Wolverhampton Wanderers v Stoke City - Premier League 2

Match Preview: Wolverhampton vs Arsenal

Wolverhampton will welcome Arsenal to the Molineaux on Wednesday night for their postponed meeting of the 31st round in the Premier League.

“After the four games that we’ve played, there’s been a lot of doubts in the team and I think it’s a game where we can put those things to bed.

“We’re playing Chelsea and we’ve beaten them three times in the last four games, so we have a good record against them, but we know it’s always different playing at Stamford Bridge. They won the league last year so we obviously know they are a very strong team.

“With [Antonio] Conte there, they work really hard, they do very well tactically, so we have to be ready for the challenge and we know as a team we can beat them because we’ve done it before. Now it’s up to us to turn up and do things right.”
