How Wolverhampton Wanderers could line up against Arsenal

How Wolverhampton Wanderers could line up against Arsenal

Ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash between Arsenal and Wolves, Sports Mole looks at how the West Midlands outfit could line up at the Emirates Stadium.

Wolverhampton Wanderers make the trip to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal having suffered three successive defeats in the Premier League.

Nuno Espirito Santo‘s side enjoyed a strong start to the campaign, but failing to pick up any points since October 6 has left the club in the bottom half of the standings.

The club’s head coach will take encouragement from his side’s spirited comeback against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend, but the Portuguese must find a solution to his team’s recent struggles at both ends of the pitch.

Nuno has a number of selection dilemmas ahead of the trip to North London, and here Sports Mole looks at how his team could line against Unai Emery‘s in-form side.


Diogo Jota has fully recovered from an injury to his quad, and that leaves Nuno with a fully-fit squad to choose from for this weekend’s fixture.

Jota is likely to be recalled to the team in place of either Helder Costa or Ivan Cavaleiro, with Raul Jimenez keeping his place down the middle.

Nuno has not made a single alteration to his backline in the Premier League this season, but conceding three goals to Spurs last week may lead to Leander Dendoncker being considered for a starting role ahead of Ryan Bennett.

The rest of the team should remain the same, with Morgan Gibbs-White having to make do with a place on the substitutes’ bench despite a bright cameo against Spurs.
