Arsenal have survived a nervy finish to establish a four-point lead at the top of the Premier League with a 2-1 win over Wolves at the Emirates Stadium.
With closest rivals Manchester City not playing until Sunday, the Gunners took full advantage on Saturday with Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard netting in the opening 13 minutes before a late Matheus Cunha strike had them holding on for the points.
Saka needed just six minutes to open the scoring after being slipped through by Takehiro Tomiyasu, and they doubled their lead seven minutes later when Oleksandr Zinchenko squared for Odegaard to sweep home.
Arsenal missed their chances to kill the game off and the visitors made them battle for the points after Nelson Semedo nipped the ball off the toes of Zinchenko and Cunha slammed home.

However, there was a worry for Eddie Howe in the final minutes of the game when goalkeeper Nick Pope was taken off after appearing to injure his shoulder and was replaced by Martin Dubravka.
