In Summary

  • Arsenal’s third successive league win moved them to within three points of sixth-placed Wolves whose eight-match unbeaten league run came to an end in disappointing fashion
  • Wolves are three points behind Manchester United in fourth spot and two behind Chelsea who play later

Arsenal dented Wolverhampton Wanderers’ hopes of a top-four finish as Bukayo Saka’s first Premier League goal helped them to an impressive 2-0 away victory on Saturday.

The 18-year-old Saka’s controlled finish on the turn just before the end of a low-key first half put Arsenal ahead.

Adama Traore fired over as in-form Wolves struggled to find their usual attacking potency. Alexandre Lacazette came off the bench late on to secure the points for Mikel Arteta’s side with a clinical angled finish.

Arsenal’s third successive league win moved them to within three points of sixth-placed Wolves whose eight-match unbeaten league run came to an end in disappointing fashion.

Wolves are three points behind Manchester United in fourth spot and two behind Chelsea who play later.
