11/02/19 11 am
Over 2.5 (-138), Under 2.5 (+110)
Arsenal welcoming Wolverhampton to Emirates Stadium in one of the most interesting matches of round 11 in the English Premier League.
Arsenal has lost only 1 of their last 11 matches and hasn’t scored a goal in only 1 of those 11 games. With 16 points, 15 scored goal, and 14 conceded goals Arsenal is in 5th place in the EPL standings. In the Europa League Arsenal is at the top of their group with a maximum of 9 points. In their last EPL match against Crystal Palace at home, Arsenal had a solid match with 56% of ball possession, 6 shots on goal, 12 corner kicks, and 82% of correct passes. Arsenal had a 2-0 lead after the first 10 minutes but their defense was criminal in this match and the game ended in a 2-2 draw. Aubameyang is the leading goalscorer for Arsenal with 7 goals and is expected to be in the lineup for this game. There are no notable injuries in Arsenal and coach Emery will have his strongest players at his disposal. Arsenal is one of the best offensive teams in England and is playing attractive and nice soccer overall, but their defense is making a lot of mistakes and is not on a level that is expected at this club and that is the main reason why arsenal is dropping points. Arsenal is playing in the EFL Cup against Liverpool earlier this week but the lineup will be mixed and all the important players will get to rest to stay fresh for this match against Wolverhampton.
Wolverhampton is a solid team who is in the 12th place in the EPL standings but they are slowly getting in a good form and Wolverhampton hasn’t lost any of their last 8 matches. In their latest EPL match against Newcastle, Wolverhampton was a slightly better team with 57% of ball possession, 5 shots on goal, 6 corner kicks, and 85% of correct passes. Wolverhampton was losing this match 1-0 at the half time but they managed to tie the game in the 73rd minute and that was the final result of the match. Wolverhampton is filled with great players like Traore, Neves, Jota, Castro, and Jimenez who is their top goalscorer with 3 goals. Ofasu-Ayeh is the only injured player for Wolverhampton while Neves is at risk of being suspended if he gets one more yellow card. In the Europa League, Wolverhampton is doing good and is in second place in their group but in the EPL they still haven't shown their full potential on both ends. Nuno Espirito Santo is a great coach who is doing a good job in this club and Wolverhampton is a too talented team to stay this low in the Standings for long and I believe its only a matter of time before they start scoring more goals and conceding less. Wolverhampton is also playing in the EFL Cup earlier this week but most of the main players are on the bench being rested for the EPL this weekend.
Wolverhampton has won only 1 match against Arsenal and both teams are playing solid soccer and I expect this to be a fast and exciting match with a lot of chances and goals on both sides because neither Wolverhampton or Arsenal are playing good defense consistently.
