There are jeers at the final whistle from the home support, but Arsenal are fortunate to even share the spoils today. Wolves missed a number of golden opportunities and ought to have won the game.
Arsenal are now unbeaten in 10 matches.
OFF THE WOODWORK! You won't believe this - Wolves have been denied by the crossbar in the dying moments! It's brilliant from Traore on the counter once again, he pulls it back to Gibbs-White who curls a brilliant first-time effort at goal... and it smashes off the woodwork before bouncing to safety.
WOLVES CHANCE! Mkhitaryan to the rescue at one end, Leno saves the day for Arsenal at the other! Traore leaves Holding for dead with his rapid pace, checks inside but sees his shot brilliantly blocked by the Arsenal shot-stopper.
There will be FIVE minutes of added time to play!
Doherty requires treatment for a head injury.
A goalmouth scramble inside the Arsenal penalty box! It drops to Boly but he has the ball taken off his feet at the crucial moment.
- GoalHenrikh MkhitaryanArsenal
GOAAAALLLLL! Arsenal 1-1 Wolves
Mkhitaryan to the rescue! Arsenal play a short corner to the substitute, he fizzes in a lovely cross, it misses everyone and ends up in the net! It is one of those that are an absolute nightmare to defend against.
- OffRaúl JiménezWolverhampton Wanderers
- OnMorgan Gibbs-WhiteWolverhampton Wanderers
WOLVES SUB: Morgan Gibbs-White replaces Jimenez for the last five minutes.
FINE SAVE! Traore breaks and picks out Jimenez on the right with a delightful pass. He drills an inch-perfect low cross to Jota at the far post, but his shot is brilliantly blocked by Leno! That would have been a fine counter-attacking goal.
Arsenal continue to probe and yet there is still no way through. With back-to-back fixtures with Tottenham and Manchester United looming, this could be a damaging defeat for the Gunners.
Wolves retreating deeper and deeper, inviting pressure. There are 10 minutes to play and you get the feeling there may well be another sting in the tail in this contest.
- Yellow cardHéctor BellerínArsenal
Arsenal are piling on the pressure now - and about time! Xhaka floats in a corner delivery, which Wolves do well to clear. Here comes Traore on the break... nope, he's brought down by Bellerin who goes into the book for a cynical challenge. 'Taking one for the team' they call that.
- OffSead KolašinacArsenal
- OnHenrikh MkhitaryanArsenal
DOUBLE ARSENAL SUB: Mkhitaryan and Aaron Ramsey come on for Ozil and Kolasinac. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
- OffHélder CostaWolverhampton Wanderers
- OnAdama TraoréWolverhampton Wanderers
WOLVES SUB: Costa fouls Xhaka and earns himself a yellow card. Looks like he has hurt himself, too. He is replaced by the fastest player on earth Adama Traore for the last 15 minutes.
OFF THE POST! Oh my, how has Aubameyang missed? Much better build-up play from the hosts as the ball is worked wide to Bellerin. He drills a low cross into the path of Aubameyang who rifles a shot straight at the post from around eight-yards out!
- Yellow cardMatt DohertyWolverhampton Wanderers
Doherty clatters into Xhaka and receives a caution from the referee.
JUST OVER! Arsenal's best passage of play this evening. Xhaka gets behind the defence, pulls it back to the unmarked Bellerin who blasts it over. He should have at least tested the goalkeeper. But that was Arsenal's first genuine chance.
- Yellow cardMesut ÖzilArsenal
Frustration is beginning to build at the Emirates and Ozil goes into the book for throwing the ball away.
Lots of possession for Arsenal, but it's mostly sideways. Emery must look to his bench sooner rather than later to inject some urgency into his side's attack.
Costa always looks like he can make something happen and he gives Guendouzi the slip and delivers a low cross, but Mustafi is there to clear.
- OffIvan CavaleiroWolverhampton Wanderers
- OnDiogo JotaWolverhampton Wanderers
WOLVES SUB: Diogo Jota replaces the goalscorer Cavaleiro
SAVE! Oh here, Arsenal finally force Rui Patricio into action! A corner delivery finds its way to Torreira who goes for goal, 25 yards out. There is plenty of dip and swerve in his shot and the Wolves no 1 does well to tip it over the bar.
It's been too comfortable for Wolves: Arsenal have yet to register a shot on target!
Arsenal continue to enjoy long spells of possession but they haven't asked enough questions of the visitors. Emery's side have around half-an-hour to turn this game on its head.
Wolves win a free-kick in a dangerous crossing position on the right. Neves arches in a delicious cross to the far post, but Jimenez mis-timed his run and is flagged offside.
OVER! The corner delivery is only partially cleared by Wolves. It falls to Torreira who tries his luck from 30 yards - and why not - but he can't keep his effort down.
Another sloppy passage of play from Wolves sees them concede possession in midfield - again. They are inviting needless pressure. Arsenal win a corner, and suddenly the home supporters have found their voice once more.
Costa has given the ball away very cheaply twice in a matter of moments. Santo is waving his arms frantically at the side-lines, he isn't happy with what he has seen from the visitors since the restart.
WOLVES PENALTY SHOUT! Jimenez and Holding battle for a long ball over the top. It takes an awkward bounce inside the box and the Wolves forward goes to ground. There is nothing doing, though. Replays show there was minimal contact from Holding.
Guendouzi has been brought on to inject some energy and urgency into Arsenal's play. And he receives the ball on the flank, drops the shoulder and delivers a cross, but it's sent into the arms of a grateful Rui Patricio.
- 2nd Half
Wolves get the second-period underway.
Emery made a much-needed change at the break, with Iwobi making way for Matteo Guendouzi.
- End of 1st Half
Wolves hold a deserved one-goal lead at the Emirates at the break. Emery's 15-game unbeaten streak is at risk unless Arsenal improve in the second-half.
There will be one minute of additional time to play at the end of what has been a difficult first-half for Arsenal.
Costa has the acceleration to get past Holding but his cross is straight into the arms of Leno.
A diagonal ball releases Bellerin down the flank but Arsenal's frustrations grow as the full-back sends his cross out for a goal-kick.
It's all hands to the pump for Wolves who are operating with 10 men behind the ball. Arsenal simply aren't moving it quickly enough to work any openings.
SHOT! More calamitous defending from the hosts - Kolasinac makes a mess of a clearance and the ball sits up nicely for Jimenez who slices a first-time volley wide.
Wolves are knocking the ball confidently around in midfield, trying to slow the tempo of the game and prevent the Gunners from gaining any momentum.
Arsenal fans, close your eyes...
And so with 30 minutes on the clock, Wolves lead. And they deserve to. Arsenal have been sloppy in possession, Wolves have been threatening on the counter. It's an entertaining game, but Emery won't be enjoying it.
DESPERATE DEFENDING! Cavaleiro runs at the retreating Arsenal back-line, spreading the ball wide to Moutinho on the right. The Portuguese's cross is inviting but Holding is in the right place to clear with a diving header - Costa was waiting to pounce behind him.
SAVE! Leno has to be alert to push away Costa's well-struck effort from the edge of the box. Wolves are looking really threatening on the break.
CHANCE! And now Wolves spring a rapid counter-attack. Costa leads the charge, is allowed to check inside and shoot, forcing Leno into a good save. The Arsenal goalkeeper then gathers himself quickly to smother the loose ball before Jimenez can pounce.
SHOTS! Lacazette receives the ball in space at the back post and tries to shoot from a tight angle, but Coady is there to make the block. And then Iwobi sees his effort from the edge of the box charged down. Wolves are defending for their lives.
Wolves are full of confidence now, but Neves will have angered his team mates with his latest strike. He attempts his luck from 30 yards, it's never going close and Leno can watch it harmlessly float it into the stands.
Here comes Arsenal, desperate to find an immediate leveller. Ozil picks up the ball on the left flank, he has options in the middle but puts too much zip on his cross.
It has been a desperately poor start by the Gunners and now they find themselves a goal down.
- GoalIvan CavaleiroWolverhampton Wanderers
GOAL! Arsenal 0-1 Wolves
What is Xhaka doing? He dummies a pass in midfield, Cavaleiro steals in, eats up some ground in the centre and plays a neat one-two with Jimenez before coolly slotting home the opener.
Wolves on the attack. Jonny searches for the run of Jimenez but it's slightly over-cooked.
NO PENALTY! With beautiful close control Iwobi drives forward with pace, bursting into the Wolves box with intent. However, in comes Bennett who shoulders the Arsenal forward to the ground, prompting calls for a penalty from the home side. The referee Stuart Attwell is well placed and signals play on.
Arsenal can close the gap on fourth-placed and arch-rivals Spurs to a single point with a victory this afternoon, but it has been a low-key start by the hosts.
The Gunners are unbeaten in 19 games against Wolves - can they continue that impressive run?
- 1st Half
KICK-OFF! Arsenal get the game underway.
A poppy wreath is laid down in the middle of the pitch and now it's time for a minute's silence.
Meanwhile, having made a bright start to their Premier League campaign, new boys Wolves have suffered three consecutive defeats.
Espirito Santo: "We're not in the best moment but we have to react to it.
"We reacted well from the bad performance against Watford, we didn't achieve the result against Brighton or Tottenham but we performed well.
"We don't think about the result first - no matter what, it's perform well, do your tasks and try to win."
Arsenal are hoping to extend their run of unbeaten games to 16 this afternoon.
Unai Emery: "Against Liverpool I think we had more in the 90 minutes of the game. Our idea is to repeat matches with this pace over 90 minutes.
"It is about the progress in the team. The progress is about continuing to create confidence and creating also tactically different ways to improve."
Nuno Espiritio Santo doesn't like changes and therefore it is no surprise that Wolves are unchanged from the same side that lost 3-2 at home against Tottenham last weekend.
ONE CHANGE FOR GUNNERS
Alex Iwobi comes in for Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and that is the only change from the starting XI held by Liverpool last weekend.
Meanwhile, there is a place for 19-year-old Edward Nketiah on the bench.
