Arsenal will visit Wolverhampton Wanderers headquarters on Thursday (04/25/2019) in their efforts to finish in the Champions League zone as well as sticking to eternal rivals, Tottenham Hotspur. The Gunners themselves carry the mission to rise after falling 2-3 from Crystal Palace at home at the weekend.
Tottenham’s 1-0 victory over Brighton on Wednesday (4/24/2019) did indeed hurt Arsenal. Because, those who currently collect 66 points from 34 matches, will not be able to overtake the rival who has 70 points from 35 matches. However, at least if subvert Wolverhampton on Thursday morning, Arsenal will shift Chelsea in fourth place.
On the other hand, Unai Emery, said there were disappointments from supporters and also players for the results obtained in the last match. Therefore, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and his colleagues are eyeing full points when they travel to Molineux Stadium.
“I knew there would be a reaction [after the Brighton counter], and the first reaction was quite strong. When we [won] victory, they [supporters] told us that [Arsenal] was the best. We [still] have the possibility to be third in the final standings and that’s good, “Emery said, quoted by the official Arsenal page.
However, the ambitions of the Gunners are predicted not to be easy considering the Wolves have a neat record when they meet the team of The Big Six. Manchester United and Chelsea are proof of the superiority of Nuno Espirito Santo’s foster children at home, while Manchester City were successfully defeated with a score of 1-1.
Only Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool as “members” of The Big Six have won 3 points at Molineux. However, the latter team must also recognize the superiority of Diogo Jota and colleagues in the FA Cup.
In a pre-match press conference, Nuno Espirito Santo said the Wolves began to get results from what they had built at the start of the competition. He also called his team continued to work hard and develop in every match.
“It is a clear idea [on this team] that we have been building teams since the first day [competition began]. We started the competition, and not much has changed [in the squad]. This is a squad and a group of people who want to work together and [continue to] improve their abilities every day, “said the Portuguese tactician, the club’s official website was quoted as saying.
Arsenal, which carried the mission, rose after falling at the end of last week predicted to appear more attacking, and more control of the game. The Gunners back line commanded by Skhodran Mustafi, will get special attention from Unai Emery, after a disappointing performance in the match against Crystal Palace.
While in the host camp, Nuno Espirito Santo, will continue to play with the scheme he has built since the start of the season, which prioritizes effectiveness, although it failed to give victory when meeting Brighton in the latest match. Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez were expected to remain a mainstay on the front lines of the host.
