Arsenal can boost our European qualification hopes with a win over Wolves at Molineux this evening.

We’ve been handed a big boost as Bukayo Saka is back after missing the draw with Man Utd due to a minor hip problem. The youngster replaces Gabriel Martinelli in the Arsenal attack this evening.

Dani Ceballos is also back in the squad after recovering from a calf injury but he has to settle for a place on the bench with Thomas Partey starting alongside Granit Xhaka in midfield.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also returns to the squad but he’s only fit for a place on the bench so Nicolas Pepe keeps his place in attack along with Alexandre Lacazette.

Cedric Soares starts at left-back with Kieran Tierney still out while Hector Bellerin, David Luiz and Rob Holding make-up the rest of the back four. Gabriel and Calum Chambers are on the bench.

Arsenal go with Emile Smith Rowe in the attacking midfield position so Martin Odegaard is among the substitutes as is Willian.

These are the teams for the game:


Leno, Bellerin, Luiz, Holding, Cedric, Xhaka, Partey, Pepe, Smith Rowe, Saka, Lacazette.

Subs: Gabriel, Ceballos, Willian, Runarsson, Aubameyang, Chambers, Elneny, Martinelli, Odegaard


Rui Patricio, Nelson Semedo, Coady, Boly, Kilman, Daniel Podence, Neves, Joao Moutinho, Traore, Willian Jose, Pedro Neto

Subs: Hoever, Silva, Gibbs-White, Vitinha, Ruddy, Dendoncker, Richards, Otasowie
