    No time to rest as the Gunners head to Wolverhampton on Wednesday to face the hapless Wolves, who currently sit in last and look destined to be relegated this season. We're likely to see some lineup changes with Djourou slotting in for suspended Koscielny, and the possible reintroduction of Gervinho in place of Benayoun. We could potentially sit Van Persie as well--we'll have to see how confident Wenger is in our chances. Would like to see Ox get some run as well.

    Norwich won yesterday and Chelsea drew. We can move five points clear of fourth with a victory at Wolves.

    Santos, Djourou, and Ramsey in for Gibbs, Koscielny, and Rosicky.

    Still not sold on what Wenger is doing with Ramsey.

    Red card for Bassong, penalty for dragging down Walcott.

    Van Persia casually chips the ball into the net, one-nil to the Arsenal. Beautiful & cheeky goal.

    Crowd rebelling against Wolves interim manager after Davis is taken off. Dunno what this is about.

    Walcott to Van Persie, Van Persie back to Walcott, sweet goal in the corner of the net.

    Wolves are on the ropes.

    2-0 after 13-minutes, Wolves down a man.

    The best start Arsenal could hope for.

    Goal differential could make a difference at the end of the season. Keep them coming, boys.

    Hard to see one of the only black managers (Terry Connor) in the lame duck position. The league needs more diversity in managers.

    Walcott mugged outside the box, no call, big effort from Benayoun to steal the ball back and have a crack at goal.

    Benayoun won't get complacent. Need guys like him on the field in what looks to be an easier game than normal.

    More hard work by Benayoun driving a defender into the sidelines. Effort level high tonight.

    Wolves fans letting Walcott know how they feel about him going down in the box.

    Arsenal fans at the game dancing and singing.

    Arsenal dominating possession.

    Stearman clobbers RVP, no call, Song goes up and has words with him. Good to see.

    RVP & Ben go back and forth, creating a shot for Santos that goes wide.

    The air is out of the game. Not much to look at.

    Walcott's fourth or fifth turnover. Crowd loving his mistakes.

    Yet another turnover from Walcott.

    Arsenal look sleepy.
