Wolves star issues Arsenal warning amidst bid to worsen Mikel Arteta’s woes.

Wolves will visit Arsenal in the late kick-off on Saturday, with the Gunners anxious to get their Premier League title chase back on track after a terrible last 10 days.

Matt Doherty has issued a warning to struggling Arsenal, saying: “We’ve taken plenty of big scalps this season.”

As the Gunners prepare to travel to the Black Country, hoping to breathe new life into a Premier League title drive that has been severely hampered by last week’s setback by Aston Villa, the Ireland international cautioned Mikel Arteta’s side.

The north Londoners’ Champions League setback to Bayern Munich in midweek has added to their strain, and a journey to Molineux, where they have lost twice in their last five visits, is no easy task. Doherty stated: “It’s clearly a massive game, and they still have a lot to play for.

“I’m not sure what their record is at Molineux, but I’m pretty sure they never have it that easy.” It will be another challenging game for them. Wolves have always taken scalps. This season, we’ve beaten Chelsea twice, Manchester City once, and Tottenham twice.

“For as long as I can remember, we’ve been capable of accomplishing things like that. They are going for the crown, but it will not be easy for them.”

Although Wolves appear to have little to play for this season, the 32-year-old believes the perception that Gary O’Neil’s team are ‘on the beach’ is far from the reality. He answered, “I believe that’s a myth. I’m not sure if that has actually happened to anyone mentally.

“I’m not aware of any club or management team that would ever approve it. I understand that some season-ending outcomes may lead to this conclusion, but this is never the case.

“We’re always playing for something, whether it’s finishing in a specific place to win more points and money incentives. Every point matters, and every position you finish in the league is important to us.”

O’Neil’s team has been strengthened by the return of the attackers who helped them so much in the first half of the season. Hee-Chan Hwang came off the bench in last week’s 2-2 draw at Nottingham Forest.

And Matheus Cunha, starting his first game after a hamstring injury, marked his return with a spectacular solo goal as part of a brace that earned a point at the City Ground. Doherty continued: “Obviously, we’ve had a lot of injuries, but a couple of the lads are returning now, and we can see the difference they make right away.

“I think we did quite well considering how many guys we were without, including Matheus. His first goal came last week.I don’t know anyone else on the pitch who could have scored that type of goal. It looked like he was at a dead end three times, but he managed to wriggle his way out and place it in the top corner.

“His quality is outstanding. I’m not sure if he’s an out-and-out nine, or if he aspires to be one. I believe he like to drop in and get on the ball; personally, I view him as a No.10 or someone who plays either side of the main striker. I’ve been blessed to play alongside many talented guys, and he’s one of them.”
