As the action heats up in the English Premier League at both ends, Molineux Stadium will witness a key clash between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Arsenal. Both teams are in the hunt for European spots, making this a crucial six-pointer.
Wolves are 6th in the standings with 52 points and only three away from the third-placed Leicester City. Arsenal are 8th with 46 and six points away from top-five. Both sides will be aiming to finish in top-five, if not top-four. Manchester City could be facing a UEFA ban next season, which means fifth spot could be enough for UEFA Champions League qualification.
Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview
A win here for the hosts will put them in track for a Champions League qualification spot. Wolves have won five of their last six league matches, including the last three in a row. Defensively, the Wolves have been one of the best teams in the entire league. They have kept seven clean sheets in their last eight matches and will be gunning for another.
Raul Jimenez has been the star player for the Wolves, with 15 goals and 6 assists this season. He is in top form too and has two goals in his last three matches. The hosts also have some exciting names like Adama Traore, Leander Dendoncker for fantasy selections.
Back-to-back wins have got Arsenal on track for a European spot challenge. However, Mikel Arteta’s men have been too inconsistent this season. Especially away from home, Arsenal have struggled to win matches. The Gunners have won only one of their last eight Premier League away matches, although drawing five.
Coming to fantasy selections, choices from the Arsenal team are very few. Only Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Dani Ceballos remain exciting options. Stay away from dangerous picks like David Luiz, who is under the cloud with poor form.
Fantasy Players to Watch
Raul Jimenez has been the cornerstone of Wolverhampton’s success this season. With 15 goals, he is an outside bet for the ‘Golden Boot’. Regardless, his selection in your fantasy side is a must.
Adama Traore has wowed fans with his pace. Back to full fitness, he will be a great asset to your side.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been Mr. Consistent for Arsenal. He has scored 19 goals and assisted 2 in the league already. Another definite pick for your team.
