Wolves seek to return to winning ways this week as they play host to Arsenal in the midweek Premier League fixture. The match schedules for Tuesday at Molineux Stadium with a kickoff at 9 pm.
The hosts suffered a 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace in their most recent outing. On the other hand, Arsenal took a point from their clash with Manchester United.
Wolves manager Nuno Espirito admitted that the side is currently missing many things as they went on an eight winless streak. Eberechi Eze’s goal condemned the West midlands outfit to their third defeat from four in the Premier League. It was a genuinely disheartening result, especially after holding off Chelsea to a goalless draw before.
The side is one of the two sides that failed to win any of their last five matches – the other being Fulham – Santo’s men fell down to 14th. There are unforeseen years of relegation that are slowly creeping back.
The Arsenal vs. Manchester United clash does not hold the same energy as back in the Alex Ferguson and Wenger days. The feeling was evident last weekend as the two sides clashed, with both avoiding a defeat.
A share of spoils saw Arsenal remain in 10th position while Manchester United gave City a three-point lead. However, Mikel Arteta could take it on a positive note, given three of their star players were unavailable.
