ARSENAL VS WOLVES A very good evening to you all and welcome to the last of the week's midweek match-ups as Arsenal take on Wolves at the Emirates Stadium. Wolves are actually just two points behind the Gunners having played a game more, and could leapfrog their opponents - as well as West Ham - into a remarkable fifth place today. Arsenal, however, are chasing Champions League football and three points would send them withing a point of fourth-placed Manchester United with two games in hand. So, basically, a win would do nicely for both. Stick with us for all the build-up, hype and highlights ahead of kick-off at 7.45.

End of 2nd Half
Arsenal have stolen it at the death. Wolves were so resilient for so long but they've been unlocked in the last minute.
Lacazette the hero!
Saves by Goalkeeper4
GOAL! ARSENAL 2 WOLVES 1 (Lacazette 90+6')
IN THE LAST MINUTE!
Lacazette has won it!!!!!! It's pinball football in the box but Lacazette finds space on the angle and hammers it past Sa.
Delirium in the Emirates!
TIERNEY OFF, TAVARES ON
A final change for the Gunners now.
SIX MINUTES STOPPAGE TIME
PODENCE OFF, DENDONCKER ON
Final change for Wolves.
A stonecold case of dissent from the Mexican.
Not sure what is happening here but the ref is having a word with Lage now.
CAN THEY HOLD ON?
That's so close to a second for Wolves from Neto.
The Portugues sweeps an effort toward goal but Gabriel is there to get the slightest of touches to knock it wide.
A goal made on the bench. Credit to Arteta for his changes.
GOAL! ARSENAL 1 WOLVES 1 (Pepe, 82')
Ignore what I just said! Odegaard finds Nketiah over the top with a brilliant ball and he squares for Pepe.
It's then magic from the Ivorian who turns on a sixpence before lashing past Sa.
INTO THE FINAL TEN
Still, Arsenal just cannot get past this Wolves defence.
They've not even come close!
CEDRIC OFF, NKETIAH ON
An attacking change from Arteta as he brings on forward Nketiah for the right-back Cedric.
ROLL THAT DICE!
HWANG OFF, NETO ON
Wolves' goalscorer is off.
SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS
An Arsenal shot finally makes it through the mist! It's Cedric! It's wide!
Arsenal fans groan now as Lacazette has Saka on the overlap, it's an easy pass to play the winger in on goal but he well overhits it.
PEPE ON, MARTINELLI OFF
Arsenal's record signing is on. Can he grab an equaliser?
Mikel Arteta's men are certainly biding their time here. But Wolves are so well organised, so compact that they have little choice.
Lacazette has had a few good runs but the best chance of the half is still Hwang's near miss.
20 minutes to go.
LACAZETTE BATTERS THE WALL
The Frenchman pings his free-kick off the wall.
FREE KICK ARSENAL
Lacazette is brought down outside the box...
JONNY ON, SEMEDO OFF
He can't continue, so Jonny takes his place.
Looks like Semedo's night is over. He's down with a few medical stuff on the pitch getting a lot of attention...too much attention according to many Arsenal fans and players.
He looks fine but could be off.
