Arsenal won with Wolverhampton 2: 0 (0: 0). Arsenal benefited from the serious Manchester City incident and cemented its position in the Premier League table.
Manchester City unexpectedly lost 1-2 to Brentford on Saturday afternoon. Thus, Arsenal had the chance to cement their place at the top of the Premier League. The condition of the Londoners was the defeat of Wolverhampton.
Although the “Wolves” are currently in a bad situation, the first minutes of the match did not go as expected by Arteta’s players. Even when Gabriel Jesus hit the net, the goal was disallowed for offside.
Moreover, the hosts were able to intimidate in the attack. An example is Goncalo Guedes’ action from the 20th minute – the Portuguese then carried the ball over the bar.
In the first half, Arsenal managed to respond with another measure, which is also ineffective. The aforementioned Brazilian striker had already broken the bar, and the fans were coming down for a break in mood.
The situation in favor of the visitors began to change forever in the second half. Then it was Fabio Vieira who played well for Martin Odegaard. The Norwegian had nothing left but to hit the goal.
In the 75th minute, Arsenal came close to increasing the lead, but Jose Sa entered well. However, the Portuguese was helpless seconds later when Martin Odegaard grabbed the ball again.
At the end of the “wolves” they had the opportunity to reduce the scale of the defeat. But Aaron Ramsdale withstood the nerve test and stopped Daniel Bowdens. As a result, Arsenal won 2-0 (0-0) and are now five points ahead of second-placed Manchester City.
