Wolves boos Nuno Espirito Santo told BBC Sport: We needed more urgency in some moments. On and off the ball we were a little but unbalanced and the urgency to chase a result was not there. In the beginning, we were threatening, but the rest of the game we were too passive. This is something we cannot replace [the home fans]. The atmosphere is not here and we miss them.
"All the players need improvement. Sometimes it goes OK when he [Adama Traore] tries something. Today it was not good, but it was important he was there. Now we have to improve from this game and challenge ourselves [against Sheffield United] on Wednesday. What means something is how we want to play, and today we were not able to play well. Credit to Arsenal, they are a good team, but we should do better."
Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta told BBC Sport: "It was a massive win. We had two and a half days to prepare and they had a week. We played two games while they were training.
"They [Wolves] are a really well organised team and it's really tough to come here and win, we needed everybody to play with high attention and commitment. We had good possession and scored two goals. When we had to suffer, the team enjoyed to suffer together, which is massive for us."
