There will be plenty riding on a Premier League contest at Emirates Stadium as two top-four hopefuls go head-to-head in north London

Arsenal and Wolves are set to lock horns in the Premier League on Thursday for the second time in the space of 15 days, with both teams looking to chase down a top-four finish in the 2021-22 campaign.

It was just two weeks ago that the Gunners last met the men from Molineux, with Mikel Arteta’s side picking up a battling 1-0 victory in the West Midlands with 10 men after seeing Gabriel Martinelli controversially sent off.

They are set to do it all over again with just one place and two points separating the teams in the English top-flight table, with GOAL on hand to bring you all you need to know about how to watch, team news, recent form and more.

Arsenal have been in decent form of late, with only one defeat suffered through their last eight Premier League fixtures – with that solitary setback coming against title-chasing Manchester City.

They have slipped out of both domestic cup competitions in 2022 – at the hands of Liverpool in the Carabao Cup and Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup – but have been able to narrow collective focus as a result.

Wolves have continued to tick over nicely after overcoming a slow start to their season, with six victories taken from their last eight top-flight outings.

They are now sat within touching distance of the Gunners and will close to within three points of fourth-placed Manchester United if they are able to replicate the success they recently enjoyed in north London away at Tottenham.
