Given the knock sustained by David Luiz in Thursday’s win over Molde, Arteta may be forced to go with a back four against Wolves.

Reiss Nelson impressed in that European victory and Arteta hinted after the match that the 20-year-old may be rewarded with a first Premier League start of the campaign.

Fellow attacker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was used through the middle for the goalless draw with Leeds United, but the possible absence of Bukayo Saka and Willian could see Alexandre Lacazette recalled up top.

Elsewhere, Thomas Partey is among those struggling to overcome injury and Mohamed Elneny’s availability is unknown due to recently testing positive for coronavirus, so it may again be a midfield axis of Granit Xhaka and Dani Ceballos.
