Wolves 3-1 Arsenal: Hapless Gunners miss the chance to move into Premier League top four

Arsenal’s away form did further harm to their top four ambitions after being torn apart by Wolves at Molineux.

The Gunners only needed a draw to leapfrog London rivals Chelsea into fourth but goals from Ruben Neves, Matt Doherty and Diogo Jota in the first-half set Wolves on their way to a 3-1 win.

Arsenal have lost their second game in the space of four days

Sokratis Papastathopoulos headed a reply late on but Unai Emery’s side have won just six times on the road this season and still face tricky trips to Leicester and Burnley.

Arsenal became the latest of the division’s top-six clubs to taste defeat at Molineux, where Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United have also been beaten this season.

The victory enhanced Wolves’ own chances of securing European football for next season as they moved back into seventh place – which will be enough for a Europa League spot should Manchester City win next month’s FA Cup final against Watford.
