Arsenal beat Wolves, go four points clear

Arsenal moved four points clear at the top of the Premier League table with a 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday (Dec 2). Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard got their names on the scoresheet early on, with Wolves unable to reduce the deficit before half-time. Despite a late Matheus Cunha goal, Arsenal held on for an important victory. The Gunners have 33 points from 14 games with champions Manchester City, who host Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, on 29 and Liverpool and Aston Villa, also in action on Sunday, on 28.

Arsenal moved four points clear at the top of the Premier League table with victory over Wolves at Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners, 6-0 winners over Lens in midweek, took an early lead when Bukayo Saka got the better of Craig Dawson in the penalty area before firing low into the bottom corner.

It was 2-0 not long afterwards, Martin Odegaard finishing a magnificent team move involving Oleksandr Zinchenko and Gabriel Jesus to double the hosts' advantage.

Gabriel Martinelli struck the outside of the post with a low shot, while Leandro Trossard and Jesus both went close as Arsenal pressed for a third goal that would have put the result beyond doubt.

Wolves improved in the second half and Matheus Cunha tested David Raya's reflexes with a powerful effort at the near post, before curling a superb drive into the top corner to give the visitors hope with five minutes remaining.

Gary O'Neil's side were unable to complete the fightback, however, and Eddie Nketiah fired against the frame of the goal for Arsenal not long after Cunha's strike.
