Will Wolves fans see the old version of Diogo Jota against Arsenal?

Wolverhampton Wanderers have hit their first real bump in the road following a return to the top flight after losing their last three consecutive Premier League matches.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side travel to fifth-placed Arsenal on Sunday for their next fixture and will need to play extremely well to get anything at the Emirates Stadium.

But ahead of the game the West Midlands club have been boosted by the confirmation that attacker Diogo Jota is back in contention after missing the defeat to Tottenham with a quad injury.

Jota is still yet to register a goal or an assist in the top flight, but could he rediscover his form from the 2017/18 campaign ahead of the clash with Arsenal?

Jota has made a slow start to the new campaign at Molineux, but did respond well to being benched recently against Brighton by coming on in the second-half to make a positive impact.

 

The 21-year-old left-winger is a technically gifted player that can hurt defenders with his pace and trickery, something that supporters became used to last season.

He scored 18 goals across all competitions last season for Wolves, before making his loan switch permanent in the summer from Atletico Madrid.

Jota has had a mini break to recharge his batteries and it will be intriguing to see if Nuno has him back to his blistering best at the weekend.
