Steve Cooper is under pressure again, Billy Gilmour returns to Chelsea and will Postecoglou’s luck turn?

The good news just keeps rolling in for Arsenal. They are closing in on agreeing a new deal with Ben White and it is the latest evidence of an efficient approach that avoids the kinds of muddle they have seen in the past when contracts run down. White’s deputy at right-back, Takehiro Tomiyasu, played superbly in the rout of Lens but the Englishman may return to the starting lineup for Wolves’ visit on Saturday. Mikel Arteta and Gary O’Neil, old adversaries in their playing days who have forged a firm mutual admiration as managers, may wish to discuss their respective VAR-related grievances if a spare moment presents itself. Wolves will hope to cause a surprise but Arsenal and White, their recent performances as clean and clinical as the club’s off-pitch dealings, hope for the kind of unfussy victory that has become a richly promising hallmark of late.
