Arsenal’s lineup against Wolves sees seven changes made by Unai Emery, with a change of system and personnel suiting an away game, as Lacazette and Ozil start.
Unai Emery has fielded a strong lineup to contain the threat of Wolves with a change in formation and personnel. Sokratis, as expected makes a swift return to the starting lineup after serving his two-match ban and takes his place alongside Laurent Koscielny in central defence.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles takes up the right-back slot, while Nacho Monreal is preferred over Sead Kolasinac at left-back.
Bernd Leno is the apparent choice between the posts, but there are changes in central midfield. Mohamed Elneny and Matteo Guendouzi are replaced by the returning Granit Xhaka, who missed the Crystal Palace game through injury, and the Swiss midfielder partners Lucas Torreira here.

Emery has also changed the attacking face of his team to face Wolves. Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alex Iwobi start the game on either side of Mesut Ozil, who finds himself in a rare starting position in an away game this season. Alexandre Lacazette is the preferred choice as the central striker ahead of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
There are a few surprises on the Arsenal bench too, with Aubameyang entirely out of the squad, while Eddie Nketiah takes his place there. The likes of Guendouzi, Elneny, Shkodran Mustafi, Kolasinac and Joe Willock are available as options for Emery.
