Arsenal sinks a little deeper into the crisis. The Gunners suffered their third straight home loss to Wolves. The match was marked by the serious injury of Raul Jimenez in an aerial duel with David Luiz at the start of the match. Stayed ten minutes on the ground in the penalty area, the Mexican would have been the victim of a fractured skull. Evacuated to the hospital, he fortunately regained consciousness according to Sky’s information. Despite the violence of the shock, David Luiz, head bandaged, resumed his place until the break before being replaced. The Gunners, who only scored two shots, remain stuck in 14th place in the Premier League. Worse, this is quite simply Arsenal’s worst start to the season since the 1981-1982 season!
Walcott was not enough to get Southampton to the podium

Nicolas Pépé suspended, Alexandre Lacazette on the bench for the second time in a row, Mikel Artera was counting on his captain Pierre-Eymerick Aubameyang to dynamise the solid defense of Wolves. But except for two situations at the end of the match, the Gabonese wandered like a lost soul on the lawn, unable to offer solutions and to be dangerous.
On the contrary, the opportunism of Pedro Neto allowed Wolverhampton to open the scoring (27th). Gabriel’s immediate equalizer (30th) upon receiving a cross from Willian should have put the Gunners back in the game. It has not happened. On the contrary, the restless Portuguese Daniel Podence restored the advantage to the visitors thanks to a magical dribble on Gabriel in full surface before concluding at close range (42nd).
Only ten minutes for Lacazette
The second half took place almost exclusively in the half of the field of Wolves, determined to suffer. The coaching of Mikel Artera – late entry of Alexandre Lacazette (80th) – did not allow his training to equalize. Apart from a relaunch fault from Rui Patricio exploited by Pierre-Eymerick Aubameyang, whose strike was pushed back to the line by Conor Coady (73rd), Arsenal had no serious opportunity.
The big blow is for Wolverhampton who join Southampton in fifth place. Nuno Espirito Santo’s team won at the start of the season at Sheffield United (2-0) and Leeds (1-0). Fourth best defense in the championship, it asserts itself as one of the PL outsiders.
