Gunners hope of Champions qualification is under threat after Emery’s side defeat to Wolves at Molineux.
After a weekend when Manchester United, Chelsea, all dropped a three vital point Arsenal also fails to capitalize on these opportunities. They lost for the second time in four days dropping six points consecutively and this time in a truly chastening manner.
Arsenal displayed some of their worst traits to prompt concern for the run-in, but Wolves deserve huge credit for once more leaving a big club bloodied and bruised.
Even Emery admitted his own plans were left in shreds. ‘The second and third goals killed us,’ he said. ‘We needed to be more calm, to respect them for their moment. In 90 minutes we needed to impose our result against them but they were better than us, they were more strong in their game plan. Alto, we got one back when Sokratis rose to head in Xhaka’s corner but the result was not in doubt. I am angry with myself.’
