After a series of stumbles in their pursuit of the title Arsenal were looking for a perfect tonic, and so it proved as they beat Wolves at Molineux 2-0.
Arsene Wenger knows he commands the respect of his players, but even he couldn’t have expected such a quick fire response to his rallying call earlier this week. The lack of goals had troubled the Frenchman, but his players had obviously taken note as the north London team took the lead within 40 seconds of the kick off. Tomas Rosicky picked the ball up and ran at the Wolves defence before passing the ball out wide to Bacary Sagna. With the French international enjoying acres of space, he was able to pick his cross and find Marouane Chamakh who got between the two defenders and nodded into the bottom corner. The goal was clocked at 39 seconds, and relegation threatened Wolves were shell-shocked.
