Wolves putting the pressure on. Getting all the 50/50ms from the ref as well. Never helps

Xhaka toed the ball first on that foul, and then clear holding on Saka. Booo, need to get out and relieve this pressure and if decisions start going against us we're going to find that increasingly difficult. we need to stamp some authority back on the game. They're bypassing the midfield and finding Jota et al pretty well.

Brilliant hold up play from Aubameyang to relieve the pressure, draw the foul and the yellow card

Amn was clearly fouled, not given he then wins the ball and is booked. It was an aggressive tackle but Michael Oliver is turning the tide here

Great energy and pressing to force that mistake. Exactly the attitude we need

Yeah I agree you can be strong but Traore just barged into him with no attempt to play the ball. Annoying.

What a first touch from Lacazette there! Really good news for us if he can start to contribute again. Ooooh, nearly three!! 3 points anyway, what a turnaround from the club.

Wolves have been kings of the legal barge this game. Right on the edge and never penalised

Great result.

Well done boys - I don’t think anyone had a bad game.

Credit to Mustafi for the brilliant clearing header that set up the second. He and Luiz played very well.

So did Xhaka and Ceballos. For once we looked solid through the middle.

Really really good. I’ve seen us play with verve and swagger and beat some poor teams 4/5-0 in the last 2-3 years. But that performance is something we just haven’t seen from us.
2-0 and it could have been more. I can’t remember Martinez making a save.
The discipline and positioning of the whole team was brilliant. The work rate and closing down also went 90 minutes.
I loved how even in the last 15 minutes when you expect an avalanche of pressure it was us with the press, us forcing the mistakes and creating chances.
It was the most mature performance I’ve seen from an Arsenal team for years. Wolves are a damn good settled team and are chasing champions league on merit. That is a fantastic away victory

Couldn’t agree more. The set up suits them all. Masks the weaknesses. Mustafi was absolutely huge in the air tonight, the height and distance he was getting on his clearing headers were brilliant.

Loved the fight in the team tonight

A few unsung players with big performances.
AMN has such fight in him and pocketed Traore.
Martinez excellent again, loved his calm claiming of crosses.
Mustafi very very good again

We’re still in a huge battle just for Europa League places so I can’t go overboard but we kept a very good wolves team totally quiet today

Any outside chance of champions league (including 5th place) are very very slim. Man U are steamrollering teams, have an easy run in and are 5 points ahead.
Chelsea might be stuttering but I can see them beating watford and Norwich at home which would put them 11 points in front and we only have 5 to play.
Leicester are too far ahead. There’s your top 5.

The outcome of City’s appeal on their European ban could be very interesting if it is Man U that finish 5th!

I think Europa League will go down to 8th if City’s ban is upheld. I’d be happy to snatch one of those places right now. Still another 3 really tough games coming up

What a great result.

It wasn't pretty but we got the job done.

I think we are too far adrift for top four now with a really tough run-in. We would have to more or less win every game and I can't see us doing that.

Shame we lost to Brighton, a win there might just have given us a fighting chance.

I think what really pleased me about today's performance was it does look as if the players are buying into Arteta's philosophy which is based on non negotiables and a more meritocratic approach to team selection. I think Wolves are better than Arsenal at the moment but we battled and played with an intelligence we haven't seen enough of in recent times.

I've been out for a pint. Thoroughly enjoyable and even better with that great result. Sounds like we deserved it too.

3-4-3 is the best formation to get the best out of this squad? We are still going to have Luiz next season and most probably he'd still get a lot of games - seems like three at the back favours him. I had just taken a look at this season's league stats - he has made the most starts among our defenders.
Another interesting stat is that only 4 players have made 25 or more starts out of 33 games so far. I guess that partly explains why we have struggled this season - we do not have a settled first 11. Liverpool have 8 players with 25 or more starts in the league so far.
