Arsenal reclaimed their position at the summit of the English Premier League with a resolute 2-0 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux, thanks to late strikes from Leandro Trossard and Martin Odegaard.

Following a turbulent week marred by a home defeat to Aston Villa and an exit from the Champions League at the hands of Bayern Munich, Mikel Arteta’s side needed a statement win to regain their footing in the title race. Trossard’s clinical finish just before halftime, a stunning right-footed strike that kissed the post before nestling into the top corner, provided the much-needed breakthrough.

Despite dominating proceedings, Arsenal had to wait until stoppage time in the second half to seal the victory definitively. Odegaard, displaying remarkable composure, found the back of the net from an acute angle on the right, ensuring Arsenal’s ascendancy atop the league standings.

The win not only propelled Arsenal one point clear of second-placed Manchester City but also served as a morale booster after recent setbacks. While City may have a game in hand, Arsenal’s resolve and determination in securing this crucial win should assuage any lingering doubts.

Although Wolves posed occasional threats, notably when Joao Gomes’s effort was denied by Arsenal goalkeeper David Raya’s heroics, they ultimately succumbed to Arsenal’s relentless pressure. Gary O’Neil’s side now find themselves without a victory in their last six outings across all competitions, highlighting the stark contrast in fortunes between the two teams on the day.
