Arsenal defeated Wolves by a slim margin

Arsenal held on for a 1-0 win at Wolves, moving them up to fifth place thanks to Gabriel’s first-half goal.

Arsenal’s 1-0 win over Wolves gave the Gunners the upper hand in the race for the top four. The red card shown to Gabriel Martinelli midway through the second half sparked heavy pressure from the home team, but Mikel Arteta’s team held on for the three points.

Wolves thought they had equalised when Xhaka put the ball into his own net, but Jimenez had interfered from an offside position. Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta was pleased with his team’s performance on Thursday.

The game was turned upside down when Gabriel Martinelli received two yellow cards in the same action. The final 20 minutes were agonising, with Arsenal putting all hands on the pumps as the Wolves onslaught began. The Gunners, however, held on for a crucial three points with everything they had.
