Arsenal Beat Wolves Martinelli Get Red Card
Arsenal defeated Wolves for the first time in 2022, with Gabriel scoring the sole goal and Gabriel Martinelli receiving an odd red card.
Gabriel bundled home Alexandre Lacazette’s flick-on for Wolves’ first Premier League goal since October.
Gunners forward Martinelli was sent off in the second half for two bookings given at the same time for infringements seconds apart – preventing a throw-in and a foul on Chiquinho.
Following that, the bigger chances followed, with Lacazette firing wide, but the visitors held on for the win.
Aaron Ramsdale of Arsenal denied Romain Saiss and Leander Dendoncker, while Chiquinho’s attempt was blocked on the line.
Arsenal’s first victory in six matches lifted them to fifth place and denied eighth-placed Wolves a fourth consecutive league victory.
