Arsenal vs Wolves LIVE: Latest Premier League updates


Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsdale mocks Leicester fans in Chip Inn Fish Bar advert

Follow all the action as Arsenal host Wolves in what could be a pivotal fixture in the Premier League’s top-four race.

The two sides meet for the second time in the space of a fortnight after Arsenal battled to a 1-0 victory at Molineux. Gabriel Magalhaes gave the Gunners an early lead and, although Gabriel Martinelli was sent off in the second half, Arsenal held on valiantly to take all three points. That result left Mikel Arteta’s side in firm contention to snatch a Champions League spot, with Arsenal currently four points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester United but crucially boasting three games in hand. Martinelli will be available again after serving his suspension while Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe were both on the scoresheet in Arsenal’s 2-1 over Brentford last weekend.

Wolves have recovered well from that defeat to the Gunners, with hard-fought victories against Tottenham and Leicester City, ensuring they remain in the running for a European spot. Bruno Lage’s side are just two points further back of Arsenal, having played one more game, and the Portuguese head coach insisted his players would not take any grudges into this evening. “It’s not about revenge,” he said. “After the game, we shake hands, say congratulations to them because they won and we move on, that’s the mentality.”

Follow all the latest updates from the Emirates Stadium below.

Hee Chan Hwang’s goal is the only thing separating the teams at the break. It’s his first goal for Wolves in four months. Will it be a winning goal by the end of the game?

Half-time: Arsenal 0 – 1 Wolves

45+2 mins: Wolves take a one goal advantage into the break but Arsenal will feel that they’re right in the game. It was a mistake from Gabriel that led to Hee Chan Hwang’s opener and Wolves haven’t created much since.

Alexandre Lacazette has been a nuisance for the Wolves centre-backs but the Gunners haven’t really tested Jose Sa as of yet.

Two minutes of added time to play.

43 mins: Close! Odegaard lifts the ball into the box for Martinelli’s run on from the left. He gets to the bouncing ball and tries to flick it over the goalkeeper but has no room to manoeuvre and knocks it into the hands of Jose Sa.

Arsenal have been knocking on the door for the majority of this half. They have to score soon.

37 mins: Chance! Lacazette has been involved in pretty much every one of Arsenal’s attacks so far and once again brings the ball into the area from the left. This time he cuts it back out of the box and sets up Thomas Partey. The midfielder takes a touch to set himself and then blasts one wide from a fair way out.

31 mins: Chance! Wolves give the ball away if their own final third and Arsenal pass it up to Lacazette. He shrugs off a tackle from Ruben Neves then hits a low left-footed shot from outside the box. He finds the target but can’t beat the goalkeeper who drops low to smother the ball.

28 mins: Arsenal’s press has been effective so far. For the last 10 minutes or so Wolves have been unable to play it out from their own half but the Gunners haven’t been able to capitalise… yet.

Arsenal 0 – 1 Wolves

25 mins: Ben White flicks the ball up to Saka but Saiss wins the ball in the air. Arsenal win the second ball though and it comes to Lacazette on the edge of the box. He’s taken out quickly but not before the ball comes back to Partey who threads it into the box for Saka. Saka halts his run at the last moment though and the ball rolls safely through to Jose Sa.
