Ian Wright's face was a picture after Paul Ince was raging about Arsenal 2-1 Wolves

Thursday evening was certainly one to savour for Arsenal fans.

The Gunners picked up arguably their biggest win of the 2021/22 season so far against top four rivals Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Arsenal had to come from goal down to achieve victory, a late strike from substitute Nicolas Pepe and a stoppage-time own goal from Jose Sa earning them all three points.

Unsurprisingly, the Emirates was rocking throughout the match and after the referee blew the full-time whistle.

Fans were absolutely ecstatic over the result, as was Ian Wright, who couldn’t contain his happiness while on punditry duty for the game with DAZN.

The Arsenal legend was alongside former Wolves player Paul Ince in the studio, who was far from happy with the outcome of the match.

Ince was adamant that the Gunners didn’t deserve their victory, something Wright disagreed with due to the fact that the visitors “sat back” and “didn’t have a go”.

After Wright made those claims, the presenter of the show stepped in before Ince could fire back and declared that they were going live to a post-match interview with Alexandre Lacazette.

Wright’s face while that was being announced was absolutely priceless, while the man opposite him couldn’t have looked any more miserable.

Ian just couldn’t resist, could he? His beaming smile and head nods towards the camera were almost too much to handle for Ince.

Wright was also critical of the fact that Wolves appeared to be trying to time-waste at every possible opportunity in the latter stages of the match.

At one point, Bruno Lage looked as if he was trying to shave off some seconds by changing the player he wanted to be subbed.

Raul Jimenez’s name was initially called, but it was Daniel Podence who was eventually taken off. The former was actually booked by referee Martin Atkinson for not leaving the pitch.

However, Lage apologised to Arsenal and Mikel Arteta for the incident in his post-match interview, citing a lack of communication as the cause.

“The first thing is to say about that situation in the end, it was bad communication between me and my staff,” the Wolves boss told Amazon Prime Video.

Let’s start easy: who’s this iconic character?

“I changed my mind at the last minute and that’s why we were so confused about that.

“That’s why I apologise to the referee, also to Arteta, about that, because it was not in my mind to come here and to waste time or do these kinds of things, but we move on.”
