Arsenal manager Unai Emery is upbeat about the chances of a top-four finish at the end of the current Premier League season.

The Gunners boss is not giving up a place in the top four of the Premier League despite a second successive league defeat at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday night.

During his post-match press conference after the game, Unai Emery preferred to focus on the collective rather than pinning the blame for the goals conceded against Wolves on individuals.

Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno was at fault for two of the goals as Wolves beat Arsenal for the first time in 40 years via a 3-1 win at the Molineux.

The Gunners have now lost seven games away from home in the Premier League this season as their wretched form on the road is showing no signs of ending.

Ruben Neves gave Wolves the lead in the 29th minute from a freekick before Matt Doherty added a second goal for the Midlands club.

Diogo wrapped up a 3-0 scoreline for the home side at the halftime interval.

Arsenal conceded those three goals within the space of 19 first-half minutes.

Gunners defender Sokratis Papasthathopoulos pulled one back in the last ten minutes but it was too late to rescue Arsenal from the claws of defeat.
