down by an Andy Carroll strike just before the end of the first half sealing their fate. This mean Arsenal really needs a win, as they find themselves in a rather difficult set of fixtures this month. They are set to face off with both Tottenham and Aston Villa, and although it is certainly not beyond them to win all the games, history will show that they struggle with these teams.

With Thomas Vermaelen still unavailable, the Arsenal backline is prone to costly mistakes. Lukasz Fabianski has so far done exceedingly well on the goal line to keep it from happening, despite contrary expectations, and you get the feeling the defense will implode before the keeper does. This said, Samir Nasri is looking exceedingly dangerous with the ball upfront and his confidence seems to have come back having scored an impressive twelve goals so far.

Wolves narrowly lost to Manchester United as Park Ji-Sung bagged a last-gasp winner late in extra time to end a 1-1 tie that threatened United’s title contention. Wolves’ manager Mick McCarthy was quite furious at his team’s failure to secure a good result at Old Trafford and he is surely going to tell his team to go for the win against Arsenal. Although they will likely precede with some causation, as Arsenals intricate, neat and free flowing passing could cause headaches to Wolves backline otherwise.

Arsenal is likely to approach this match with a 4-3-3 formation with Chamakh, Nasri and Walcott up front. Fabregas, Wilshere and Song will be the mid-field players and are the key to securing a good result. Wolves on the other hand are likely to play the 4-5-1 formation with Kevin Doyle up front. Wing support will come from Matthew Jarvins and David Edwards.

Betting Tip for Wolves vs Arsenal

The result against Newcastle was costly for Arsenal and they can not afford any more mistakes, which make tonight’s match a must win. Wolves will likely be satisfied by one point, but do need three points to get away from the relegation zone. This could cost them the match however, if they open up to much, which is bound to happen should Arsenal score the first goal. We believe they will and predict a Arsenal win for this one.
