Arsenal look set to get their Premier League campaign back on track this weekend. The side welcomes Wolves at Emirates Stadium this Sunday with kickoff at 10:15 pm.
The Gunners have only one win in their last five top-flight matches and enter the weekend’s clash 12th on the table. The side is one point behind their Sunday opponents.
Despite their struggles on the domestic front, Arsenal continues to impress the Europa League, making it to the last 32. The side registered a 3-0 win against Molde FK on Thursday. The match saw young sensation Balogun earn his first Arsenal goal after one minute of coming on as a substitute.
Nicolas Pepe earned a Man of the Match award after an impressive display that ended with a goal. Pepe was on the receiving end of a red card during their clash with Leeds United last weekend. The player was heavily criticized for violent conduct by fans and Arteta in a press conference.
Mikel Arteta’s side has only netted one goal in their last five Premier League matches in what proves to be a poor run of form. The only victory came from their win against Newcastle United and Manchester United.
Even though Wolves’ visit is not in a must-win conversation, it still proves vital for their bid for a top-six finish.
