Arsenal ravaged by Wolves in further blow to their Champions League hopes

Ozil was impressive

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has launched a passionate defence of under-fire defender Shkodran Mustafi, after the German global made two errors against Crystal Palace at the weekend.

Nuno's Wolves side however do not have a good recent record against Arsenal as they have not beaten the Gunners during the previous nine Premier League games played between the two teams.

Gunners fans were optimistic going into the game, with just a point taking them above Chelsea into the top four.

"This is what we focus on until the end, there's no thinking about the summer or next season, it's a game by game process". We are in a position with a big possibility of making our first target. We have a big game against Manchester City, so we will see if we're ready.

In Aubameyang's absence, manager Unai Emery opted to put Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette through the middle with Alex Iwobi and Henrikh Mkhitaryan providing support in wide areas. "I told him 'You are young, you can improve and you need to work hard because you have a big quality for a centre back'".

Manchester United's players are well aware of the importance of Wednesday's Premier League clash against champions Manchester City and need no extra motivation after a 4-0 hammering at Everton, defender Ashley Young said.

"Why we did it is because we believe that the more time they spend together, and the more chance they have to compete together, they will become better".

Arsenal fans will naturally suggest otherwise, but a back-five consisting of two players who have barely kicked a ball this term - Konstantinos Mavropanos and Carl Jenkinson - can perhaps vindicate conceding three goals.

"The strength of Arsenal is their team, the movements, the ideas they have".

Granit Xhaka could come back into contention following a hip injury, with fellow midfielder Denis Suarez also being assessed following a groin complaint.

But despite so, the club management seems to have made a decision to bring in some new faces at the club next season, to as to challenge more strongly for both domestic and continental success.
