This Saturday, Wolverhampton welcomed Arsenal for matchday 33 of the Premier League. At the Molineux Stadium, the home team was surprised by the Gunners, who managed to get a 2-0 victory. The goals were scored by Bukayo Saka and Alexandre Lacazette.
The first half started with the Wolves going to the attack. With just one minute into the match, they were already obligating goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez to make a good save. But soon the visitors began to equalize the plays and goalkeeper Rui Patricio also had to work to avoid a possible goal.
As the match approached the half-time, Arsenal became more and more dangerous in the attacking field, and they managed to break the deadlock at the 43rd minute. After a cross from Kieran Tierney, the ball deflected in Wolverhampton’s defense and was left to Saka, into the middle of the box. The British player hit a half-volley and put the ball into the back of the net.
Losing by one goal and playing at home, the Wolves came back to the second half with a little more energy. And they could have equalized things if Adama didn’t miss the good chance he got in the early minutes.
After that, both teams were fighting for the ball and for spaces, which obligated managers to make some changes to the squad. At the 83rd minute, manager Mikel Arteta brought Lacazette into the game and it soon had an effect. 3 minutes later, the French player received from Joe Willock and hit into the back of the net.
With the 2-0 victory, Arsenal moved up to 7th place, now with 49 points. With that, they are just 3 points behind Wolverhampton, who is the 6th place in the competition. Both teams return to the pitch in the middle of the week for matchday 34. The Gunners will welcome Leicester on Tuesday, while the Wolves will visit Sheffield on Wednesday.
