Arsenal Luiz, Leno sent off as Wolves first win in 9 games

 Arsenal 2 players sent off as lost to Wolves 2-1 - Wanderers first time in nine Premier League games, stats.

The Gunners, who had struck the woodwork twice before and had a goal disallowed, took initiative when Nicolas Pepe kept out two Wolves challenges and curved a perfect finish in the net.

Yet Arsenal was limited to 10 players when Defender David Luiz killed Willian Jose, though Ruben Neves was equal to the ensuing penalty in the first half of the injury.

Joao Moutinho struck a superb shot from 30 yards to bring the hosts ahead shortly after the restart.

Wolves completed their first league double over Arsenal since 1978-79.

Since Arteta's first game in charge of Arsenal on 26 December 2019, the Gunners have been shown nine Premier League red cards, six more than any other side.

Only Sheffield United and West Brom (16 each) have conceded the first goal in more Premier League games this season than Wolves (15).

Arsenal's Pepe has scored three goals in his past four starts in the league, as many as in his previous 16.

Pepe has scored in three consecutive away league matches for the first time since January 2019, when he scored in four in a row on the road for Lille.

Since making his Premier League debut for Arsenal in August 2019, Luiz has picked up more red cards (three) and conceded more penalties (six) than any other player in the competition.

Moutinho scored his first home goal for Wolves (61 games at Molineux) - and all three of his Premier League goals have come from outside the box.

Leno became the second Arsenal goalkeeper to be sent off in the Premier League, after David Seaman in November 1993 against West Ham.

Granit Xhaka made his 200th appearance for the Gunners. Since his debut for the club in August 2016, he has played 46 games more than the next player (Bellerin, 154).
