’s side dominated the opening 45 minutes with goals from and Martin Odegaard giving them a deserved lead at the Emirates Stadium.

But the Gunners eased off in the second half and to score for Wolves in the 86th minute, which set up a tense finish.

Arsenal were able to hold out for the victory, which has put them four points clear at the top of the Premier League, but Wright believes Arsenal’s slack second half is an area of concern.

‘A bit nervy at the end,’ Wright told Productions.

‘You’d expect that from Wolves, I think getting down to that stage of the game they had to throw some caution to the wind and to be fair to them they put us under a bit of pressure and got the goal.

‘Again, it comes down to concentration, I think has to put his foot through that. But I thought we did enough to win the game.

‘Second half it’s fair to say it was a bit backs to the wall, the work was done in the first half.

‘It’s a little bit worrying to see the drop off in the second half, I don’t know if it’s nerves or what it could’ve been but I think Wolves got a little bit more initiative about them, tried to go at us, put us under pressure and you saw they put us under pressure in the box, Zinchenko doesn’t quite clear his lines, that was enough to give us a little bit of a problem towards the end of the game.

‘I think the worry was seeing Arsenal dropping deeper and deeper. I don’t know if it’s got anything to do with the substitutions, Saka and Odegaard going off, but we did feel like we dropped a bit deeper, lost a little bit of control, that’s when Wolves pushed up on us and forced the mistake.’
