This evening, two teams that have been in form in the last three games will face each other in a must-win match for both teams – Arsenal football club and Wolves.
Currently, Arsenal is sitting on the 8th spot with 46 points from 32 matches. While the in-form Wolverhampton Wanderers are currently on the 6th spot on the league table with 52 points.
Arsenal vs Wolves current form
Since the restart of the season in June, Wolves have enjoyed the best of form, winning the three matches they have played so far. While Arsenal had a shaky start in the restart, losing 0-3 to Manchester City and also losing 2-1 to Brighton. However, the gunners have been unbeaten since June 25, winning three matches from three games.
Arsenal have conceded 6 goals and they have scored 9 goals in their last 5 games which implies that the more Arsenal concede, the more they score. While Wolves have scored 5 goals and conceded only one goal in their last 5 games which implies that Wolves don’t score too much of goals and they hardly concede.
Hence, one can safely say that the match that would take place 17:30 tonight, is a match between an attacking-minded team (Arsenal) and a defensive-minded team (Wolves).
The form of Wolves have been unprecedented this season no wonder they are just two points away from a Champions League spot. They have not been beaten in their last 8 Premier League games and they have not conceded a goal in 7 out of the 8 matches. Arsenal has not enjoyed such a long stretch of an unbeaten run so far this season.
Wolves are currently six points above Arsenal on the league table with an equal number of games. They have won 13, drawn 13 and lost only 6 games so far. While Arsenal have won 11, drawn 13 and lost 8 matches.
Arsenal vs Wolves: Head to Head
Since Wolves returned to the Premier League in the 2018-2019 season, the club have enjoyed better days against Arsenal. If they win Arsenal at their home stadium, Molineux, this evening, it would bring their unbeaten run against Arsenal to four matches.
In their last three meetings, Wolves won one and drew two, meaning that Arsenal are yet to win Wolves since the last time they met in the 2018-2019 season where Wolves fell 3-1 at home.

Most unfit players of the club are returning from injuries and have started training.
