With Title Disappointments Behind Them, the Gunners Look to End Season on High | Team News, Injury Updates and Predicted Lineup – Arsenal vs Wolves

Arsenal vs Wolves

Let’s take a look at the team news as Arsenal aim to conclude their Premier League campaign on a positive note when they host Wolves at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday in the last league game of the season.

The Gunners find themselves trailing Manchester City by eight points in the Premier League title race. Their hopes of staging a remarkable comeback have been dashed due to disappointing defeats against Brighton and Nottingham Forest, effectively ending their aspirations.

While their title dreams may have faded, the North London side can still reflect on a successful season overall. Securing a victory in their final game against Wolves would allow Arsenal to achieve their highest points tally in a Premier League season since the 2007/08 campaign, where they amassed 83 points and finished in a respectable third place.

Injury/Suspension List:

Wolverhampton Wanderers enter the upcoming game without any new injury worries, but it could mark the final appearance in their distinctive gold strip for several players as the summer transfer window approaches.

Ruben Neves is anticipated to attract interest from multiple clubs during the off-season, while Adama Traore is likely to secure his long-awaited move away from Wolves. Both players may be given starting roles on the final day of the season to showcase their abilities.

Although Sasa Kalajdzic suffered a cruciate ligament injury shortly after joining the team, ruling him out for the remainder of the season, he will have the opportunity to experience more Premier League football when the competition resumes later this year.

Arsenal’s injury concerns have worsened at a highly inconvenient moment, as Gabriel Martinelli had been ruled out for the season due to an ankle injury sustained during a challenge from Brighton’s Moises Caicedo. In addition to Martinelli’s absence, it had already been reported that William Saliba (back) and Oleksandr Zinchenko (calf) would be unavailable for the remainder of the campaign.

Although Saliba made a surprising appearance in team training last week, manager Mikel Arteta has confirmed that he will not feature again this season. The Frenchman is unlikely to recover in time for the upcoming match, while Mohamed Elneny and Takehiro Tomiyasu, who are both dealing with knee injuries, will also miss out.

Player To Watch Out For – Matheus Nunes

One of Matheus Nunes’ notable skills is his ball control. He has excellent technique and is comfortable receiving and controlling the ball in tight spaces. He has a good first touch, allowing him to quickly transition from receiving the ball to making the next play. His ball control enables him to maintain possession under pressure and create opportunities for his team.

The Portuguese midfielder also showcases strong dribbling skills. He is confident with the ball at his feet and has the ability to navigate past opponents with quick and agile movements. He can use his close ball control to maneuver through tight spaces and bypass defenders, creating openings for himself and his teammates.

In addition to his technical skills, the 24-year-old is known for his work rate and tenacity. He is a hard-working midfielder who covers a lot of ground on the pitch. Nunes is not afraid to put in a tackle, press opponents, and win back possession for his team. His energy and determination make him an asset in both defensive and offensive phases of the game.
