Wolverhampton Wanderers had to wait over 41 years to win again at Arsenal. Now it was that time again. The Wolves sat
But in the fifth minute the big shock: David Luiz and Raul Jimenez crashed badly on a corner for Arsenal - it was followed by a ten-minute injury break. While the Brazilian, who had suffered a cut on his forehead, was able to continue with a thick bandage, it was over for the guests' Mexican top scorer. Fabio Silva came for Jimenez, who was carefully taken from the field on a stretcher and immediately taken to a hospital. Thanks to a strong first half, they ultimately earned 2: 1 - but the win had a bitter downer.
The incident than did not have a major impact on the performance of the Wolves, in whose game there was no break, rather they even took the lead: Dendoncker headed the crossbar after a fine Traoré cross before Pedro Neto dusted off (27th). However, the Gunners replied immediately: Following a corner, Gabriel got the header - and made it 1: 1 (30th).
It went back and forth, which was also due to the fact that defensive gaps kept opening up here and there - but overall the Wolves were more dangerous. Dendoncker failed with a head to Leno (34th), Pedro Neto did not fare better shortly afterward. But because Podence followed up well, snatched the rebound, then skilfully took Gabriel out of the game, and ultimately pushed in (42nd), the guests nevertheless went into halftime with a lead.
Gunners run up - in vain
After the break, the Gunners, now without David Luiz, acted with more courage, they started up more and took more risks. Wolverhampton, however, lurked on the perhaps decisive counterattack - the tension increased, although noteworthy deals were rare. It should stay that way in half two. Arsenal tried hard, but kept getting stuck - and in the end received their third league home defeat in a row.
