Report: Wolves 0-2 Arsenal
Marouane Chamakh scored in the first and last minutes to get Arsenal’s title push back on track at Wolves.
Chamakh put the Gunners ahead inside the first minute when heading home Alex Song’s cross after good work by Tomas Rosicky.
Marcus Hahnemann then spread himself big and saved from Andrey Arshavin in a one-on-one soon afterwards.
But Wolves kept in the game and Richard Stearman’s effort from a corner was cleared off the line by Rosicky, before Arshavin hit the post after a good run on goal.
Johan Djourou’s effort from a corner was also cleared off the line by Karl Henry before Lukasz Fabianski saved from Christophe Berra at the death and Chamakh slotted home at the other end to earn a vital victory for the Gunners.
Arsenal’s win was the perfect riposte after their shock home reversal against Newcastle on Sunday and kept themselves on course in the title race.
