It will be an open game, are Wolves good enough defensively to trade blows.

Time will tell.

Enjoy the game.

There is an opportunity here for Nuno and Wolves, get our defensive team structure right, then hit Arsenal on the counter attack. Whilst Arsenal have an attacking threat, at the back they're a mess and we should look to take advantage, with Traore key. Arsenal also look to be a mess off the pitch so Wolves should go there with a positive mind set and look to get their fans on their back.

Arsenal have two great strikers in Lacazette and Aubameyang, both could really get at us with Boly missing. However, that said, how much disarray are Arsenal in with the Xhaka issue and their manager under pressure? We have to get at them early on, keep the crowd quiet and pick them off on the counter attack with Traore's speed and Jota and Jimenez ready to pounce. Could be anything this game.

I fear Arsenal will be too fired-up to get a win after their last few results and we lack the mobility to counteract their pace.

As always with us, the first goal is crucial but with our tactic of not even bothering to attack until the 2nd half of games it is all the more difficult to believe we will score first.

One down after 20 mins after dominating the first quarter...

Tremendous first half away performance - only downside is we are 1 behind!!! Could easily have had a couple ourselves, and not just because of the pressure exerted, but because of actual shots, for a change!

Somewhat unlucky to be behind - for the first time in weeks we are actually actively pushing for a goal, but the opportunity is never passed up to fall behind.

The back 3 are just too unconcentrated when the ball gets around our area. Their striker should never be stood fully free right in the middle of the area. There have been some other moments where Arsenal were very very close to scoring as we were stood too far off them.

Attack is bright but ultimately neither of Jota or Jimenez have drawn their keeper into any saves- Doherty very lucky not to equalise. Leno had a superb game in the same fixture last year and looks steady again today.

Jimenez's header equalises and gets the draw. However, the Doc went off injured and we are struggling to keep our defenders fit of late. However, a great away point.

Deserved point in the end, Arsenal couldn't get anything going after the break.

A shame we couldn't nick it (one day we will win at Arsenal!), but the last pass was sadly absent throughout the game. The goal, when it came, was pretty basic stuff.

Much more enjoyable to watch us play the better sides and actually have a clue how to attack them rather than just pushing the ball back and forth in our back third. Hopefully Doherty isn't badly hurt as our luck on injuries is starting to desert us.

We were very unlucky not to win. Despite their higher possession our chances were a lot better. Their keeper earned his wages today.

That's the second week in three that I've changed my match prediction from a correct score and result to a wrong one! :roll:
