Arsenal's recent struggles continued on Sunday evening as they fell to a 2-1 home defeat to Wolves at the Emirates Stadium.

Pedro Neto and Daniel Podence did the damage by scoring either side of Gabriel's equaliser as Arsenal fell to a third straight home defeat.

So who were the best and worst performers on both sides?


Pedro Neto: 7.6

Pedro Neto has been enjoying a fine start to the season and his goal against Arsenal means he already has three Premier League goals - the same number as the whole of last campaign.

He opened the scoring on Sunday evening by reacting quickest to the loose ball after Leander Dendoncker had headed against the crossbar.

He also had an impressive six crosses, four dribbles, four touches in the box and two shots on goal as he took the game to the home side.


David Luiz: 5.3

Arsenal have now lost four of the five Premier League games that the Brazilian has started this season and he endured another difficult evening against Wolves.

He failed to win a single tackle, aerial challenge or duel while he was on the pitch and was at fault for Wolves' second goal when he was oblivious to Daniel Podence nipping in to score.

To make matters worse he was involved in an ugly heading accident that forced Raul Jimenez off the pitch and contributed to his own substitution at half time. He really should have exited the field after the incident, as he clearly wasn't fit to play on.


Daniel Podence: 7.6

The pint-sized Portuguese star caused havoc alongside his compatriot Pedro Neto on the wing.

He darted into the box to finish clinically and win the game for Wolves but he was a thorn in Arsenal's side throughout the match. The 25-year-old had a game-high four dribbles, as well as four touches in the box and two shots. He won seven of his nine duels.
