‘Arsenal went quackers’ – How the national media reported Gunners’ defeat to Wolves.
Arsenal suffered defeat for the first time in eight games on Tuesday night following a collapse against Wolves at Molineux and below we take a look at how the national media saw the eventful defeat. Arsenal were dealt a setback on Tuesday night when they suffered their first defeat in eight games against Wolves.
It looked as though the Gunners would continue their fine form after Nicolas Pepe scored with a brilliant solo effort in the first- half, and Arsenal also hit the woodwork twice during the first- half.
But during stoppage time of the first half, David Luiz was sent off and Ruben Neves scored from the resulting penalty, and Joao Moutinho scored the winner four minuted after the break before Bernd Leno received a red card for a rather obvious handball outside the area later in the second half.
As ever, you can find out coverage of the game on our dedicated Arsenal page here, but below we round up how the national media saw the eventful clash. Arsenal lost their first Premier League game since December 19 after red cards to David Luiz and Bernd Leno saw them fall to a dramatic 2-1 defeat to Wolves.
“The Gunners dominated the early proceedings and Nicolas Pepe deservedly put them ahead after finishing off a superb run with a curling effort from just inside the box.
“But on the stroke of half-time Luiz tripped Willian Jose in the box with the striker through on goal and was given his marching orders, with Ruben Neves tucking away the resulting penalty.
