Arsenal take on Wolves on Sunday looking to get back to winning ways after two successive draws in the Premier League.
The 1-1 draw with Liverpool last weekend means Unai Emery’s side go into the final match before the international break sitting fifth in the table, one point behind fourth-placed Spurs and six behind leaders Manchester City.
Arsenal are now unbeaten in 15 games in all competitions, but Emery will be desperate to see his side pick up all three points against a Wolves side who have adjusted well to life in the top flight.
They may have been beaten 3-2 by Spurs last weekend, but Wolves sit nicely in mid-table with four wins from their opening 11 games.
Arsenal will obviously be without Danny Welbeck following the forward’s horror injury against Sporting CP in the Europa League. Welbeck broke his ankle on Thursday night and looks set to be out for the season.
The England international remains in hospital and Arsenal say they will make a further update on his condition within the next 72 hours.

Stephan Lichtsteiner also suffered an injury against Sporting when he pulled his hamstring during the second half. Arsenal say the defender will be assessed ahead of Sunday’s game, but the Switzerland international is not expected to feature.
