Wolves travel to North London with every intention to compound Arsenal’s recent misery and inflict a third straight home defeat in the league.

The Gunners are lacking in the final third and haven’t scored a Premier League goal from open play in 476 minutes.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta could go with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang as a striker, rather than a winger, to try and reinvigorate his side.
