Nuno Espirito Santo expecting ‘difficult’ clash against out of form Arsenal

Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has said that his team need to be at their very best to beat Arsenal, despite the turmoil surrounding the Gunners.

Unai Emery’s troops have only won two out of their last eight games in the Premier League and were eliminated from the Carabao Cup by a youthful Liverpool side in midweek. Captain Granit Xhaka has also been under severe pressure over the past week for his reaction after being substituted in the 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace.

Nuno believes Wolves will have to put in a top performance to profit from those difficulties.

Talking ahead of the clash, he said: “Arsenal is a totally different game and a totally different opponent, but we know it will be very, very difficult. Arsenal have a fantastic squad and a very good manager, so it’s going to be very difficult.

“It is a new game, history in football does not repeat itself. Arsenal have a lot of quality players, well organised, they have speed and have good quality with possession on the ball.

“We don’t look at the table. We compete against every opponent that we have in front of us in all competitions.”

Wolves sit at a price of 15/4 with William Hill to take maximum points from the Emirates Stadium.
