Wolves head to London today for their third away game in seven days, where they wiull face Arsenal at the Emirates stadium. They will be hoping for at least the same outcome as last season when they secured an unexpected 1 - 1 draw.
Nuno Espitrito Santo knows that he has a weakened squad as he heads into this game, as he will be without the injured Willy Boly (ankle), Ryan Bennett (groin) and Morgan Gibbs-White (back pain). However he remains upbeat that he has replacements within his squad capable of stepping up to the mark. Perhaps Leander Dendoncker will start at right centre back today as he filled that spot in the second half at Newcastle quite successfully, with Matt Doherty replacing him in midfield. Romain Saiss covered left center back last week and is likely to retain that position.
Meanwhile Arsenal have their own issues having already stated that captain Granit Xhaka will not be in their squad following his fall-out with the home fans last week, and they had a difficult game at Anfield midweek
This board will hopefully carry a commentary to keep fans abreast of the game, whilst members are encouraged to post their own observations for the benefit of those unable to view the game.

Neat play in the box by Jota but he fires wide for last play of the half. Wolves have played well and gone close on a couple of occasions, but Aubamayang took his chance cooly when it came. He and Lacazette can be very classy with the ball, but they have had to be very alert to stop us when we care in possession. Adama has shown some good flashes down the wing and coming inside, and Raul & Jota have linked up well. Neves has had two good attempts but too high on both of them.
Saiss brings down Martinelli in full flight & getsa deserbpved yellow card. Doc concedes a corner from free kick, which ends up going back to their keeper! Great chance for Adama but his pass to Doc is overhit for a goal kick!!
All over and Wolves leave with a well deserved and hard earned point. We played very well and did well to contain their dangerous attack. Arsenal fans clearly disappointed as they clearly thought they should have won - tough!!
Arsenal 1 Wolves 1
I was there. Aside from the Manchester City match, got to be one of our best performances of the season. We got off to a great start, high tempo and kept it going for much of the match. Arsenal caused us problems from time to time, however it would have been a travesty if we hadn’t scored the equaliser. A great team effort, really enjoyable, well played lads.
