Arsenal look to get their top four hopes back on track on Wednesday evening when they head to Molineux to face Wolverhampton Wanderers in a big Premier League match, but they will be without key players for the contest, according to their official website.
The Gunners will be looking to bounce back from their surprising defeat to Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon, and with rivals Tottenham Hotspur winning on Tuesday night, Unai Emery and his men know this is a game they can’t afford to slip up in.
Arsenal go into the match in fifth position in the Premier League table, but they will move back up to fourth with only three fixtures remaining if they can avoid defeat at Molineux, so the incentive is certainly there for them.
If the Gunners are to record a positive outcome in the midlands they are going to have to do so without a number of key players, as their squad gets stretched at this stage of the campaign.
Aaron Ramsey picked up a hamstring injury in the Europa League win in Napoli last week and has been ruled out of this match, while Arsenal will also be without Denis Suarez, Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Danny Welbeck.
Granit Xhaka has been hampered with a hip issue in recent times but he hasn’t been completely ruled out of the contest yet. The Gunners midfielder will be assessed on the day of the game to see if he can return in the heart of the midfield.
Whoever is fit for Arsenal, they are in for a tough encounter against a Wolves side who have spent most of the season causing problems for the big six in the Premier League.
The Gunners have been ordinary on the road this term, but they have won at Watford and in Naples in the last couple of weeks, which will give them some confidence here.
