Confirmed Arsenal line-up vs Wolves, Trossard starts

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has made one change to the starting line-up for today’s Premier League clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners have found momentum with four straight victories in all competitions. They will be aiming for a third successive league win in today’s meeting against Gary O’Neil’s side.

Ahead of the game, Arteta has made a solitary change from the 6-0 rout of Lens in the Champions League. Kai Havertz has made way for Leandro Trossard in the line-up.

Havertz has answered his critics over the past two games. The German scored a late winner against Brentford before opening the scoring versus Lens in Europe in midweek.

Despite this, Arteta has decided to go with Trossard, who is a more offensive-minded player.

The Belgian started in the centre of the park against Brentford last time around. He was unlucky not to find the back of the net after his goal was ruled out for a marginal offside.

Trossard is currently the club’s second highest scorer with six goals and the club faithful will be hoping that he can return to scoring ways against Wolves in today’s afternoon kick-off.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are one point ahead of Manchester City at the top of the table and have the opportunity to extend the lead with Pep Guardiola’s side only in action tomorrow.

Confirmed Arsenal line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Wolves: Raya; Tomiyasu, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Rice, Odegaard, Trossard; Saka, Jesus, Martinelli.
