Arsenal desperately need a win over Wolves at Molineux this evening in order to boost our chances of finishing in the top four.

Granit Xhaka is passed fit to start in midfield as he’s recalled alongside Lucas Torreira. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang isn’t named in the matchday squad due to a sinus problem so Alexandre Lacazette starts up front.

Sokratis returns in defence with Shkodran Mustafi dropping to the bench while Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi join Mesut Ozil in attack.

These are the teams:


Rui Patricio, Coady, Jonny, Doherty, Bennett, Boly, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Neves, Jota, Jimenez

Subs: Cavaleiro, Helder Costa, Gibbs-White, John Ruddy, Saiss, Ruben Vinagre, Traore


Leno, Maitland-Niles, Sokratis, Koscielny, Monreal, Torreira, Xhaka, Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Iwobi, Lacazette

Subs: Cech, Elneny, Mustafi, Guendouzi, Kolasinac, Nketiah, Willock
