Ivan Cavaleiro's 13th thin strike put Wolves ahead, taking advantage of Granit Xhaka's mistake, leaving Arsenal to face its first loss in every competition since the season began with a mild defeat with City and Chelsea in the Premier League August.
After playing bad in the first half, Arsenal scored the pressure after halftime and should have been equal when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was probably presented near the right cross of Hector Bellerin. Aubameyang did not get the right connection and broke his attempt from the outside of the post.
Mkhitaryan took the final equalizer that left Arsenal in fifth place, eight points rushed by the city's leader and three points out of the top four. His unbeaten run in all races was extended to 16 races that began at the international two-week break.
