Arsenal had sent two players off when they threw away a lead and lost to Wolves – who won for the first time in nine Premier League games

The Gunners, who had previously struck the wood twice and had not allowed a goal, led the way when Nicolas Pepe fended off two challenges from the wolves and rolled a good finish into the net

But Arsenal were reduced to 10 when defender David Luiz defeated Willian Jose Ruben Neves equalized the penalty in the first half of the injury time

Joao Moutinho scored with a brilliant hit from 30 meters to give the hosts the lead shortly after the restart

However, the Gunners were then reduced to nine when goalkeeper Bernd Leno handled the ball outside of his penalty area after attempting to refuse Adama Traore

This was the Wolves’ first league win since a 2-1 win at Molineux against Chelsea on Jan. December, although they had since also won two FA Cup games – against Crystal Palace and Chorley of the National League North

Wolves climb to 13th place but drop to 14th place if Crystal Palace avoid losing at Newcastle United in a late game on Tuesday

Arsenal, who would have finished sixth if they won, remain in tenth place, eight points behind fourth-placed Leicester City in the last qualifying for the Champions League

The turning point came in the first half of injury when Arsenal led 1-0 and dominated

Daniel Podence passed the ball to Jose and the Brazilian had his heel cut off from behind on his home debut by compatriot Luiz

Referee Craig Pawson ruled Luiz had made no attempt to play the ball and sent the center-back off it was Luiz’s third red card for Arsenal after winning the 2-2 draw at Chelsea in January 2020 and had also been sacked in the 3-0 defeat by Manchester City in June

Wolves, whose main threat was limited to set pieces and ranged combat, made up for Neves’ penalty kick, which he shot into the top corner

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta made a defensive substitution during the break when center-back Gabriel came on for striker Alexandre Lacazette In the second half, however, it took the hosts just four minutes to score Moutinho’s brilliant goal

The guests brought Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the 61 Minute for striker Pepe to save something from the game

But Leno scored in the 72 A shocking decision in the 30th minute as he sprinted out of his box and tried to catch the ball before the fast-paced Traore, but the goalkeeper misjudged the rebound, handled the ball and was dismissed

With Mat Ryan, who signed for Brighton last month, injured third-choice goalkeeper Runar Runarsson made his Premier League debut

The 25-year-old Icelandic international signed for £ 18m from Dijon in September so it was good to refuse Pedro Neto and replace Vitinha when the Wolves were about to end the game

With that, Arsenal played mostly with two banks of four in defense and midfield, and there were long periods of no one playing up front before they regained possession

Aubameyang and Hector Bellerin had blocked shots from the edge of the box, but the Gunners couldn’t force an unlikely equalizer

When these two teams met on 29 November at the Emirates Stadium, the Wolves won 2-1 and Arteta was faced with the question of whether he would do his job with the Gunners on the 14th Would lose space

Arsenal went unbeaten in seven Premier League games on Tuesday and the Spaniard will surely be disappointed that he did not extend that sequence because he could have led the game beyond the Wolves in the first half

The Gunners almost got ahead in the first 40 seconds when Saka hit the post after a nice pass from the excellent Thomas Partey

Saka had then saved an attempt by Rui Patricio before the English midfielder got the ball into the net, but the video assistant referee ruled that out as Lacazette was offside in the build-up

Pepe was turned down when Patricio put his goal on the crossbar superbly, but the Gunners ‘record-breaking signing came on the scorers’ list when he superbly spiked two Wolves defenders with nutmeg before rolling the ball into the far corner

At that point, it looked like Arsenal would run away with the game, but the penalty and first red card at half changed everything and the Gunners couldn’t create any real opportunities in the second half

This was the first of three home games in a row for Wolves, who face Leicester in the Premier League on Sunday (14:00 GMT) and will play on Thursday 11th February (17), playing Southampton in the fifth round of the FA Cup: 30)

Arsenal are back in the West Midlands for their next game when they face Aston Villa in the league on Saturday (12:30 pm)
