Wolverhampton Wanderers remain the only team in the Premier League to have won every game since the restart of the top flight after the global pandemic outbreak.
Following Chelsea’s 3-2 defeat away at West Ham United, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are the only team to have had a 100 per cent record since England’s highest division resumed, winning their matches 2-0 away from home against the Hammers, 1-0 at home to Eddie Howe’s AFC Bournemouth followed by their most recent win in another 1-0 victory, this time away at Dean Smith’s Aston Villa.
This time they come up against Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal at Molineux, who have been on a mini run of their own having won their last three games in all competitions, beating Southampton 2-0 away at St. Mary’s Stadium before knocking out Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United side 2-1 in the FA Cup quarter-final at Bramall Lane, and finally thrashing Daniel Farke’s Norwich City 4-0 in their first match back at the Emirates Stadium.
Nuno went with a 3-5-2 formation in their last outing at Villa Park, making one change from their previous game against Bournemouth as Leander Dendoncker provided an extra man in the centre of midfield, with Adama Traore dropping out.
Should Nuno start Traore for Wolves v Arsenal?
Given that the Portuguese coach played a 3-4-3 system in his last home match against the Cherries, and that Arteta set his side up exactly the same in the Gunners’ game against the Canaries, Wolves are arguably likely to set up with the 3-4-3 again to match the Emirates outfit.
Dendoncker may feel himself unfortunate to drop out again having scored the winner against Villa, but the Belgian international may make way for Traore to come back in:
The 24-year old has already score four goals and made nine assists in 31 appearances in the Premier League so far in the 2019/20 season, according to Transfermarkt, as Nuno may want to set him off as an extra man in the attack against AFC’s relatively leaky defence, having already conceded 41 goals so far in this league campaign.
