Arsenal take on Wolves at Molineux this evening looking for a win that would send them up to sixth place in the table.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returns to the squad but he’s only fit enough for a place on the bench so Nicolas Pepe keeps his place in the Arsenal starting eleven with Alexandre Lacazette leading the line up front once again.
Kieran Tierney remains on the sidelines so Cedric Soares starts at left-back with Hector Bellerin at right-back. David Luiz keeps his place after an excellent display during Arsenal’s draw with Man Utd while Rob Holding also starts once again so Gabriel has to settle for a place on the bench.
