Match Thread: Wolves vs Arsenal FC

Wolves v The Gunners

By Wolves
April 24 2019

In their penultimate home game of the season and following Saturday's disappointing home draw against Brighton, Wolves will tonight hope to regain 7th spot in the Premier League against the team hoping to finish in the top four.

Once again - and amazingly - head Coach Nuno Espirito Santo has a fully fit squad available to pick from for this test against Unai Emery's Arsenal, in the hope of extending his team's unbeaten home run. After the failure to adopt different tactics for the visit of lowly Brighton, who defended en-masse and proved difficult to penetrate, fans will be keen to see how the team lines up against high flying Arsenal and their proven goalscorers such as Aubameyang and Lacazette, and will no doubt be peased to see the absence of Aaron Ramsey.  

This board will hopefully carry some form of commentary for its members, who are also encouraged to post their observations for those unable to follow the game.

One change in tonight's line-up as Morgan Gibbs-White returns to the bench and is replaced by Dendoncker,and despite his impressive performance as a sub on Saturday Ruben Vinagre starts on the bench. So the 'usual team' starts.

Line-up: Patricio, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Doherty, Dendoncker, Neves, Jonny, Jimenez, Jota

Subs: Ruddy, Saiss, Vinagre, Gibbs-White, Costa, Cavaleiro, Traore

Interestingly Ozil starts for Arsenal and Aubameyang isn't even on the bench!!

24/04/2019 19:24
This will be a difficult match to predict, all depends on which Arsenal team turns up. Hoping that with all the changes made by Emery the Gunners will be a little disjointed.
Cmon lads!!

Evening LH I agree and I think it may finish honours even.
Our referee tonight is Stuart Atwell

Joao earns free kick outside their area but puts a poor ball in.

A'nal get first shot away after Boly error but high & wide

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 19:54
A'nal are at least attacking us! They get first corner & look dangerous around our box

Cheshire wolf

Neither team really clicking yet. Mistakes being made by both teams

Cheshire wolf

Doc pulls back Monreal on the edge of our area & gets a yellow card - too early in the game really. Texeira hits ball straight at our wall

Good passage of play - Doc sets up Joao & he curls a good shot just wide. Atwell penalises Jota for 50:50 tussle

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 20:11
Long throw from Bennett headed on by Boly & Raul gets a foot to it but over the bar with two defenders around him

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 20:14
Great break by Jota feeds Jonny & he's brought down by Monreal. Fantastic free kick from Neves outside the area into left corner!!
Wolves 1 Arsenal 0

Jonny runs feeds Raul who slams it over the bar. Wolves showing great speed on the break.
Koscielny runs into Jota to stop Jota, Xhaka argues & gets a yellow card. Neves free kick gets a corner, Bennett heads wide

Corner between Boly & Joao ball put in & Doc converts Ishtar a header

Texeira gets yellow card for jumping in to a tacklie without connecting
Two added minutes to play

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 20:33
Diogo Jot breaks and takes it all the way shoots and Leno can't keep it out despite getting down to it. Superb goal
Wolves 3 Arsenal 0

24/04/2019 20:35
This is the sort of game when you just wish you were there!! It tool Wolves about 15 minutes to get into their stride, but since then they have been superb in all areas of the pitch a Arsenal don't know how to cope with them. They have capitalised on Arsenal errors and scored 3 great goals

24/04/2019 20:36
Hi again Chesh. Back online.
Seems an abject performance by Arsenal so far.

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 20:52
They have had their moments LH but Wolves have really capitalised on their mistakes. Wolves very well organised and disciplined & not looking like they played on Saturday!
Mel Eves scored the winner last time we beat them at the Mol in 197, so fingers crossed we can keep this going tonight. Would love to see Jimenez score now as he works so hard. No changes to team at half time

24/04/2019 20:52
Evening, Im in thurso of all places -bloody freezing up here but this scoreline certainly gets the blood flowing. We're a strange team its fair to say

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 20:56
It's a good game to watch Angry, and to see the antics of Arsenal when they are up against it, especially from Torreira. Ozil not happy either!!

Great break by Leander & Raul, who puts a super cross over for Jota but he just fails to control it. They connect so well, but they also defend as a pair when needed

24/04/2019 20:59
Well they arent happy on their messageboard its fair to say grinning smiley pity im on a dodgy mobile device up here

24/04/2019 21:02
Ref did us a favour there— should have been a penalty against Bennett

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 21:02
Michytarian & Torreira replaced by Kolasinic & Gundouzi for Arsenal.
Corner to Wolves

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 21:05
I must say I haven't had a lot of time for Stuart Atwell since he sent our Hungarian midfielder (who'se name 8 can't recall) off at Arsenal in Mad Mick's time, but he is doing well tonight in fairness

24/04/2019 21:06
Hi everyone - in Wales at the moment - what a great score! UTW

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 21:09
Evening Wolverina I'm in Wales too, but probably not near you!!
31,426 at tonight's game. Arsenal have had 72% possession in both halves but struggling for ideas.

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 21:11
Super play by Jonny to set up Raul, but he hits it miles wide. Shame

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 21:13
Good play by Arsenal in to our box but Rui still hasn't had to do anything!!

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 21:19
Iwobi replaced by Nketiah and he looks fast. Good break by him to set up Lacazette but Bennett is there to block him.
At the other end Jota gets a corner Joao takes it but it breaks down

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 21:21
Cavaleiro- who scored at the Emirates - replaces Diogo Jota who has been out Man of the Match in my opinion

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 21:24
Wolves make an error in midfield so Boly gives a corner away which is headed in by Sokratis
Wolves 3 Arsenal 1

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 21:25
Raul Jimenez gets huge applause deservedly as he is replaced by Traore

24/04/2019 21:26
Traore in a forward position. Hurray.

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 21:28
Bennett blocks Nketiah and gets an obvious yellow card. Arsenal looking much more interested now and have earned two corners. We need to stay solid and well organised with five minutes plus added time to go

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 21:33
MGW replaces Joao Moutinho who has had another very good game. Into the last minute of normal time

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 21:34
As we enter 4 minutes added time Arsenal get a free kick in dangerous area but Rui takes it well for his first save of the game

24/04/2019 21:36
FFS blow the whistle! I'm in Presteigne, Cheshire!

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 21:37
Traore looks promising when he has the ball but he does nothing else & knows nothing about the need to defend

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 21:37
MGW earns a corner to see out time

Cheshire wolf
24/04/2019 21:40
That's it!!! 41 years since we beat then at Molineux and 40 years since we beat them anywhere!! Great win for Wolves who played out of their skins once they settled down. Arsenal were disappointing but who cares!!
Back in to 7th place and now we go to Watford seeking revenge!!
Good night all

24/04/2019 21:48
Fantastic effort by all of the players and a well deserved victory.
Ten out of ten to the crowd who didn’t stop cheering the lads on for the whole game.

Great performance by everyone. Arsenal may have had the lion's share of possession but did very little with it which I like to think was down to our organization, apart from their goal it was injury time before Rui had to make a save.
Jota just about MOM for me but all played well.

Thanks Cheshire. Let’s hope we get another 3 points at Watford. Great result.

Pleasure to have witnessed that. Just got home, work at 8am. It’s all worth it to see us tonight.Wonderful Wanderers!

Nite nite and UTW!!
