Hello and welcome to Telegraph Sport's live coverage of the Premier League match between Arsenal and Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Emirates. Arsenal will be without record signing Nicolas Pepe as the Ivory Coast forward is banned after his red card for headbutting Leeds United's Ezgjan Alioski during the 0-0 draw last weekend. For Wolves, Conor Coady has returned to training after missing Monday's 1-1 draw with Southampton. He was forced to self-isolate and pull out of the England squad this month after coming into contact with someone with coronavirus and missed his first Wolves league game in over three years. Romain Saiss has also been self-isolating and will not feature tonight. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, meanwhile, has admitted "something is missing" from his side as they look to end a wait of nearly eight hours for a Premier League goal from open play. As Wolves arrive at the Emirates, the Gunners have taken just one point from their last two fixtures either side of the international break. A 1-0 win at Manchester United on November 1 came courtesy of a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang penalty and appeared to promise progress for Arsenal under Arteta. But a 3-0 defeat at home to Aston Villa and a goalless stalemate at Leeds saw them head into the weekend seven points adrift of the leaders and without a goal from open play in the league for 476 minutes. "The position probably that I believe we should have been in and where we are at the moment, it's two games (difference)," said Arteta. "That's four to six points and it makes the whole difference and the small margins where we lose the game or win the game, it's incredibly narrow. "We are on the edge of winning or losing a football match and we again are humble and conscious of that and at the moment we don't have to steal those margins and any game is going to be really difficult." Sunday marks a year since Unai Emery was sacked as Arsenal head coach - with Arteta eventually appointed as his replacement last December.
