Mikel Arteta seems to be eeking towards something like a consistent first-choice XI as he makes three changes to the side that thumped Norwich in midweek.

Bukayo Saka was rested for that game but comes back in in place of Reiss Nelson, while Eddie Nketiah gets the nod to replace Alexandre Lacazette up front. 

The other switch sees Cedric Soares make his first start for the club, having scored off the bench on his debut against the Canaries. 

Before we come on to discuss who is playing today, a few notable absentees from the Arsenal squad. 

Mesut Özil and Matteo Guendouzi are still left out, seemingly not in Mikel Arteta’s good books.

Nicolas Pepe is also out, because his partner has just gone into labour.

Wolves team news 

Wolves XI: Patricio, Boly, Coady, Saiss, Doherty, Dendooncker, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny, Jimenez, Traore.

Subs: Ruddy, Joradao, Neto, Gibbs-White, Jota, Vinagre, Campana, Kilman, Burr.

Arsenal team news

Arsenal XI: Martinez, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac, Soares, Ceballos, Xhaka, Tierney, Saka, Nketiah, Aubameyang.

Subs: Macey, Bellerin, Sokratis, Lacazette, Torreira, Maitland-Niles, Holding, Nelson, Willock.

Early team news

Mikel Arteta is likely to make changes to his Arsenal team this evening. The Gunners have a tight turnaround between the two games and Arteta said some players’ fitnesses need checking.

In defence, Rob Holding is likely to come in as Sead Kolasinac may be due a rest after starting the last two games. Bukayo Saka is also primed to come in at left wing-back for Kieran Tierney – who has started the last three games.

On the opposite flank, Cedric Soares will hope to make his full debut after scoring off the bench against Norwich, while the midfield pairing of Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos should remain.

In attack, Nicolas Pepe is primed to come in after being rested on Wednesday and he could be joined by Eddie Nketiah. Alexandre Lacazette started against Norwich, but he failed to find the net.
