A poor performance by Arsenal was compounded by a potentially serious injury to David Luiz and opponent Raul Jimenez, as a poor home record spanned three consecutive league losses.
A serious head injury against Raul Jimenez early in the first half resulted in the Mexican and David Luiz receiving treatment for 10 minutes after a serious collision after just four minutes.
His team still scored two goals in the first half. Wingers Daniel Podence and Pedro Neto both scored goals on either side of a Gabriel header.
Arsenal’s first Premier League goal in more than eight hours came in 37 minutes when Gabriel scored his second goal of the season to equalize for The Gunners after Pedro Neto scored the goal three minutes earlier, a goal that the Brazilian scored was partly to blame.
The Gunners fought creatively again. Joe Willock’s introduction to the league for the second year running did not materialize as the young English midfielder had limited space and opportunities.
Fans were frustrated when Willian was announced in the starting XI and preferred Reiss Nelson on the right.
The former Chelsea winger was unsuccessful as captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang failed to convert from a cross.
Aubameyang was frustrated again, his record remains two for the season, but he had a great chance to score when he headed a Hector Bellerin cross from close range in the second half and would have had a tap-in if It wasn’t for a great defense against Conor Coady towards the end of the first half.
It was a frustrating watch for the Gunners fans who have been so solid on the defensive this season, got caught off guard by the Wolves’ quick attack and made sloppy mistakes.
The same old problems came up again for Arteta’s team in attack. The lack of a creative outlet turned out to be costly. Failure to get the ball to their danger men and get Aubameyang into play limited Arsenal’s options and maintained poor attacking form this season.
Arteta got his tactics right, but his substitutions were wrong tonight. Alexandre Lacazette was introduced too late in the game to have any serious impact on the game.
Proving a more creative spark and opportunity for his team, Reiss Nelson could have started the game with the form he was in during the Europa League campaign.
David Luiz was sent off at halftime following a reevaluation of his head injury at halftime for Rob Holding, who looked solid after partnering with Gabriel as a center-back.
The injuries sustained in this encounter compound the need for a return to five substitutions or concussions, with both Wolves and Arsenal paying the price of a terrible chance injury and therefore limiting their tactical options.
Arsenal are the next Rapid Vienna hosts in the Europa League. The already qualified Londoners could offer chances to the youngsters before the away game against North London Derby next weekend in Tottenham.
Arteta’s side have to seriously improve their midfield and attacking departments to get a positive result in their biggest game of the season.
