The Premier League is back once again this weekend as we head into a month that could prove to be a defining one for many fans of teams in English football’s top flight - December. There are a whole lot of games to cover in the weeks ahead and today, we’ll be taking a look at what should be a fun encounter between Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers.Arsenal Form Guide
Arsenal came close to finally reaching the top of the mountain last season, only to fall short at the final hurdle. They simply couldn’t keep up with City in the title race, but this time around, they’ll be hopeful that they can go one step further. Mikel Arteta knows and understands the scale of the task that lies ahead of him, but he has a really strong foundation in place.
After defeating Sheffield United 5-0, Arsenal fell to tricky defeats against West Ham and Newcastle. Since then, though, they’ve gotten back to their best, rattling off victories over Sevilla, Burnley and Brentford in the month of November.Wolves Form Guide
Following a questionable start, many were wondering whether or not the hiring of Gary O’Neil would prove to be a mistake for Wolves - but as we get ready for the winter run-in, it’s safe to say that he’s won a lot of people over. The club appears to be in good hands once again and although there’s still plenty of work to be done, there is certainly cause for optimism in the Black Country.
Inconsistency has been the key for Wolves recently, alongside some bad luck with VAR decisions. They’ve picked up wins over Bournemouth and Tottenham, drawn with Aston Villa and Newcastle, and lost to Sheffield United and Fulham.Match Prediction
Wolves certainly know how to bring it against the bigger sides in the league and with their style of play, we expect them to cause the Gunners some real problems throughout the course of this game. When push comes to shove, though, we’re going to back a very narrow Arsenal win.
