Arsenal head coach Mike Arteta will be looking for his side to maintain their promising form.
The Gunners are unbeaten in the league in 2021 and only have one defeat in all competitions – against Southampton in the FA Cup.
But Arteta has noticed plenty of differences between his side going to Molineux to the one that lost in the reverse fixture in north London back in November.
Arteta said: “Well definitely the results are much better.
“We improved a lot and got many more points from our games. It was a tough game back then. We started the game a little bit slow.
“We conceded the goal, we scored a goal, we dominated the game but we conceded a goal in one of the counter attacks.
“We’re expecting a tough game, they’re a side who have improved so much a lot over the years, who have picked up some great results against the big teams so it would be a good test for us.”
The reverse match saw Wolves win 2-1 and have only picked up one league win since then.
It was more remembered for the injury Raul Jiminez suffered after a collision with defender David Luiz – which many pundits have pointed out as the fundamental reason to Wolves’ poor form.
He said: “I don’t know first of all it what good to be ask everybody how he’s feeling it was a big shock for all of us when the incident happened.
We’re all getting affected by injuries, coronavirus and the things that’s going on, it’s really difficult to play a starting XI twice in a row so I think it’s the same for every team.”
