Everything you need to know ahead of the Premier League match at Emirates Stadium on Sunday

Arsenal head coach Unai Emery will be looking to continue their nine-game unbeaten run in the Premier League when Wolves come to town on Sunday.

The Gunners' last domestic match ended in a 1-1 draw with Liverpool and Emery's side have looked impressive since losing their opening two games of the season against Manchester City and Chelsea.

Wolves have played more league games against Arsenal without winning (eight) than any other opponent but will be hoping to change that when they face Emery's men this time around.


Arsenal Injuries


Danny Welbeck is ruled out with a suspected broken ankle following his shocking injury against Sporting CP , while Stephan Lichtsteiner is a doubt with a muscular problem.

However, Nacho Monreal could be available after he missed Thursday's match with a hamstring injury.

Mohamed Elneny, Laurent Koscielny and Dinos Mavropanos are ruled out.


Arsenal Suspensions


Arsenal have no suspended players for this match.


Possible Arsenal Starting Line-Up


Rob Holding looks likely to partner Sokratis in defence following their solid showing against Sporting.

Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira are expected to start in midfield and Alex Iwobi is likely to come back in for Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Alexandre Lacazette, meanwhile, will almost certainly start upfront.
