Wolves 0-2 Arsenal – 3 talking points as Gunners get back on the winners list

Arsenal secured a 2-0 win over Wolves to put the pressure back on Manchester City and Liverpool in the title race.

A response was needed from Mikel Arteta’s side after back-to-back defeats, and they got it against Wolves.

Leandro Trossard got things going just before half-time when the ball fell kindly to him after Gabriel Jesus tried to fight his way out of trouble. Trossard’s first shot hit the upright to give the Gunners the lead.

It was a tense and nervous second half, with Arsenal holding a slim lead before Martin Odegaard doubled the lead in stoppage time to grab a crucial three points and get the Gunners back on the winners’ table.

The game offered many talking points; there they are.

A win is a win

It won’t win any prizes for aesthetics, but three points is three points. At this stage of the season, getting wins in any form is crucial for Arsenal.

The performance will not live long in the memory, but Arteta could care less whether the job is done. With the title race so close, it doesn’t matter how you do it, as long as you do it.

And Arteta’s side did just that, putting pressure on City and Liverpool to secure positive results.
