In the last match, they tied in a home match against Crystal Palace, by (2‑2), after in the previous match they have lost (1‑0) an away match against Sheffield United.

In this competition, they haven't lost in their stadium in 5 matches.

Arsenal heads into this match with low motivation after being eliminated from the English League Cup by Liverpool. Unlike the opponent of this round, Arsenal usually plays in 4-4-2, favoring a style of game of constant transitions, where the two most advanced are Aubameyang and Lacazette. The two great qualities of the house set are the way they can get around a disadvantage and the ease of creating danger situations. Coach Unai Emery will not be able to count on Nelson for being injured.
The away team is currently in the 12 th position of the league, with 12 points won, after 2 wins, 6 draws and 2 losses. In the penultimate round, they have tied a home match against Southampton by (1‑1). In the last match, they tied in an away match against Newcastle, by (1‑1).

In the league, Wolverhampton have won 6 points out of 15 possible, after 1 win, 3 draws and 1 loss in the last 5 away matches. Defensive consistency hasn't been their best feature, as they have conceded goals in 7 of the last 10 matches, but their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition. This is a team that scores only a few times first: they only opened the scoring in 2 of their last 10 games for Barclays Premier League, 2 of which reached the halftime lead by 1 and won at the end of 90 'in all. In 10 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have never been able to turn the score around.
Wolverhampton comes unmotivated for this round after being eliminated from the English League Cup by Aston Villa. Unlike their opponent of this round, Wolverhampton usually plays in 5-3-2, where the two most advanced are Diogo Jota and Jiménez. The visiting club when investing in the offensive process usually does so through the left side, taking advantage of the depth offered by left back Jonny Castro. The coach will not be able to count on Bennett and Boly for being handed over to the medical department.
