Arsenal recovers from a challenging week to focus on their title challenge after defeating Wolves.    

After a trying week, Arsenal triumphed 2-0 over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux to take the lead in the Premier League standings and maintain a club record sixth straight away league clean sheet.
The visitors got off to a fast start, hoping to bounce back from their first league loss of the year before being eliminated from Europe. Kai Havertz hooked the ball goalward in the first few seconds, but Jose Sa easily stopped it.
Bukayo Saka also headed a header that tested the goalkeeper early on, and Gabriel Jesus missed a close range chance.

Declan Rice had a couple of attempts from the outside of the box, but Wolves gained momentum in the middle of the first half when Joao Gomes beat Jakub Kiwior and fired toward goal, only for David Raya to brilliantly palm the ball onto the post.
Leandro Trossard gave Arsenal the lead and completed his best scoring season in the league with a stunning slice of his ninth league goal into the top corner following Jesus’ layoff. However, the game appeared to be tied at the break.
Havertz attempted a volley early in the second half, but Sa held firm, and Ben White missed a long-range shot. The Gunners were now bursting with confidence.

For the first twenty-five minutes after the restart, Wolves were defending their lead, but substitute Mario Lemina demonstrated the potency of a 1-0 lead when he cut inside Gabriel Magalhaes and Raya saved his shot.
In order to try and preserve their slim advantage, Mikel Arteta’s team chose to retreat and withstand Wolves’ pressure in the closing minutes of the game.

The Gunners had opportunities of their own to end the match, and Martin Odegaard took advantage of them, slotting home at the near post to give Arsenal their sixth straight head-to-head victory.

The hosts, on the other hand, have lost their last five games and are currently in 11th place with little left to play for this season according to Gary O’Neil’s squad.
