ameweek 22 of the Premier League season kicks off tonight, with four matches to offer plenty of drama up and down the table.
The second 6pm GMT kick-off sees Arsenal travel to Wolves as Mikel Arteta’s Gunners look for another victory to build on their recent results and momentum. Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolves have had a tough campaign so far, and the manager badly needs a result at Molineux to ease the pressure.
There is still plenty of drama left this evening, with Manchester United aiming to bounce back from failing to win their last two League games as Southampton head to Old Trafford. Ralph Hasentuttl’s Saints are in something of a slump off the back of two straight defeats, but with United lacking confidence as well, it could be a cagey affair at the theatre of dreams.
Last but not least, Roy Hodgson takes Crystal Palace to St James’ Park to face Newcastle. Four points separate the two sides, and while they are both well clear of the relegation zone, three points for either would be most welcome ahead of a potentially gruelling run-in.

95 mins: Late free-kick for Arsenal, and Arteta sends up Runarsson to… take it? It’s a decent delivery to be fair, but that sums up the match for the Gunners… and that’s it!
There’s just nowhere for them to go with nine men.
93 mins: Wolves have a breakaway and the chance to close out the game, but it’s a really poor finish. Still time for Arsenal…
91 mins: Runarsson not exactly inspiring confidence here as Arsenal try to play it out from the back, and he plays it out for a corner. Odd to say the least.
89 mins: Aubameyang – on as a sub – almsot finds space in the area, but sees a half-volley blocked out.
86 mins: So, Wolves have yet to add to their lead despite a two-man advantage – but Arsenal are surely tiring now.
Red Card for Leno!
Disaster for Arsenal as Bernd Leno comes to clear a long ball outside his area, but gets it all wrong and manages to clear it with his arm! Despite a VAR review, he’s sent off – and Arsenal are down to NINE men.
Wolves 2-1 Arsenal
67 mins: Arsenal are still trying to find a way through. That Luiz red completely changed the complexion of the game, but there’s plenty of football left to be played this evening.
