KICK off: 2 February 20:00
Information: Wolves were without three left-sided defenders against Palace, with Marcal already sidelined, Rayan Ait-Nouri being sent for scans following an injury against Chelsea, while Romain Saiss was reported to have picked up a knock. The latter is also being strongly linked with a last-minute move to Liverpool, so depending on what transpires over the coming days, Nelson Semedo could deputise on the left flank again. Adama Traore could also come back in for the hosts, but wholesale changes are unlikely given their numerous absentees, and Ruben Neves may not be involved after the birth of his child. Arsenal captain Aubameyang has returned to training after helping to look after his unwell mother, but it remains to be seen if he is ready to return to the pitch. Saka was left out as a precautionary measure against Man United with a sore hip but is expected to return to the fold here, but Kieran Tierney and Mat Ryan will not be available with calf and hip problems respectively. Emile Smith Rowe overcame fitness concerns to start at the weekend, but with Arteta affirming that he must be careful with his young guns, Martin Odegaard could make his first start for the club in midweek.
Prediction: Under 2,5 goals
