FT: Arsenal 1-2 Wolves!! All over at the Emirates Stadium and Wolves take home the points. Neto put Wolves ahead, Gabriel quickly levelled and Podence made it 1-2 before half-time in an open game, but the match will be remembered for the horrific head injury Raul Jimenez suffered after clashing heads with David Luiz. There were no goals in the second half and despite plenty of Arsenal pressure, Rui Patricio had few saves to make. A huge boost for Wolves and another setback for Arsenal.
94'
Arsenal look for one last attack, but times runs out and the referee blows for full time!
93'
The Gunners are throwing players forward, but Wolves have been quite comfortable, to be honest.
91'
Neto is cynically fouled by Tierney as that was a promising attack.
91'
Four extra minutes.
89'
Coady brings down Lacazette and is deservedly carded.
88'
Another corner won by the Gunners.
88'
Lots of attacking by Arsenal, but they are not testing Rui Patricio enough.
87'
Holding is booked for throwing the ball away after being penalised for fouling Traore.
85'
Wolves counter through Neto, but Dendoncker is unable to control the pass and it's a goal kick.
84'
Shots: 12-11, on target: 2-5.
83'
Nelson is penalised for handball.
82'
Aubameyang!!! Bellerin's cross in headed wide by the striker!.
81'
Arsenal sub: Lacazette comes on for Xhaka.
80'
Willock's curling shot is deflected behind for a corner.
79'
Wolves sub: Kilman replaces the substitute Fabio Silva.
75'
Nelson!!! Saka's cross back into the middle is chested down by Nelson and he then shoots over.
74'
Arteta's men have been better in the second period and I think they deserve a draw.
73'
What was Rui Patricio doing?? He stupidly gets dispossessed outside the box by Aubameyang, he shoots and Coady clears just a couple of yards in front of the line!
71'
Tierney's ball into the box is cleared by the Wolves defence.
70'
Wolves sub: Neves on for Podence.
69'
Bellerin fouls Neto and gets cautioned.
68'
Host broadcaster Sky Sports says that Raul Jimenez is conscious in hospital and responding to treatment. Great to hear after the horrific images earlier.
65'
Arsenal sub: Willian is replaced by Nelson.
64'
Holding!!! A seond corner is taken short, Saka cuts back from the byline and Holding heads over.
64'
Arsenal win a corner now. Incredibly open.
61'
Neto goes down holding the back of his head, Bellerin tries to pick him up and Joao Moutinho takes exception to that. "No lo toques" (don't touch him), Moutinho tells the Spaniard.
60'
Tremendous defending by Bellerin!!! Arsenal lose the ball in their own half, Podence makes a lovely run into the area and his shot is blocked by Bellerin.
58'
Willian's free-kick flies over the bar.
57'
There was a bit of contact on Traore so he was maybe unlucky to get booked for diving even if it weren't a penalty.
56'
Fabio Silva has a swipe at Saka and even though he pulls out, that was dangerous. He's deservedly booked.
55'
Willock gets a corner for the Gunners.
54'
Tierney goes down this near side and his cross is cut out. Wolves counter, Traore falls in the box under pressure from Gabriel and is booked for diving.
53'
He's ok, fortunately.
52'
Gabriel gets hit the face by Moutinho's shot and the referee stops play immediately.
51'
Fantastic play by Neto on the far side after a pass from Podence and Gabriel has to concede the corner to prevent the ball reaching Silva.
50'
Chance for Arsenal!!! Bellerin runs towards the Wolves goal and he passes for Saka who can't turn the ball in.
49'
Saka's cross in is cleared by the Wolves defence.
48'
Moutinho is penalised for a foul on Xhaka.
46'
Boly gets the first card of the game after a cynical foul on Aubameyang.
46'
Second half started!!
45'
Arsenal HT sub: David Luiz is replaced by Holding. I'm surprised he played 45 minutes to be honest.
45'
HT: Arsenal 1-2 Wolves!! Half-time at the Emirates in an exciting game which has been overshadowed by a very nasty head injury to Raul Jimenez after clashing heads with David Luiz. Pedro Neto put Wolves ahead after 27 minutes, but Gabriel levelled shortly afterwards. Podence then put Wolves back in front as Nuno's men up their game. Both teams have attacked in what has been an open half, but Wolves have been the better. Back soon!

45+10: Arsenal pressing towards the end of the half, but no major chances.
45'
45+7: Dani Ceballos is down injured after being caught in the face by Podence in the face and the Arsenal man wants a pen. Anywhere else on the pitch and that's a free-kick...

45'

45'
45+2: Tierney concedes the corner now and Wolves are finishing the half strongly.
45'

43'
This is a brilliant match. There looks a lot more goals in this one.

We haven't seen a replay because of the seriousness of the injury.
12'
Nuno Espirito Santo looks on the verge of tears on the touchline.
11'
Fabio Silva is already on the pitch to replace Jimenez and David Luiz has got a terrible cut. It will be difficult for him to continue as well. The players are passing the ball amongst themselves as it has been seven minutes now.
