Arsenal will be guaranteed top spot in the Premier League at Christmas for the first time since the 2007-08 season if they win at second-bottom Wolves on Saturday.
The bad news for the Gunners is that they have not won the title when they have been top on December 25 on the previous five occasions when they have done so — but that will not deter the leaders from looking to at least retain their two-point advantage over second-placed Manchester City.
Wolves are in a state of transition ahead of their final Premier League game before Julen Lopetegui takes charge at Molineux. The former Spain manager starts work on November 14 so won’t be seen on the touchline until after the World Cup.
Here are the broadcasting details, as well as the latest team news and betting odds for Wolves versus Arsenal.

Wolves vs. Arsenal team news and lineups
Defender Jonny (hamstring) is a doubt for Wolves, as is midfielder Matheus Nunes.
Raul Jimenez is out with a groin injury and fellow striker Diego Costa is banned after being sent off at Brentford last month. Nelson Semedo is back available again after his own suspension.

For Arsenal, full-back Takehiro Tomiyasu sustained a muscle injury during the home win over FC Zurich in the Europa League on November 3 and is unlikely to be risked before he heads to the World Cup with Japan.
Young playmaker Emile Smith Rowe has had an operation on a groin injury and may not be ready to return until 2023.
Arsenal predicted lineup (4-3-3): Ramsdale (GK) — White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko — Partey, Xhaka, Odegaard — Saka, Martinelli, Jesus
Wolves vs Arsenal betting odds, prediction
Intermin Wolves boss Steve Davis says the spirit in the camp is better than it was when former manager Bruno Lage was sacked on October 2, but results have not improved and their odds reflect their run of one win in their previous eight Premier League games.
Arsenal have scored in all 16 of their Premier League meetings with the side who are the lowest scorers in the top flight this season, last failing to find the net in this fixture in 1979. That makes a prediction of Arsenal to win to nil seem the safest bet in this one.
