Arsenal Boost Top-Four Hopes After Dramatic Comeback Win Against Wolves

Arsenal ignited their top-four hopes with a dramatic 2-1 comeback win against Wolves at the Emirates on Thursday night.

Jose Sa’s own goal in the fifth minute of stoppage-time completed the dramatic win for Mikel Arteta’s men.

Alexandre Lacazette, who had missed a succession of earlier chances, forced the goal, his close-range effort bouncing in off the Wolves goalkeeper for the winner.

Substitute Nicolas Pepe had come off the bench to equalise in the 82nd minute.

Wolves, were seeking revenge for their 1-0 loss to the Gunners at Molineux, defended superbly after that, with Conor Coady, Max Kilman and Romain Saiss helping to keep the Gunners at bay.

But Arsenal finally made the breakthrough when substitutes Pepe and Eddie Nketiah combined and the dramatic winning goal, a moment of redemption for Lacazette.

The win saw Arsenal move up to fifth, a point off Manchester United with two games in hand.
