Arsenal-Wolverhampton Preview

The fine line of survival for a promoted side in the Premier League often requires nicking points off the Big Six. Thriving instead of surviving comes with the occasional victory over such sides.

Then there is the case of Wolverhampton, who are in the thick of the hunt for Champions League places heading into a critical showdown Saturday versus Arsenal at Molineux.

When Wolves (13-13-6) re-entered the top flight in 2018 after a seven-season absence – a period that also included a drop into League One – they had performed a rebuild unlike few sides in English football. The squad have a heavy Portuguese flavor, coached by Nuno Espirito Santo and controversially constructed in some respects by agent Jorge Mendes, and eight players on the current Premier League roster hail from the Iberian peninsula.
