Unai Emery to bring big names back into 4-2-3-1 line-up for Wolves game

The Gunners are unbeaten since August although their form has dried up recently with three draws in the last four games across all competitions.

They come up against a Wolves side who started the season impressively, but have now lost three games on the spin – to Watford, Brighton and Tottenham.

Last night Arsenal drew 0-0 with Sporting in the Europa League to qualify for the knockout rounds, but the result was overshadowed by a serious injury sustained by Danny Welbeck.

The England international forward appeared to break his ankle and had to receive oxygen before being stretchered off the pitch and sent to hospital

There is some more positive injury news for Unai Emery though, with left-back Nacho Monreal set to return to the fold after a hamstring injury.

Laurent Koscielny is also close to a return from the Achilles injury sustained last season, and could even make the bench here – while Konstantinos Mavropanos is also closing in on a return from a groin injury.

Stephan Lichtsteiner picked up a muscle problem last night though, and Mohamed Elneny is still two weeks away from coming back from a thigh injury.

A victory on Sunday could see Arsenal return to the top four, as long as
Tottenham haven’t beaten Crystal Palace in the Saturday evening game.

Arsenal’s likely line-up (4-2-3-1);
Leno; Bellerin, Mustafi, Holding, Monreal; Torreira, Xhaka; Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Aubameyang; Lacazette
