Arsenal beat Wolves to go back top

2024/04/20 21:37

Arsenal return to winning ways to reclaim the top spot in the Premier League with a 2-0 win against Wolves at Molineux.

The Gunners dominated the early exchanges, with Kai Havertz and Declan Rice testing the Wolves defence with shots, but the home side managed to weather the storm.

Wolves had their own moments, including a close call when Joao Gomes' strike required a fingertip save from David Raya to tip it onto the bar.

Just as the hosts seemed to be gaining momentum towards the end of the first half, the visitors scored. 

A loose ball fell to Leandro Trossard, whose off-balance shot found the back of the net off the inside of the post in a stroke of luck.

In the second half, Havertz continued to threaten, but the north London side struggled to capitalise on their dominance in the final third.

Wolves pushed for an equaliser as the game progressed, introducing more experienced players off the bench to put pressure on Arsenal's defence.

Mikel Arteta made defensive subs, bringing on Thomas Partey to shore up the midfield and preserve Arsenal's lead in the final minutes.

In stoppage time, Martin Odegaard sealed the victory for Arsenal with a composed finish from a tight angle, completing a perfect response to their midweek disappointment.

With this result, Mikel Arteta's side will be sitting one point clear of Man City and three points better off than Liverpool, but having played a game more.

As a die-hard Arsenal fan, I couldn't be happier with our win against Wolves! We dominated the game and deserved the three points. Our attack was on fire with Havertz and Rice causing trouble for the Wolves defence. And that lucky goal from Trossard was just the cherry on top. Let's keep this winning streak going and bring the Premier League title back to the Emirates!

As an Arsenal fan, I have to say, I was a bit nervous going into this game against Wolves. They have been a tough team to beat in recent seasons, and we have struggled against them in the past. But I have to say, the team showed great anticipation and determination on the pitch today. Our players were hungry for the win and it showed in their performance. Even when Wolves had their moments, we stayed focused and ultimately came out with a clean sheet and a 2-

As an Arsenal fan, it's a huge relief to see us bounce back and reclaim the top spot in the Premier League. Although Wolves put up a good fight, we showed our dominance and secured the win. Disappointing to not see more goals, but a win is a win.

As a fan of Arsenal, I am ecstatic to see our team reclaim the top spot in the Premier League with this 2-0 win against Wolves! We dominated the early exchanges and although Wolves had their moments, our defense was strong. Havertz's continued threat in the second half was promising, but we could have capitalized more on our dominance. Nonetheless, a win is a win and we are back on top!

As an Arsenal fan, I'm ecstatic with this win and our return to the top spot in the Premier League! Our domination in the early exchanges was evident and Trossard's goal was a stroke of luck that we needed. However, we need to work on capitalizing on our dominance in the final third. Let's keep this momentum going!
