In a shocker of a team news update, Tomiyasu and Emile Smith-Rowe both miss out on the Wolves game tonight.
Martinelli leads the line up top with Saka, Lacazette and Odegaard. Partey and Xhaka in the middle and Ramsdale in goal, Tierney, White, Gabriel and Cedric make up the defence.
Subs are: Leno, Holding, Tavares, Swanson, Elneny, Lokonga, Hutchinson, Pepe, Nketiah.
Looks like ESR is ill, and Tomiyasu still has a problem with his sick calf, this time it’s the other calf according to Arteta:
“Yes, it was the other calf, so he came back and he was completely fine, and in training he felt the other calf. So this is an issue because he’s a professional, who is giving absolutely everything to help us, and in the last few months he’s not been fit…”
Let’s not forget Martin Atkinson is the ref, so if we get anything out of this tough-looking game, we’ll have to deal with him as well as the XI Wolves players. Last time out, despite the ref’s best efforts we still managed to win at Molineux…
ArsenalShorts Prediction: 2-1 Arsenal with a late winner from Lacazette 😉
