Arsenal drew against Manchester United at the Emirates on the weekend. There were few chances for the Gunners, who could not create nor capitalize in order to trouble David De Gea in goal.

Key players were missing for Arsenal, though. The draw has been deemed a good result against a strong United side. The London side will travel north to Wolverhampton in a bid to get back to winning ways.

  • Missing players

It looks set to be a similar tale in the Midlands. Star-striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is a doubt to play and defensive duo Kieran Tierney and Gabriel Magalhaes are also unlikely.

Bukayo Saka was omitted from the squad against United as a precaution with a sore hip, so could be available in the forthcoming match.

Martin Odegaard replaced Emile Smith-Rowe in the 83 minute to make his Premier League debut.

The Norwegian will be hoping to see more minutes at the Molineux.

Nicolas Pepe impressed on the right. His direct runs were causing problems for United and, against a weak Wolves defence, he should be able to cause problems.

  • Formation

Arsenal have had recent success with the 4-2-3-1 formation.

This formation has suited Arsenal much better than the back three that was preferred at the start of the season.

Smith-Rowe has been shining in the number 10 role and has offered the creativity that was lacking for the majority of the season.

Granit Xhaka partnered Thomas Partey in the midfield and it is likely that the duo will continue against Wolves. 

To win Arsenal will need to setup to exploit the Wolves defence. An attacking lineup would be suitable, with Alexandre Lacazette leading the line. 

Pepe and Saka could complete the attack and driving at a Wolves back three should give them space to create.

Wolves have not won in their last eight Premier League games and Arsenal's recent history in the league will give them confidence going forward.
