Former Chelsea striker Chris Sutton has predicted that Arsenal will beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-0 at the Emirates in their final Premier League game on May 28.
The Gunners have had a fantastic campaign, finishing second in the standings behind Manchester City. However, there were disappointments when at the top of the table for 248 days, Mikel Arteta’s men were unable to lift the title. Their recent streak of just two wins in eight has kept them out of the title race.
However, Sutton reckons the north Londoners will put aside their recent lackluster form and end the season on a high. In his prediction for the BBC, the expert wrote:
“Nothing is important in this matchup for either side but Arsenal will want to end a successful season by putting in a performance in front of their own fans. They have lost the title race in the Premier League. the past few weeks but this is their chance to sign with a positive performance and I think that’s exactly what they’re going to do.”
“There’s a bit of concern for Wolves when there are doubts about Julen Lopetegui’s future because he’s done his job very well – they were at the bottom when he took charge in November. Their season going well, but there could be an uncertain summer ahead at Molineux.”
Current form of Arsenal and Wolves entering round 38
weapon has 81 points after 37 matches and is 8 points behind leaders Manchester City. They are going through two defeats to enter the match against Julien Lopetegui’s team. Gunners won only 2 of the last 8 matches.
wolf, meanwhile, have 41 points after 37 games. They are 13th on the table and have not won in the last two matches, drawing one and losing one. Lopetegui’s team also won only 2 of the last 5 matches.
With a win, the Gunners can end their season on a strong note. Despite the late slip-ups, it’s been a remarkable season for Mikel Arteta‘steam. They finished 5th last season but have had a stellar performance this season.
Meanwhile, Wolves can overtake Chelsea in 12th place if they get a surprise win and the Blues lose to Newcastle United in their final game.
