Henrikh Mkhitaryan came from the bench to save Arsenal as they prolonged their unbeaten run against the Wolves side, which deserved victory.
Visitors whose 29-year-old wait for the winners of the Gunners will continue to see three losses due to the start of Ivan Cavaleiro's play.
But Unai Emery's side has shown a desire for her back and now has won nine points from losing her Premier League position this season when Mkhitaryan cross-cum-shot avoided everyone to get Arsenal a 1-1 draw only four minutes from full time.
Another slow start could easily become dear guests – with Cardiff the only other party on the upper flight that will stay halfway through this season.
The Wolves played their part and felt they would have to put their own winning Arsenal goal Bernd Len to make a number of key investigations from the visitors who wiped the wood in the final stages of Morgan Gibbs-White.
It was Wolves who took the lead in less than 15 minutes when Granit Xhaka accepted possession in the center field.
International Switzerland allowed the ball in front of him, but Cavaleiro assembled it, ran ahead and swapped his passes with Rauel Jimenez before heading home.
Arsenal seemed to react and had a number of strikes blocked by the Wolves defense, most notably Captain Conor Coady retained Alexandre Lacazette on the goalie.
Visitors took an electric shock to the counterattack, and Leno was well rescued by Helder Costa before sadly settling at Jimenez's feet.
The German was the busiest goalie in the opening half hour, prompting Costa's further efforts, while Nuno Espirito Santo's side continues to push Arsenal's defense.
Emery takes Matteo Guendouzi into the halftime of Alex Iwobi and changes the form in an attempt to get back into the game.
Lucas Torreira forced Rui Patricia into his first meaningful hour post with Hector Bellerin, who was brightened when he was well positioned when the host grinned.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang found himself in inches of centimeters when his turnout shot out of the post and Emery turned to Aaron Ramsey and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in 15 minutes.
When Arsenal tossed people forward, Wolves had caught them in the break, and Leno had to be careful to turn Diogo Jot's shot.
Ramsey refused Patricio in a point-blank range, but Arsenal would settle from the resulting corner – played short, Mkhitaryan seemed to drift the cross to the rear pole but instead sailed the ball to the far corner of Patricia net.
Emery and his benches were angry because referee Stuart Attwell added five minutes of break, but Wolves seemed to be likely to win at death.
Adam Traor's tempo was enough to win visitors with two chances to win. He first signed the club record for another rescue before Len before later tossing his colleague Gibbs-White, whose efforts crashed from the bottom of the bar and bounced off.
