After Gabriel Martinelli was sent off after 69 minutes, the Gunners hung on to win 1-0 over the West Midlands outfit.

Arsenal won for the first time in 2022, moving them up to fifth place in the Premier League.

“We watched how they celebrated their victory, and it indicates the level we’re at,” remarked Portugal’s Neves.

“I haven’t seen Arsenal celebrate like this in a decade – it was as if they had won the league.”

Arsenal’s Gabriel bundled home Alexandre Lacazette’s flick-on for a goal, bringing the Gunners to within a point of West Ham despite having played two fewer games.

Lacazette was thought to have fouled goalie Jose Sa in the build-up to the goal by Wolves, who are currently in ninth place.

“We did well,” said Neves, “but we’re having trouble scoring goals and conceding a lot of set-pieces.”

“There’s considerable debate about whether their goal was a foul or not, but that’s football. We’re used to making decisions like this.”

We need to work on scoring goals a lot more since we’re creating chances but aren’t good enough in that area.

“I can accept their goal-scoring judgment, but they provide it in certain games and don’t in others. Because it’s frustrating for us, they need to make the same decisions in every game.”

Red Card Issue

Martin Keown, an Arsenal veteran, has slammed referee Michael Oliver for sending off Gabriel Martinelli against Wolves for two infringements in the same passage of play.

Oliver’s choice was regarded by Keown as “pedantic.”

Martinelli pulled Chiquinho over in the space of five seconds, attempting to prevent Wolves from getting a quick throw in.

The Brazilian attacker appeared to expect to be cautioned, but was taken aback when Oliver issued him two yellow and then a red card.

“I felt it was quite rough on the player, they are going to be without him for a really important game,” Keown remarked after the game on BT Sport.

“They saw it through and it didn’t matter in the end, but I thought the referee was being very pedantic.”

“Perhaps we’ll see this all around the country.” It might be a new directive. It almost ruined the game for Arsenal, but it didn’t matter in the end. Arsenal has a fantastic three points.”
