I'd take a draw here, tough place to go and we've really struggled against Wolves since they've come up. We haven't beaten them once, hopefully Arteta keeps with the 3 at the back, it's definitely our most solid formation.

With all the floundering going on around them Wolves must be thinking this is a chance to get a top 4 spot? If they play their cards right they could get a CL spot next year.

Wolves win or a draw for me. Wolves are showing a lot of fight and would truly deserve a top 4 spot.

Who would have thought Wolves would be going into this game thinking a draw here would be unacceptable?

Unfortunately, that's the state of Arsenal at the mo. Realistically, Wolves will be looking at this thinking '3 points'. I mean bar Aubameyang, nothing else would scare you.

They should start Traore. I know they are very strict to their formation and like to bring him off the bench but he is the sort of player who could really have Arsenal on strings here, especially with their system.

3 at the back again, good to see. Saka returns but Pepe is completely out as his wife is in labour. I suppose we are matching Wolves' 3-5-2. I don't see Auba or Nketiah playing wide right.

Nicely finished from Saka to beat Patricio.

Brilliant by Saka. This would be a massive and unexpected result if we get the 3 points.

Adama for Wolves is a massive guy, and looks really quick for his size.

Didn't expect that at all. Wolves never got going at all. Arsenal were on their game and didn't seem to get in to their top gears. Good result for others in top 4 race.

Superb win today, glad Arteta committed to 3 at the back its really paid dividends and we have now won 4 on the bounce. Arteta is surprisingly defensive, interesting to see if that's due to personnel or how he likes to set up his teams. Either way he has turned things round very well since Brighton.

Hopefully Lacazette has a good run of form toward the end of the season. Could do with some mugs paying some money for him in the window.

Makes the Brighton defeat more frustrating really, a game we threw away.

We've looked a much better side since Arteta took over. I hope this isn't a new manager bounce thing and we keep on improving.

Like I said it would say we are favourites against you. I don't think we can catch you but it would be  nice to have a good end to the season. The break has definitely affected Leicester quite badly but at the same time all clubs are in the same boat. However I would be desperately disappointed not to get into the champions league if I was a Leicester fan. What is your fan base like? You don't seem like a club that has a toxic fan base?

There have been signs of improvement. We need to give him a season.  We can't expect a quick fix like some toxic fans expect. There is one particular toxic fan on here who's name I wont mention.

I don't think it's that. We didn't really have that to be fair.

I wouldn't say it's that toxic but there are some proper bellends though, as there are with all clubs to be fair. 

Far too many fans just love to moan and whine about any little thing though. That's annoying.

It would be quite frustrating to miss out on CL when we've virtually been top 4 positions since start of the season or thereabouts. That run in Oct/Nov really set us up and then we lost form in December.

Well I'm not totally sold, especially after the Brighton game, felt he had quite a bit of luck and didn't really impress me. Obviously time will be given but we can't sit on our hands if he isn't what we expected. He is learning on the job still, as it is his first managerial role and I do think the club will support him. 

Jury is still out but I do think he'll be given every opportunity. Hopefully we can have a pretty good squad revamp this upcoming window.

Wolves were shocking. Really poor from them. But in some ways, I think it showed that maybe Champions League is too soon for them.

Look at how far back they are on the goal difference. We know they keep clean sheets but they don't have enough goals in the team. If Jimenez doesn't do it, where is the support?

They need to find more goals because there is only so many times, you can keep churning out 1-0 win's.

Credit to Arsenal for the win but more importantly, the clean sheet. Not massively tested though, let's be honest, but for Arsenal, three clean sheets in a row in the league is like gold dust for them.

Emi Martinez has been outstanding since Leno went down injured. Actually think he could be the better goalkeeper. Obviously early days, but from this small sample size he seems to be a lot more well rounded than Leno. I know Arsenal fans love Leno but I think he thrived in a shite team and considering he is a superb shot stopper it made him look a lot better than he is.

I actually  personally don't think he will work out. But I think he needs to be given time.

Dang I thought Arsenal were supposed to be awful? I had a 2-1 Wolves win in my prediction league.

Definitely the worst prediction league on the planet.

I don't actually think you will get another chance for a few years unfortunately. I don't think we will either. I think it will be city,liverpool, man utd and Chelsea for a few years now. Kind if like the big 4 we had about 10 years ago. The only thing I think will change that will be if the Newcastle deal goes through
