Arsenal are surely in must-win territory when they travel to Wolves

Arsenal are surely in must-win territory when they travel to Wolves in the Premier League tonight.

After falling to a shock home defeat against Aston Villa on Sunday, the Gunners were knocked out of the Champions League quarter-finals on Wednesday night with a 1-0 loss away at Bayern Munich.

While Mikel Arteta’s side obviously remain in the picture in the title race, the standards set by Manchester City surely means they will need to win every game they have remaining.

Wolves, meanwhile, have been one of the surprise packages of the season and have pulled off some big results at home, though are currently in the midst of an injury crisis.

Nelson Semedo, Craig Dawson, Matheus Cunha and Pedro Neto are all out for injury-hit Wolves, along with Jean-Ricner Bellegarde, Noha Lemina and Leon Chiwone.

Rayan Ait-Nouri may return to the bench, while Gary O’Neil could hand a surprise debut to 15-year-old right-back Wesley Okoduwa, who would become the youngest player in club history.

For Arsenal, Jurrien Timber is the only absentee as he works his way back steadily to full fitness, though Arteta may be tempted to make changes after those back-to-back defeats by Bayern and Villa. Gabriel Jesus is among those looking to return, along with Oleksandr Zinchenko.
