Wolves will be furious about how they let this game slip from their hands and ended up without anything.

Wolves manager Bruno Lage’s starting XI set to take on the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium.
Gunners boss Mikel Arteta has named Brazilian forward Gabriel Martinelli in the line-up following his return from suspension, Martin Odegaard and Thomas Partey are in midfield while Frenchman Alexander Lacazette will spearhead the attack line.
Both sides are in the running to clinch a spot in the UEFA Champions League for next season and will surely be gunning for the three points on offer tonight, as that would put either of them closer to challenging Manchester United who currently occupy the final UCL spot on the log.
