Arsenal vs Wolves Premier League Preview

Arsenal vs Wolves Preview: Gunners face test to continue unbeaten run

Arsenal are on a 15 match unbeaten run that they look to continue against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday. During this run Arsenal have scored 36 goals and conceded just 13, averaging 2.6 points per match. The last three matches have resulted in draws but Arsenal have still played relatively well in those games, even if they didn’t get the three points.

The main driver of being able to turn okay performances into wins for Arsenal this season are their two main strikers getting them goals when sometimes the performances didn’t quite merit the final result.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is tied for the most goals in the league at seven and while he isn’t the best option on the wing, it doesn’t look to have hurt his ability to score goals. Read More

Wolves vs Tottenham Premier League Preview

Wolves vs Tottenham Preview: Portuguese Pressure

The story of Tottenham’s season so far has been finding good results despite poor performances. Recent games against PSV and Man City have been a full reversal of that trend with the club’s two most promising displays of football so far this year returning a single point.

Whether Spurs fans choose to view that as positive or negative probably comes down to individual mindsets but at the very least there’s a case for optimism to be found in Dembele once again appearing fit, as Spurs near the middle period of the season. Read More

Manchester United vs Wolves Premier League Preview

Manchester United vs Wolves Preview: United on the rise?

Manchester United take on Wolves this weekend on the back of some improved form and results following their rocky start to the season. Having lost 3-0 at home to Tottenham Hotspur, United supporters were worried about their chances of picking up all three points away to Watford, considering the Hornets had just beaten Mauricio Pochettino’s men.

Yet their fears were eased on the back of a first half performance that saw them deservedly go 2-0 up thanks to goals from Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling. United were less impressive in the second half but still managed to hang on to the win, courtesy of some excellent late stops from the ever reliable David de Gea.

This weekend’s fixture against Nuno Espírito Santo’s side should be less of a struggle, even if they are currently just one point worse off than United this season. Still, when you consider they’ve averaged just one goal per game so far, even United’s less than impressive defence should be able to ensure they keep a clean sheet. Read More

Wolves vs Manchester City

Wolves vs Manchester City Preview: Will the Wolves bite City?

After sweeping aside Huddersfield, thanks in no small part to Benjamin Mendy, City next face newly promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux. Despite playing in the Championship last season, City did face Wolves in the horribly-titled Carabao Cup. With a drastically weakened back line (featuring a pairing of Tosin Adarabioyo and Eliaquim Mangala), City struggled and eventually progressed on penalties. Suffice to say, City will be much better this time around.

It’s hard to read much into Wolves’ first two games, even beyond the tiny sample size. In each match, their opponent was shown a red card, meaning that approximately half their time on the pitch has been 11 against 10. Obviously that drastically affects how the team plays and makes it difficult to draw much in the way of conclusions. Read More
