Jota gets a standing ovation as he is replaced by Cavaleiro.
If it stays like this Wolves will move up to 7th while Arsenal remain 5th, a point behind Chelsea.
GREAT TACKLE! Nketiah looks to have played in Lacazette but Bennett pulls off a brilliant last-gasp tackle.

Iwobi is replaced by Nketiah in Arsenal's final change of the evening.
CLOSE! Jonny picks out Jimenez who takes a touch before firing a shot wide of the far post. That was a lovely Wolves move.
Arsenal have yet to have a shot on target. It's been feet up and cigars time for Patricio.
The game has become very scrappy so it's stat time. Arsenal have committed more errors directly leading to an opposition goal in the Premier League than any other team this season.
Arsenal have really missed Aubameyang tonight, they have been toothless up front.
Arsenal have switched to a back three, Monreal is now alongside Sokratis and Koscielny as one of three centre-backs.

Guendouzi is on for Torreira, who was lucky to escape a red.

Double change. Kolasinac is on for the quiet Mkhitaryan.
PENALTY SHOUT! Bennett does not see Lacazette come from behind him, their legs tangle but the referee does not give a foul. Bennett is a lucky boy.
Jimenez breaks down the right before firing a cross towards Jota at the back post who is unable to get the ball under control and Arsenal clear.
Torreira is guilty of gifting possession to Wolves in the final third but a last-ditch tackle from Koscielny saves the day. At the other end, Bennett and Coady do well to snuff out the danger.
Arsenal work the ball to the edge of the Wolves penalty area again but there's no end product as Lacazette can only find a Wolves player.
CHANCE! Bright start from the Gunners, the ball falls to Monreal whose drive from distance goes over the bar.

- GoalDiogo JotaWolverhampton Wanderers
GOAAAALL FOR WOLVES!!!!!!! Jota races clear before firing under Leno to make it 3-0, where was the defending?!
There will be 2 added minutes.
- Yellow cardLucas TorreiraArsenal
OUCH! Torreira is booked for a two footed challenge on Neves, some refs may have given a red for that.
Arsenal look rattled. Torreira plays a hospital pass forward to Ozil, who is easily bundled off the ball.
You have to say the Gunners do not have a strong bench to call upon in terms of attacking players: Cech, Elneny, Mustafi, Guendouzi, Kolasinac, Nketiah, Willock.
Questions will be asked of Emery if it stays like this, 7 changes from the side that lost to Palace. United only made 5 changes for tonight's derby from the side that was thumped by Everton 4-0.
Unbelievable Jeff! 2 set pieces, 2 goals for Wolves.
- GoalMatt DohertyWolverhampton Wanderers
GOAL FOR WOLVES!! Moutinho plays a corner short to Jonny who whips in a cross for Doherty who heads the ball beyond Leno who was off his line.
WHAT A CHANCE! The Gunners break, it comes through to Lacazette who fires well wide of goal.

- Yellow cardGranit XhakaArsenal
CLOSE! Jimenez's first touch is excellent but his shot is wild and the ball sails high over the crossbar. Xhaka is then booked for dissent.
Somewhat against the run of play, the home side are in front courtesy of a sumptious set-piece.

GOAL FOR WOLVES! It's a Neves free-kick which goes over the wall, Leno was stranded. The free-kick came from Jota being tripped on the edge of the box by Monreal.
CHANCE! Bennett's long throw is nodded on by the towering Boly for Jimenez who stretches but his shot goes over the bar.
Leno was at full stretch but Moutinho's first-time effort was just wide, lifeline for Arsenal.
SO CLOSE! Doherty is picked out by Dendoncker down the right who cuts inside before laying it off to Moutinho whose curling effort goes agonisingly wide.
Great hustle from Jota, winning the ball in his own half and setting up a Wolves attack.
- Yellow cardMatt DohertyWolverhampton Wanderers
Doherty is booked for pulling back Monreal on the edge of the Wolves box.
From the free-kick, Torreira's stirke is blocked by the wall.
Maitland-Niles feeds Mkhitaryan down the right wing and he fires in an early ball into the area but Lacazette nor Ozil can get on the end of it.
Wolves are having more of the ball now after weathering that early Gunners storm, especially Doherty on the right flank who is up against Monreal.
Jimenez fails to keep in Doherty's throw which sums up the home side's start.
Emery's side have dominated the opening exchanges, Wolves have struggled to get the ball out of their own half.
More good stuff from the Gunners. From a short corner following Iwobi's deflected cross, Lacazette sends in a deep cross but there in no-one there to get on the end of it.
CHANCE! Boly's poor clearance falls to Mkhitaryan on the edge of the area but his rushed strike sails over the bar.
CHANCE! Good start from the visitors. Torreira has space on the edge of the box but he scuffs his effort and its off target.

It's actually Moutinho who takes it but its a poor one and Leno catches it.
