Wolves were actually decent in possession, but ultimately the team just lacked the cutting edge at Molineux, something that continues to be a big problem.

Bruno Lage’s side knocked it around with confidence, but good quality chances were few and far between.

The quality of crossing was particularly poor.

Wolves huffed and puffed after Gabriel Martinelli was sent off for two yellow cards, but there was no way through the 10-man Gunners.

One man who again impressed for Wolves despite the defeat, was Daniel Podence.

The winger often looked the biggest threat in the game for Wolves. He was very lively and delivered several teasing crosses.

According to Sofascore data, Podence made five key passes in the game, which was by far and away the most of any player on the pitch.

He has been the form attacker for Wolves in recent weeks, and he was unfortunate not to get a goal contribution against the Gunners.

He may not have scored or assisted, but he is highly likely to keep his place in the starting XI for the next game.

If anyone is going to drop out of the attack, it will be Francisco Trincao.
