Arsenal vs Wolves
Arsenal return to Premier League action later today
The Gunners will play host to Wolves, aiming to bounce back from an altogether disappointing start to their domestic campaign.
Mikel Arteta’s men have lost four and drawn one of their nine Premier League outings this season.
They are also struggling to find the net, last notching from open play vs Sheffield United in early October.
In turn, a tough test is predicted versus a Wolves side currently sit 9th in the English top-flight.

‘Something is missing’
Ahead of the tie, Arteta has been discussing Arsenal’s current positions in the league.
Arsenal began Sunday 14th in the league, though they could move up to 6th should they see off Wolves later today.
Regardless, the Spaniard doesn’t seem too happy about where his side are at right now, stating that the Gunners are around four/six points off where we would like to be.
He also voiced the opinion that ‘something is missing’ at Arsenal right now:
“The position probably that I believe we should have been in and where we are at the moment, it’s two games [difference].
“That’s four to six points and it makes the whole difference and the small margins where we lose the game or win the game, it’s incredibly narrow.
“But this is the reality of this league and where we are at the moment. We don’t have big margins at the moment so we have to be really good at everything we do because at the moment, something is missing.
“We are on the edge of winning or losing a football match and we again are humble and conscious of that and at the moment we don’t have to steal those margins and any game is going to be really difficult.”

One area in which Arsenal may indeed be lacking something is in midfield, specifically in a creative role.
Lyon’s Houssem Aouar was, of course, heavily linked with a summer move to north London.
No move would materialise though, with recent reports even suggesting that Arsenal could consider Dominik Szoboszla as an alternative to the Frenchman.
However, a recent report from Italy, as cited by Goal, claims that Arsenal are one of a number of clubs still closely following Aouar.
