Wolves 3 – 0 Arsenal FC Football Highlights
GOAL : 28′ Ruben Neves 1 – 0
Neves stands over the free-kick and as he’s done so many times before, he lifts the ball over the wall and picks out the bottom corner.
There’s absolutely nothing Leno could’ve done to keep that strike out! Wolves lead!
GOAL : 37′ Matt Doherty 2 – 0
Wolves go short at a corner and Arsenal are slow to react. Jonny floats the ball into the penalty area and Doherty, who beats the offside trap, has a free header.
Leno comes off his line but he’s in no man’s land as Doherty flicks the ball past him and into the empty net.
GOAL : 45′ 3 – 0 Diogo Jota
Shocking from Arsenal and they are well and truly punished by Wolves and Jota.
Arsenal lose possession in their own half and Wolves pounce. Jota bursts into the penalty area before firing a low shot past Leno, who should have done better.
The German goalkeeper will not want to see that again as the ball went through him and into the back of the net.
GOAL : 80′ 3 – 1 Sokratis
A lifeline for Arsenal as Sokratis rises above Neves in the six-yard box to head home Xhaka’s corner.
Is it the start of a miracle comeback or just a consolation?

Man Of The Match :
- Wolves have never beaten Arsenal in the Premier League in nine previous attempts (D2 L7), the most they have faced an opponent in the competition without victory.
- Arsenal haven’t lost against Wolves in any competition since September 1979 in a top-flight clash, winning 16 of the 20 meetings since (D4).
- Arsenal have won all four of their Premier League matches at Molineux; only at the KCOM Stadium (5) do they have a better 100 per cent win rate at a particular ground in the competition.
- Wolves have already beaten Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham this season. Only two promoted sides have ever beaten at least four sides to finish that season in the top six in a single Premier League campaign – Sunderland in 1996-97 and Blackburn in 1992-93.
- Wolves have kept a clean sheet in three of their last five Premier League home games, as many as they had in their first 12 at Molineux this season. They’ve only conceded once in each of the other two games.
- Wolves are unbeaten in their last six Premier League home games (W4 D2). They last had a longer run without defeat in the top-flight between October 2003-January 2004, when Arsenal eventually ended their eight-game unbeaten streak at Molineux.
- Arsenal won 1-0 in their last Premier League away game – they’ve not won back-to-back league games on the road since October, while they’ve not kept consecutive away league clean sheets since February 2016.
- All of Arsenal’s Premier League defeats this season have come on a Saturday or Sunday – they’ve won six and drawn two of their eight games played between Monday-Friday under Unai Emery.
