Arsenal vs Wolves

Sunday’s final Premier League tie pitted Arsenal against Wolves.

The Gunners headed into the match in desperate need of a bounce-back result after a nightmare run of results in the Premier League, which had seen them score just one goal in their last five league outings.

Currently, it is indeed Nuno Santo’s side who are in front at the Emirates.

Pedro Neto fired the visitors into the lead 27 minutes into the tie. Gabriel then levelled things up for Mikel Arteta and co. just moments later.

And this, as showcased by the tweets below, has caused a fair bit of concern online:
