It proved a frustrating afternoon for Arsenal fans as they lost to London rivals Crystal Palace, bringing an end to their 10-game winning run in the league at the Emirates.
However, they were without Aaron Ramsey, who has become the heartbeat of their team as they’ve gone W10-D2-L2 this season when he starts, with their only defeats coming at the hands of the two runaway sides – Man City and Liverpool – while stalemates at Spurs and Man Utd are hardly poor results.
By contrast, they’ve gone W10-D4-L6 without him on the field at the starting whistle, losing to all of Chelsea, Southampton, West Ham, City, Everton and Palace, and that is concerning as they face a well-organized Wolves side, although interestingly their goalscoring output does increase by 20% in Ramsey’s absence.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men will also be gutted by their performance at the weekend as a dogged Seagulls outfit held them to a bore draw.
They had 68% of the possession and didn’t concede a single shot on target throughout the 90 minutes, failing to make their chances pay and in doing so let some valuable points slip at Molineux.
However, they’ve still won an impressive four of their last six unbeaten outings here, not to mention cup wins over both Liverpool and United, and it’ll take a serious effort to turn them over.
Wolves v Arsenal Betting Tips
The hosts are a very respectable W5-D4-L3 from their 12 matches against the ‘Big Six’ teams across all competitions this season, including four wins from seven on home turf, although they have conceded in each of them.
In fact, they’ve conceded the first of the game in seven of their 10 such league outings, including each of the past four.
Moreover, against all teams they’ve conceded the first blow in each of their last three league matches where there has been at least one goal.
Meanwhile, the Gunners are W7-D4-L3 against the sides currently in the top half of the table since September, striking first in seven of the last nine of them, as one of the games they failed to score first against was the notorious fast starters, Man City.
In fact, against all teams they’ve gotten on the scoreboard before their opposition in seven of their last nine too and that looks a fairly solid option in this encounter.
The most likely man to score for Arsenal from the off is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The Gabon international has drawn first blood in six of the last 11 games in all competitions where he’s netted, and having scored in back-to-back Premier League outings, he looks to value bet.
