    Arsenal home form a worry as Jimenez and Luiz clash shows concussion subs can’t come soon enough

    It is perhaps just as well there weren’t any fans in Emirates Stadium to see this, as Arsenal slumped to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Wolves. This was another painful night for Mikel Arteta and the loss now means the Gunners have their lowest ever points tally after 10 Premier League games. It is a damning statistic and one that underlines how poor Arsenal’s start to the season has been.

    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta ‘never worries’ about losing his job: ‘I know one day I will be sacked or leave’

    Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta says his only concern is getting the best out of his players - and not whether he is under pressure to keep his job. The Gunners excelled under Arteta last season, winning the FA Cup, but they have made a stuttering start to the current campaign. Sunday’s 2-1 home defeat to Wolves means they have now lost five of their opening 10 Premier League games and their points tally of 13 is their worst since the competition was created in 1992.

    David Moyes backs Aaron Cresswell to force his way into England reckoning after West Ham resurgence

    David Moyes has backed Aaron Cresswell to force his way into Gareth Southgate's thoughts when the England manager comes to pick his next squad. The West Ham defender has excelled since moving from left-back to one of the back-three in east London, putting in a string of fine performances on the defensive side while still contributing going forward. While Southgate - who has given Cresswell all three of his previous Three Lions caps - has a number of options at the back, especially in the back-three where the 30-year-old looks most comfortable, Moyes is confident his man still has a chance.

    Celtic players targeted with missiles by own fans as protests call for Neil Lennon to be sacked

    Celtic say they will launch an investigation after fans protesting outside Parkhead aimed missiles at their own players while calling for manager Neil Lennon to be sacked. Hundreds of fans gathered outside the club’s ground following Sunday’s 2-0 Betfred Cup defeat to Ross County, the latest poor result in a run that has seen Celtic win just two of their last ten matches. Supporters called for the departure of Neil Lennon and players also came in for abuse from some fans as they left in convoy in their vehicles amid a heavy police presence.

    Tottenham draw at Chelsea another sign of their growing maturity under Jose Mourinho

    Tottenham returned to the top of the table with a hard-fought goalless draw against Chelsea but Jose Mourinho's side were second best on his return to Stamford Bridge. The result was nonetheless another sign of Tottenham's growing maturity and defensive nous under Mourinho, as they held firm against Frank Lampard's expensively-assembled Chelsea attack. The visitors barely had a chance of note in the second half as they sat back and settled for a point but the performance should, on balance, advance Tottenham's status as dark horse for the Premier League crown as they demonstrated staying power in the title race.

    Arsenal 1-2 Wolves: Daniel Podence condemns Gunners to third straight home Premier League defeat

    Arsenal slipped to a third straight home league defeat as they were beaten 2-1 by Wolves in a game marred by a serious head injury to striker Raul Jimenez. Daniel Podence scored what proved to be the winner with a cool finish after Gabriel’s thumping header had cancelled out Pedro Neto’s opener. The game was delayed by ten minutes early on as Jimenez received treatment after a sickening clash of heads with Arsenal defender David Luiz and the Mexican was taken straight to hospital after being stretchered off.
