Arsenal team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers

Arsenal will be looking to build on their 4-0 drubbing of Norwich City when they travel to the West Midlands to lock horns with fellow European hopefuls Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

The Gunners have temporarily moved up to seventh in the table following their victory against the Canaries, although bitter rivals Tottenham Hotspur could leapfrog Arsenal if they manage at least a draw against Sheffield United on Thursday.

Nevertheless, Arsenal are firmly in the running for a European place as the season enters its closing stages, but they are now facing four challenging fixtures against Wolves, Leicester City, Spurs and Liverpool as they endeavour to break into the top six.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Arsenal's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their trip to Molineux.
