0 74

Arsenal bounced back from a disappointing week with a hard-fought 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux, sending them back to the top of the Premier League table.

The Gunners had suffered a setback in the title race with a loss to Aston Villa and then a midweek Champions League exit at the hands of Bayern Munich. However, Mikel Arteta’s side showed grit and determination to earn a vital win.

Leandro Trossard opened the scoring on the stroke of halftime, easing Arsenal’s nerves after a tense first period that saw Wolves threaten to take the lead. The Gunners controlled the second half but lacked a cutting edge until Martin Odegaard’s late strike sealed the victory.
