7.3. Got into some nervy moments early on, but as he settled in he improved. Helped Cedric keep Adama so quiet that Wolves moved him to the other side of the pitch. Continued to defend convincingly, even in the dicey moments at the start of the second half. A huge performance from him to keep a clean sheet in this match.. CB. Arsenal. SHKODRAN MUSTAFI

7.2. Controlled most of the possession early on but, like his teammates, could not figure out what to do with the ball when he had it. A stupid foul just after the half-hour mark that earned him a yellow, which is always such a rough situation for him to be in. Did manage some nice defensive efforts, though. Credit where it’s due.. CB. Arsenal. DAVID LUIZ

6.2. Gets sucked out of his position too easily. That may work at leftback, but it doesn’t work as a centerback. Also continues to struggle to track runs, letting attackers in behind him far too easily. There’s a reason Wolves moved Adama over to Kolasinac’s side. He did not handle it nearly as well as Mustafi and Cedric did. It nearly bit us in the 64th minute. His passing was pretty abysmal too. You could feel his nervousness. Still, he helped keep a clean sheet.. CB. Arsenal. SEAD KOLASINAC
