Team News

  • Chiquinho made his Wolves debut as a substitute in their surprise FA Cup exit to Norwich at the weekend.
  • Bruno Lage will hope to have Romain Saiss back from AFCON duty for Thursday's welcome of Arsenal.
  • Trincao is back from COVID so Wolves now have the option to go back to a 3-4-2-1 formation as opposed to the 3-5-2 used last time out.
  • Marcal may rotate in at left wing-back as Rayan Ait-Nouri started the defeat to Norwich over the weekend.
  • Hwang Hee-Chang has returned to training and could make the squad on Thursday.
  • Mohamed Elneny won't be involved after Egypt's penalty shoot-out defeat to Senegal in the Africa Cup of Nations final on Sunday night.
  • Nicolas Pepe is back in contention but has dropped completely down the pecking order at Arsenal this season so will only make the bench.
  • Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey both return from suspension to at least give Arteta some midfield options on Thursday.
  • Cedric Soares, who may not even be fully fit himself, is on standby to start at right-back with a late decision to be made on Takehiro Tomiyasu.
  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Pablo Mari, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Sead Kolasinac and Folarin Balogun all left Arsenal in January to leave Mikel Arteta with a remarkably small squad.


  • Wolves lost 1-0 at home to Norwich in the FA Cup fourth round over the weekend to end their four-game winning streak. Bruno Lage will hope momentum has not been lost as a result of the winter break.
  • Arsenal supporters were left bewildered after watching several first-team players leave without a single new addition in return. The winter break came at a good time for them as they had failed to win their last five.
  • Premier League matches at the Molineux Stadium have been extremely tight affairs generally speaking this season and a score draw would not surprise in the slightest.
