Wolves goalkeeping coach Tony Roberts has urged supporters to create an uncomfortable atmosphere for Arsenal at Molineux tonight.
Wanderers are taking on the Gunners in what is a huge Premier League game.
Bruno Lage’s side stand to leapfrog Arsenal in the table with a win, and confidence should be high after a strong January.
Wolves won all their games last month, with Arsenal failing to win a single one. The Gunners also only scored one goal.
But Wolves do come into the game on the back of a disappointing defeat to Norwich City in the FA Cup.
Lage went relatively strong against the Canaries. But it was a very underwhelming display, and a response is needed tonight.
It’ll be important for Wolves to really take the game to the north Londoners.
And goalkeeping coach Roberts has called on those going tonight to get behind the team and make life uncomfortable for Arsenal.
He tweeted: “Looking forward to hearing you all in the Den tonight. We need to make our home feel uncomfortable to whoever enters it. The Pack is strong and with us all together, we will get stronger.”
Team news will arrive shortly, but Lage will be able to call on Romain Saiss again following his stint at AFCON with Morocco.
The defender was given last weekend off to recover. It’s likely he will come back into the starting XI tonight in place of young Toti Gomes.
Gomes has done fantastically well in Saiss’ absence. But the 31-year-old has been a colossus at the back this season for Wolves along with Conor Coady and Max Kilman.
A rowdy Molineux can help Wolves to victory against Arsenal tonight
Tonight is a great opportunity for three more points for Wolves.
Arsenal may be a Big Six side and above Wolves in the table. But the Gunners are erratic, and come into the game in bad form.
Wolves should be feeling confident despite that loss to Norwich.
There should be a huge incentive to win with Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur both dropping points over the last couple of days.
If Molineux is rocking, there’s every chance Wolves can stifle Arsenal.
