North London giants Arsenal produced another shocking away performance in the Premier League after they were beaten by Wolverhampton Wanderers in their league clash at the Molineux.

The Gunners had won just six of their previous 16 away games in the Premier League and they needed at least one point against Wolves to regain fourth spot from Chelsea who had gone into the top four with a 2-2 draw at home to Burnley.

Arsenal started the game on the front foot against their hosts but struggled to create chances despite having the larger percentage of the possession early on in the game.

Wolves went on to take the lead through Portuguese international midfielder Ruben Neves from a freekick outside the box after Jonny was brought down by Arsenal defender Nacho Monreal.

Arsenal collapsed after the 26th minute strike from the aforementioned Neves.

Jonny was having an influential game for the hosts after he setup fellow wing back Matt Doherty for the second goal of the game via an header.

Diogo Jota added a third goal for Wolves on the stroke of the halftime interval as the hosts scored three goals in 19 minutes against the Gunners.

Arsenal pulled one back in the second half through a Sokratis Papasthathopoulos header but it was just mere consolation for the Gunners.
