Arsenal returned to winning ways with a 2-0 victory over Wolves, reclaiming their position at the top of the Premier League table despite a challenging week. The win comes as a much-needed relief for the Gunners after consecutive defeats against Bayern Munich and Aston Villa.

Displaying resilience, Arsenal delivered a determined performance at Molineux, showcasing their ability to bounce back in the face of adversity. Manager Mikel Arteta praised the team’s fortune, acknowledging the significance of such weeks in football.

The opening goal, credited to Leandro Trossard, arrived just before halftime, offering a timely boost for Arsenal. While there was debate over Trossard’s intentionality in the strike, the goal underscored his value to the squad, with only Bukayo Saka outscoring him this season.

The defensive solidity of Arsenal proved instrumental once again, as they secured a clean sheet for the sixth consecutive away league match, setting a club record. Despite facing a depleted Wolves attack missing key players, Arsenal’s defensive line remained resolute, stifling any potential threats.

The Premier League record for the most consecutive away clean sheets is held by Chelsea and Manchester United with seven. The Gunners are one away from equalling the record which they can do in the North London Derby next weekend.

However, concerns persist over Arsenal’s left-back position, which has been a recurring issue throughout the season. With Takehiro Tomiyasu sidelined due to fitness concerns, Jakub Kiwior struggled to assert himself in the role, providing Wolves with opportunities down the flank.

The impending return of Jurrien Timber, set to resume playing for Arsenal’s under-23 side, offers hope for a solution to their left-back woes. Timber’s recovery could provide the necessary stability in defense, bolstering Arsenal’s defensive capabilities for the challenges ahead.

Mikel Arteta was pleased with the win and insist that it is not an easy feat to achieve the kind of consistency the team has shown away from home.

“That’s a very difficult thing to do as a team and especially in this league,” Mikel added. “Big credit to the boys because that gives us a huge platform to win football matches. Now we have another big one, a big London derby against a great team that are in good form, in front of our people. Let’s do it.”
