In yet another disappointing performance which gives us a record of three home draws in a row, Arsenal’s Man Of The Match Bernd Leno thinks that the game could have gone either way as the Gunners were simply not playing their best against the Wolves. Our keeper said: “I think both teams had many choices and at the end we could have won or lost, so the result is okay for the performance.”
Another poor performance escapes with a point by Konstantin Mitov
Hello lovely Arsenal people. Arsenal entertained Wolves and repeated a lot of trends that have been going for us all season so far. First of all, we started slow. Honestly the only game where we were up to the tempo from the get go was Liverpool.
Wolves have won in every match in London this season but no one thought they had a chance against an Arsenal team that hasn’t been beaten for 14 games and haven’t lost to Wolves since 1979, surely we will win this match?
So here is the team I predicted earlier and i wasn’t too far out…
Bellerin Sokratis Holding Kolasinac
Xhaka Torreira Guendouzi
I only got a couple wrong, but either way this should be enough for the Gunners to register another win.
Although Arsenal managed a very long winning run, three draws out of our last four games suggests that tiredness is creeping in, but with the amount of games we have been playing lately it is hardly surprising. But we will have to be alert against A wolves team that has been the surprise package this season after winning promotion last season. They have won a few games against lowly sides but have seemed to raise themselves for big games, drawing against both Manchester clubs and only losing narrowly to the Spuds last week.
There is good and bad news for Arsenal fans as we ain to extend our unbeaten run today against Wolves. Of course we won’t be seeing Danny Welbeck any time soon, which will limit our attacking options for the season ahead and Emery and the management team will have to decide how to fill his gap. I personally would like to see Emile Smith-Rowe given more chances as he always looks imprsseive when used in minor games.
In the summer there was talk of Uni Emery being open to offers for Danny Welbeck. The striker’s chances of earning a contract extension have been hurt by an injury which is expected to rule him out for the rest of the campaign.
It leaves Aubameyang and Lacazette has our only two fit senior forwards. Could this force us to do business in January?
The Arsenal youngster Reiss Nelson has been in amazing form since joining Hoffenheim on loan this summer, and has been scoring goals for fun, but today’s goal, his 6th this season, is even more impressive as he only came on with 6 minutes to go and had scored the winner within 2 minutes!
