Wolves would love to extend their favourable record against the Premier League's top six after being held to a frustrating 0-0 draw with Brighton at the weekend.

Nuno's side have already picked up 13 points from a possible 30 against the heavy-hitters this season, and everyone is fit and ready to face the Gunners.

"Totally different, every game is a new game and nothing repeats in football," said Nuno when asked if Nuno Emery's men are a lot dissimilar to the Seagulls.

"Against Brighton, it’s difficult to explain how a team like us, how dominant we were, weren’t able to find the net.

"That’s the only issue where we have to improve regarding tomorrow."

Wolves have beaten Manchester United and Chelsea in the league at home this season, and Liverpool and United in the FA Cup.

They also drew 1-1 with Manchester City in the league at Molineux early on in the campaign.


"We are ready to compete against all the opponents. When we look at Arsenal, we know they are a very strong team with good players and a good manager and it’s a tough challenge, but we are ready for it," said Nuno.

And on if Wolves be keeping a close eye on the Gunners' 19-goal striker Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, Nuno added: "We are ready to play against Arsenal, not individuals.

"The strength of Arsenal is their team, the movements, the ideas they have. They are very good."
