Arsenal vs Wolves LIVE!

Arsenal thumped Wolves to finish their season with a flourish at Emirates Stadium. Granit Xhaka scored twice as the Gunners ended the campaign on 84 points - their highest points tally since the ‘Invincibles’ team took the title with 90 in 2003-04.

Xhaka posted a ‘Thank You Gunners’ message on Instagram prior to kick-off and put Arsenal on their way to a comfortable win with two early goals. Bukayo Saka curled in a superb third before half-time and Gabriel Jesus and Jakub Kiwior completed a rout.

Their title challenge may have collapsed in recent weeks, but Arsenal looked back to their best in this win. The only concern was Saka had to be substituted in the second after he was on the receiving end of some hefty Wolves challenges. Saka could now be a doubt for England’s two Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia next month.

Granit Xhaka gets perfect Arsenal farewell but decision over his future is sign of club’s bold transfer plans

21:55 , Jonathan Gorrie

Four years ago, the idea of Arsenal fans giving Granit Xhaka a standing ovation and singing for him to stay seemed unthinkable.

The midfielder was at rock bottom and desperate to leave Arsenal after a public falling out with fans and being stripped of the captaincy.

How times change, though, and Xhaka was given the perfect send-off by Emirates Stadium in what is expected to be his final game before he joins Bayer Leverkusen this summer.

Xhaka deserved the standing ovation too after scoring twice in the opening 15 minutes of a 5-0 thumping of Wolves.

Mikel Arteta lays down title challenge to Arsenal: ‘If we want to be the real deal, we can’t be happy’

21:54 , Jonathan Gorrie

Mikel Arteta says Arsenal cannot be happy with finishing second in the Premier League if they want to be “the real deal”.

The Gunners finished off the season by beating Wolves 5-0 at home on the final day to finish five points off champions Manchester City.

It capped off an impressive campaign for Arsenal, who scored a club-record number of goals and equalled their most wins in a single season.

Arteta, however, insists they cannot be satisfied with that as he challenged his side to compete for the title again next season.

Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard speaking out on the pitch: “First of all we are all a little disappointed after leading for so long and being so close to winning the league.

“At the same time I think we have to look at all the good things we have done and the progress we have made, if we look back one year and see how far we have come.

“I am really proud of the team. We will look back at the good moments and we are ready to keep pushing.

“I’m so proud, it is such a big honour to represent this club and as captain as well, I feel so connected to this club, the supporters and everyone. I love it.”

19:37 , Giuseppe Muro

Mikel Arteta is out on the pitch to thank Arsenal fans: “Together we have reconnected the soul of this football club and the soul of this football club is you guys.

“We know what is our destination to bring success, joy and trophies to this club but in the meantime please enjoy the journey.

“Thank you for your trust, patience and the unconditional love you are showing to the team, staff and the club.”

A perfect end to the season for Arsenal as they thump Wolves. Granit Xhaka with two goals as he gets the perfect send-off. Plenty of good performances, though, with Saka bright before he came off. After a tough few weeks, Arsenal fans needed this.

It had to be him! On what is all but certain to be his final appearance for Arsenal, Xhaka is in the right place to head the Gunners in front inside the six-yard box from a cross from Jesus.

Wolves switched off an no one tracked his run into the box but it is great movement from the midfielder, whose name is ringing round Emirates Stadium.

A bold call by Arteta to stick with the team that was so poor in the defeat to Forest last week. Kieran Tierney coming in at left-back seemed an obvious call. Perhaps this only reaffirms the growing view that the Scot is off this summer.

In case you missed it yesterday, Arsenal are interested in Galatasaray right-back Sacha Boey.

The Gunners are looking to add to their squad in the summer after missing out to Manchester City in the title race this season.

West Ham captain Declan Rice is Arsenal’s No1 target but manager Mikel Arteta is looking at reinforcements elsewhere.

Boey is understood to be of interest to Arsenal and full-back is an area that the club want to strengthen.

As well as Boey, the Gunners hold an interest in Valladolid right-back Ivan Fresneda and explored a deal for the 18-year-old in January.

Jose Sa, Max Kilman, Hugo Bueno, Mario Lemina, Matheus Nunes, Raul Jimenez come into the side, with Daniel Bentley, Craig Dawson, Ruben Neves, Daniel Podence, Pablo Sarabia and Toti Gomes dropping out.

Neves dropped in what may be his final game for the club.

Diego Costa, meanwhile, is not in the squad.

15:43 , Giuseppe Muro

Granit Xhaka starts in what could be his final appearance for Arsenal.

Reiss Nelson is fit enough for the bench having also shaken off an injury.

15:40 , Giuseppe Muro

So Bukayo Saka starts for Arsenal.

Mikel Arteta said this week that the winger has been struggling for fitness over the past few weeks, but he is fit and has been named in the team at Emirates Stadium.

Leandro Trossard is also fit and starts in a team that is unchanged from the 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest last weekend.

Thomas Partey looks set for another outing at right-back, with Jakub Kiwior at left-back.

Arsenal will be wearing their new home kit for the 2023-24 season, inspired by the legendary Invincibles.

The Gunners' latest Adidas effort features their traditional red and white home colours, with a zap pattern on the front and white sleeves.

The Adidas logo and shoulder stripes are both in gold, as is the Arsenal crest, paying homage to the 2003/04 Premier League title winners - the last Arsenal team to lift the trophy - that made history by going the entire campaign unbeaten with 26 wins and 12 draws.

In a further nod to the Invincibles, the authentic versions of the new kit have that record sewn into the side of the shirt.

The red back of the shirt also has the same zap pattern as the front, plus a golden zap coming down from the collar. The kit is complete with white shorts and gold trim and white socks with a red zap pattern on the back.

Today, adidas and Arsenal reveal the Arsenal home jersey for the 2023/24 season, marking the 20th anniversary of the ‘Invincibles’ season with a bold new look. (adidas)

Arsenal are vying for a fourth consecutive league win against Wolves.

Wolves lost 2-1 at Emirates Stadium last season but that is their only defeat in the past five visits.

Arsenal are two short of 100 goals in all competitions this season.

Gabriel can become the fourth outfield player to start all of Arsenal's Premier League matches in a season, emulating Lee Dixon and Paul Merson in 1995-96 and Nigel Winterburn in 1996-97.

15:12 , Giuseppe Muro

Today looks set to be Granit Xhaka’s farewell game at Arsenal.

The midfielder is expected to leave Arsenal this summer after seven years at the club with talks advanced over a £13million move to Bayer Leverkusen.

Mikel Arteta has hailed Xhaka for playing a “crucial” role in Arsenal’s development to become title challengers.

“For me, crucial,” said Arteta. “Really really important, on every level. I think for the team and for the club as well. In the great moments like the season he has had, and in the difficult ones.

Arsenal have completed their makeover of the outside of Emirates Stadium and the last piece of artwork has been installed ahead of today’s game.

The piece is titled ‘Found a Place Where We Belong’ and is inspired by a quote from legendary striker Dennis Bergkamp.

It depicts some supporters who have attended more than 350 matches at the Emirates since it opened in 2006, nominated representatives from Supporters’ Clubs and iconic fans through the ages.

Club staff past and present are also part of the piece. Critically acclaimed artist Reuben Dangoor spent over 20 weeks illustrating the piece and that is why it has only been installed now.

Fans will get the chance to see it for the first time then, with the Emirates’ new look now complete after the other seven pieces of artwork began going up in January.

Wolves’ only win away from home in 2023 came against Southampton, and they come against a side in Arsenal who, aside from their recent stumbles, have been incredibly impressive at the Emirates.

The Gunners look a world away from the team that led the Premier League for so much of the season, but they should still have enough here to finish the campaign in successful fashion.

Arsenal could be without both Bukayo Saka and Leandro Trossard.

Mikel Arteta explained both players have been struggling for fitness over the past few weeks.

“We had some issues this week - well, in the last few weeks - as you’ve noticed, some players were unable to play and to participate in the games, with Reiss [Nelson,]” said Arteta on Friday.

“We have a little issue with Bukayo, which has been going on, and with Leo [Trossard]. The rest I think are going to be fine.”

Arsenal will definitely be without Gabriel Martinelli (ankle), Oleksandr Zinchenko (calf) and William Saliba (back) for Sunday’s game.

Nelson, who missed last week’s defeat at Nottingham Forest due to illness, will hope to recover in time.
