Wolves and Arsenal both head into Saturday’s Premier League clash at Molineux buoyed by registering three straight wins.
However, those victories have been earned on the back of some strong defensive play, with just one goal conceded between them, so a cagey contest could be on the cards.
Punters can get 9/10 for at least one team to keep a clean sheet and that is our opening Wolves vs Arsenal prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves maintained their 100 per cent record since the restart when Leander Dendoncker struck in the second half to seal a 1-0 win at Aston Villa.
Nuno Espirito Santo was keen to play down talk of Champions League qualification but will be well aware of that target.
Wanderers have now kept seven clean sheets in their last eight top-flight games and were rarely troubled at Villa Park.
“The most important thing is to sustain the levels of performance, sustain your standards and motivate game after game,” said Nuno. “The boys are like that, let’s kick on.
“We know what is in front of us, we know how we do things. The how is more important, how we prepare ourselves for the next one. We have to reinvent ourselves for a tough challenge.”
Having been on the go since last July’s Europa League play-offs, a three-month lay-off looks to have freshened up Wolves.
One stat which stands out from their record in this competition is 11 goals netted and none conceded between 61 and 75 minutes in matches.
Looking at the Wolves vs Arsenal odds, Wanderers are 18/5 to outscore the Gunners during that period here.
Last Wolves line-up: Rui Patricio, Doherty, Boly, Coady, Jonny, Neves, Saiss, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Jimenez, Jota.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal’s hopes of returning to the Champions League were rocked by defeats at Manchester City and Brighton after the restart, but they have recovered well.
A 2-0 triumph at Southampton and Wednesday’s 4-0 drubbing of Norwich got them back on track in this competition, with a 2-1 FA Cup win at Sheffield United coming in between.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang bagged a brace in midweek, with Granit Xhaka and Cedric Soares also on target.
“I’m very happy with the performance,” Mikel Arteta told Arsenal Digital. “We were really aggressive in our high press.
“Overall, a great performance here and great to win three times in a row. The spirit of the team and everything is great.”
This will obviously be a much tougher test, though, and everything points towards a tight tussle, especially in the early exchanges.
We’re following past trends for both teams and going with 8/5 for 0-0 at half-time to complete our Wolves vs Arsenal betting tips.
Last Arsenal line-up: Martinez, Bellerin, Tierney, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac, Ceballos, Xhaka, Lacazette, Aubameyang, Nelson.
Aston Villa 0-1 WOLVES – Leander Dendoncker
ARSENAL 4-0 Norwich – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (2), Granit Xhaka, Cedric Soares
Head-to-head: Arsenal 1-1 Wolves, Wolves 3-1 Arsenal, Arsenal 1-1 Wolves
