Wolverhampton Wanderers - Wolves FC

Here we have with us the Arsenal player ratings as they defeat Wolves with just 10 men. The match was a tough fight between both teams and Arsenal were lucky to find the back of the net first. Wolves also had several chances to level the score, in fact, they had more chances than Arsenal. However, they suffered a loss as they failed to find the goal.

Arsenal opened the scoring in the 25th minute with a corner. Gabriel was quick to pounce on the open chance he got from Lacazette‘s attempt. Later, in the second half, Martinelli was given two yellow cards in the same play. Meaning he was sent off for two challenges in the same play.

Wolves had a few good chances to score but were unlucky to not find the back of the net. Lacazette had a chance to double the score but he also somehow fluffed it and failed to kill the game. Wolves were still trying to score but were saved by the heroics of Aaron Ramsdale and some good defending.

However, they will have to continue this form to fulfill their goal. Wolves have been a tough nut to crack but they have to find ways to find the back of the net.

Aaron Ramsdale – 7/10

He was comfortable in the first half but had to be at his finest after Martinelli’s red card.

Cedric Soares – 7/10

A solid defensive performance from White who dealt well in one vs one situations.

Gabriel – 8/10
