Wolverhampton - Arsenal: prediction "X'

Wolverhampton face Arsenal in the 24th round of the Premier League. The Wolves were involved in one of the sensations over the weekend after being eliminated from the FA Cup after a minimal 1-0 loss to Norwich. Wolverhampton have been playing very good football lately and it was definitely surprising to lose to a struggler to survive in the Premier League. The Wolves have won four of their last five league games and conceded just one goal each against Southampton and Brentford.

Arsenal are not in a good period and will hope for better results in the coming weeks. The unfortunate loss to Manchester City by 2: 1 on the first of January with a goal in the last minute of Rodri, seems to have had a negative impact on the self-confidence of the players of Mikel Arteta. Since then, Arsenal have not won all tournaments. The Gunners were eliminated from the FA Cup by a 1-0 defeat by Nottingham Forest, and in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup Liverpool defeated them after 0-0 at Anfield and 2-0 at the Emirates.

In their last match in the Premier League, Arsenal drew 0-0 with Burnley, hinting at their problems in front. With the exception of 1-2 better positions for Alexander Lacazette and Emile Smith-Rowe, Arsenal almost did not put pressure on the defense of the Wine Reds. After a convincing performance in December, perhaps few expected the Gunners to score just one goal in their first five games in 2022.

Wolverhampton is one of the most uncomfortable rivals for the top teams in the Premier League. The results of the "Wolves" especially as a host are eloquent. In nine matches against the top 10 teams, the 1.5-goal line has not been skipped, and the most common result is a 1-0 win or loss. Given that Wolverhampton's form is currently better, I expect another difficult 90 minutes for the guests. Zero draw or minimal success with 1: 0 for the "Wolves" seems to be the most logical outcome in this clash.
