There’s no doubting that Wednesday’s trip to Wolves will provide Unai Emery’s side with a stern test.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have impressed in their first season back in the Premier League and have been especially strong at Molineux, drawing with Manchester City and beating Chelsea and Manchester United.
So how do we approach tomorrow’s match?
“[We need to] continue being proud of our season and knowing the key moments are now,” Emery said in his press conference. “Tomorrow is also a big moment and a big match for us, a big challenge because we are playing against a team who feel strong with their supporters.
“But it’s a good moment to try to do all we can, with intelligence. We need to be clear, we need to play with heart but above all being clear in our minds.
“They are going to push a lot tomorrow. I worked one thing here very quickly. We are playing against all of the teams and they want to battle us, fighting and playing with a big motivation.
“One is the motivation in the table for each player and one is the motivation against Arsenal. Every team wants to battle us because they respect us and also because it's important to try to win against us.”
