Arsenal welcomes Wolves at home in round 14 of the Premier League. Coach Arteta’s team just had to play in the middle of the week but they still entered the game very proactively. Wolves also accepted to play in a defensive position without many pillars.
However, the away team could only stand for 6 minutes. Saka started with a good horizontal pass, then Jesus and Tomiyasu bounced off the wall well to create an opportunity for Saka to finish the score. The early goal gave the home team psychological momentum and the second goal soon came.
In the 13th minute, Arsenal had another rhythmic coordination phase. Zinchenko passed back well and Odegaard finished accurately to double the gap. Wolves appeared too weak in their attacks under Arsenal’s pressure.
The home team had a few more situations, but Martinelli shot into the post and Jesus finished from 2 meters away. At the end of the first half, Arsenal had a 2-goal advantage.
In the second half, Arsenal actively slowed down the pace of the match despite having superior possession of the ball. Therefore, the chances were few and most were long shots, but Rice or Saka were not successful.
It seemed like the match would end quite boringly, but suddenly came another surprise. In the 86th minute, Cunha curled a shot from outside the penalty area that Raya could not block. Just 2 minutes later, Nketiah had a chance to score, but his shot hit the post. In the end, Arsenal won against Nketiah.
