Mesut Ozil makes his second Premier League start of the season while Nicolas Pepe has been benched as Arsenal get set to take on Wolves.
Unai Emery has made two changes to the side that was held to a 2-2 draw by Crystal Palace last weekend as Arsenal prepare to welcome Wolves to the Emirates.
Bernd Leno starts in goal after being rested for the Carabao Cup tie against Liverpool. The back four from last weekend remains unchanged, with Kieran Tierney and Calum Chambers retaining their places as the full-backs, while David Luiz has Sokratis as his partner at the heart of the Arsenal defence.

Granit Xhaka does not make the starting lineup as was suggested by Emery during his pre-match press conference on Friday. In his stead, Lucas Torreira starts as Arsenal’s holding midfielder. In what appears to be a midfield diamond, Torreira will sit at the base.
The big update is that Mesut Ozil has managed to impress Emery enough to make the starting lineup to face Wolves. Ozil will be at the tip of the diamond, with Dani Ceballos and Matteo Guendouzi completing the midfield quartet. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette form the strike partnership, but there is no place for Nicolas Pepe, who starts on the bench.
Arsenal Starting XI: Leno; Chambers, Sokratis, Luiz, Tierney; Guendouzi, Torreira, Ceballos, Ozil; Aubameyang, Lacazette
