The impressive Emirates

By Wolves
November 11 2018

Wolves travel to the Emirates stadium today in an effort to stop their run of losing games

Nuno Espirito Santo faces a daunting challenge today taking his team to the Emirates to face Arsenal who are unbeaten in twelve games. Wolves will be hoping to stop their run of three consecutive losses in order to consolidate their position just outside the Premier League top ten. Nuno will undoubtedly be concerned that his team have not scored in open play since the win at Crystal Palace, and have conceded six goals in the last three matches. However he maintains that Wolves will not change their approach to games. Diogo Jota is reportedly fit to play today, and it remains to be seen how big a role in the game Morgan Gibbs-White has following his widely praised substitute appearance against Spurs.

 

The team is unchanged from last week's starting line-up:

Patricio, Bennett, Coady Boly, Doherty, Neves, Moutinho, Jonny, Costa, Jimenez, Cavaleiro

Subs: Ruddy, Dendoncker, Vinagre, Saiss, Gibbs-White, Traore, Jota

Wolves start confidently with usual line up. Nuno knows Emerai fro their time coaching in Spain, so they have an added challenge today.

Good play by Cav down the left, but his cross goes over Raul.

Another worry for me is that our ref today is Stuart Atwell who cost us the game here in McCarthy's time when he wrongly sent Milijas off!

Cav did the attacking down the middle, then a one-two with Raul & Cav finished it nicely

Fantastic start. We usually defend well so fingers crossed.

Great attacking play out of our box up to Arsenal area but Raul nudged off the ball - no foul

Costa Doc & Neves link up well, Ruben goes for the big finish puts it high & wide.
Good save by Rui
Costa has a shot blocked & Raul goes in on the goalie but he's OK

Fabulous shot from Costa well saved. Wolves soaking up the threat from Arsenal at the back well - so far!!

Costa feeds Raul who has a snap shot but it goes wide. Costa is having an excellent game so far

And they're starting to whinge when things don't go their way. In fairness Atwell is having none of it

1 minute added time, but Arsenal have a corner.

Whistle goes

Arsenal 0 Wolves 1

Some great play in all areas by Wolves, who have defended from the front and attacked from the back. Costa, Cav & Raul have been linking up really well, and Neves & Joao have made some superb passes to them. Coady is once again in command at the back, well supported by the rest of the defence, Jonny have largely negated the threat from Bellerin down the right wing. All to play for for another 45 minutes.

Ready to go again Arsenal replace Iwobi with Gengdouzi (or something like that!!). No changes for Wolves. Arsenal didn't have an attempt on target in first half

Wolves have gone sloppy in their passing in past few minutes. Corner to Arsenal

Costa nutmegs Holding & is then blocked off by corner flag - free kick. Comes to nothing but then Jonny gets another!

Jota being prepared, not sure who he should replace as our front three have played really well. Arsenal have their first shot on target from a corner & Rui deals with it.
Jota replaces Cav - he has played very well

Wolves have a period of much improved possession, Costa puts in a fine cross cleared by Mustafi.

Arsenal really are out of sorts with some of their play. 22 minutes to go and Wolves still lead by one goal to nil, and look very confident in their play

First yellow card goes to Ozick for dissent due to real frustration. Dhaka puts a great ball across our area and Bellerin puts it over the bar

Aubamayang hits the post and misses a certain goal!! It might just be our day!!

Costa goes down & indicates he wants Tom come off, so Traore replaces him.
Ramsey on for Klasinac & Mickitaryan replaces Ozil

Wolves defending very well, but struggling Tom do something with the ball in possession or to get it to Traore. 7 minutes to
Fab break by Traore for Jota but he lets the goalie save it!! No confidence in the shot. Raul replaced by MGW

Doc down with blood round his right eye & needing treatment on the pitch.

Rui made a good save from Ramsey which led to the cornerwhich then led to the goal

5 minutes added time, but that's likely to be a minimum
Doc patched up & OK now

Good result and I would have settled for a draw beforehand but a real bummer to come so close.

6 added minutes played & that's it

Good game to watch. Wolves should have won it as they had really good chances to get a second, but let Leno keep us out. Fortunate equaliser for Arsenal

It’s late, just got home.

That was a superb day and outstanding game of football!

Gutted we didn’t win. Defended so well for long periods and the chances towards the end beggar belief how we didn’t get the 3 points!

Well played Wolves. Proud.
