Arsenal head coach Mike Arteta will look to his side to maintain their promising form.
The Gunners are unbeaten in the league in 2021 and have only one loss in all competitions – to Southampton in the FA Cup.
But Arteta has noted many differences between his side, which goes to Molineux, and the one that lost in the return leg in north London in November.
Arteta said, “Well, definitely the results are much better.
“We improved a lot and got a lot more points from our games. It was a tough game back then. We started the game a little slowly.
“We conceded the goal, we scored, we dominated the game, but we conceded a goal in one of the counterattacks.”
“We expect a tough game. They are a team that have improved a lot over the years and that have achieved some great results against the big teams. That would be a good test for us.”
In the reverse game, the Wolves won 2-1 and have only won one league victory since then.
The injury that Raul Jiminez sustained following a collision with defender David Luiz was more remembered – which many experts have identified as the main reason for the Wolves’ poor form.
He said: “At first I don’t know what is good if you ask everyone how he feels, that it was a big shock for all of us when the incident happened.
We are all affected by injuries, coronavirus and the things that are 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. “
