Mikel Arteta rejoices after victory over Wolves
The Gunners had a great game against Wolves, to win 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium. Hwang Hee-chan was the one to open the scoring for the Wolves early, and it wasn’t until the 80th minute that Nicolas Pepe helped the home team equalize. Then, in the last minute of injury time, Alexandre Lacazette made a big contribution to Arsenal’s goal. The three points that help Arsenal are only one point behind the fourth-ranked team, Man Utd, although there are still two matches in hand.
And former Gunners Lee Dixon has reason to think his former club should aim to overtake Chelsea – who are in third place with five points more, but have played more than one game – not. Must be Man Utd.
Dixon told Amazon Prime: ” If I was in the Arsenal dressing room I wouldn’t be looking at Man Utd now, I’d be looking at Chelsea.
With a game in hand, we could be two points behind Chelsea, and they still have to play in the Champions League. I am paying attention to where Arsenal should be, or should be, for many years. Now, suddenly, that’s what Arsenal should be aiming for.
What would Tony Adams (the legendary captain of the Gunners) say in the dressing room right now? It ‘s ‘forget Man Utd, we’ll chase Chelsea’. “
