Arsenal loanee Emiliano Martinez will be 'disappointed' with the goals he conceded against QPR, according to Wolves boss Kenny Jackett.

The hosts appeared to be in command at Molineux thanks to goals from former Arsenal starlet Benik Afobe and Kevin McDonald in the first 25 minutes. However, Charlie Austin pulled one back before the interval before a Matty Phillips double meant the points came back to west London with the Hoops.

Jackett was asked about the performance of Martinez post-match, and whether he would have been disappointed with the goals he conceded against Chris Ramsey's side. The response was clear.

“I am sure he will look at them again and think that will be the case,” said Jackett, according to the Wolves website.

“He made some good saves and there was a header right at the start of the second-half when Onouha got in at the far post.

“He will be disappointed, certainly with the third goal, and the second goal seemed to trickle in after going through two sets of legs.”

Social media reaction 

The response from Wolves fans on Twitter was pretty damning as well, with one suggesting the Gunners' young stopper made more mistakes than old first choice Carl Ikeme did in two years.

The reaction on social media is of course often over the top, but there is clearly a growing number of supporters who are unhappy that Martinez is getting the nod ahead of Ikeme - who has been with the club since joining their academy.

Arsenal signed Martinez from Independiente back in 2010, with the 22-year-old making his Premier League debut last season amidst a keeper injury crisis at the Emirates Stadium.

Manager Arsene Wenger has sent him away from the Gunners on loan on a number of occasions, with Oxford, Sheffield Wednesday and Rotherham all benefiting from his services in the past.

Jackett brought him to Wolves on a season-long loan last week, but his place in the line-up may now be under threat ahead of the Championship clash against Cardiff on Saturday.
