The English Premier League fixture between Wolverhampton Wanderers was quite the battle, with the two sides playing to their full capacity till the end of the match. Both teams had a lot of chances to score but failure to convert those chances meant that the match would not be producing a lot of goals.
Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette missed one of the biggest chances of the match after he was found with a fine pass, but he could not convert it and it almost cost Arsenal as a result. However, after the match, the French striker took to social media to apologize to the Arsenal fans for failing to convert that chance, admitting that he should be scoring from such opportunities.
Although Lacazette was not able to score a goal of his own, he did setup Gabriel for the first and only goal of the match in the 25th minute. Wolves enjoyed more possession overall especially after Gabriel Martinelli was shown a second yellow card in the 69th minute of the game and was sent his marching orders. Since that time, Arsenal had a lot of job to do as they became more defensive and reduced their attacking threats as well. Their change in tactics did work out for them though as they were able to hang on to the 1-0 lead till the end of the match to secure themselves all three points.
The result saw Arsenal move ahead of Manchester United and into the top five places, displacing the Red Devils while also having one game in hand. It was the first time in nine games between the two sides that less than two goals will be scored in a match but the single goal of the game on Thursday night was enough to help Mikel Arteta and his Gunners side to seize all the three points they needed.
