Arsenal regained their position at the top of the Premier League table after securing a hard-fought 1-0 win against Wolves on Saturday night. The victory came as a much-needed relief for the Gunners following a challenging week marked by two defeats in different competitions.

The North London club faced setbacks prior to their visit to the West Midlands, suffering a 2-0 defeat against Aston Villa at the Emirates Stadium, relinquishing their lead to Manchester City in the league standings. Subsequently, Arsenal endured further disappointment in the midweek fixture, succumbing to a defeat against Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals, ending their European campaign.

Determined to keep their title aspirations alive, Arsenal arrived at Molineux in dire need of a win, and they managed to accomplish their objective. In the 44th minute of the game, Leandro Trossard capitalised on a stroke of luck to break the deadlock against Wolves. Assisted by Gabriel Jesus, Trossard’s strike, though fortuitous, found the top corner of the net, putting the Gunners ahead.

Trossard’s performance garnered praise from Arsenal legend Martin Keown, who commended the Belgian forward’s contribution to the team. Speaking to Premier League Productions, Keown highlighted Trossard’s impact since joining the club and his value despite a relatively modest transfer fee.

“It’s a good play from Arsenal. There’s a suggestion maybe Jesus had received a foul there but he gets up quickly. He [Trossard] just swings a foot at it. He’s been a revelation since he came to club. Value for money? £27 million!”

Apart from his crucial goal, Trossard’s overall performance showcased his versatility and effectiveness on the field. According to Sofascore statistics, the 29-year-old forward demonstrated his prowess by completing one dribble, engaging in 10 ground duels, making one key pass, and contributing defensively with a tackle.

In the dying moments of injury time, Martin Odegaard sealed the victory for Arsenal, slotting the ball past Wolves’ goalkeeper Jose Sa from a tight angle, following commendable teamwork involving Declan Rice and Kai Havertz.
