Arteta singles out two Wolves players Arsenal should be wary of ahead of Molineux clash

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta is wary of the threat Wolves pose ahead of their weekend clash at the Molineux Stadium. 

The Gunners seem to have put the two consecutive defeats after the restart behind them as they have picked three wins in a row, including one in the FA Cup

They travel to face the only side to have picked three wins out of three since the restart, and who are chasing a Champions League spot. 

Speaking ahead of the match, Arteta heaped praise on their opponents, while also picking out Raul Jimenez and Adama Traore as the two players who can hurt them. 

"They have shown in the past few years how consistent they have been with their performances. They are a group of players, and a club with a manager that have been doing exactly the same thing for many years and you can see their style of play, and a very clear identity of what they want to do," he said. 

Adding; "They compete really well, a really clear gameplan of how they want to expose their opponent, very solid defensively and with some really good talent in forward positions that can win the game at any moment. A very complicated side,"

"They (Raul and Adama) link with each other really well. Their understanding, their movement, the partnership that they have... they are a big threat.

"I think Raul, the way he's settled in the country and the player he's become is as well because of the structure that he has in the team that his manager has created, and the players around him as well. Adama, I know him from his time at Barcelona, and he's a player that can unlock the door at any moment in the game," 

Arsenal are currently eighth in the standings with 46 points following their 4-0 win over Norwich, while their opponents are sixth on 52 points.
