Arsenal secured a late comeback win over Wolves thanks to a dramatic 95th minute Jose Sa own goal forced by Alexandre Lacazette, which now leaves them just one point off the Premier League top four with two games in hand on Manchester United above them.

The Gunners trailed for most of the game at the Emirates Stadium after Hwang Hee-chan gave Wolves an early lead. But Nicolas Pepe equalised late on, before Lacazette went on to complete the turnaround deep into stoppage time.

Wolves had flexed their muscles straight from kick-off when Romain Saiss flicked the ball into the net from a corner. VAR came to Arsenal’s rescue on that occasion, ruling it offside, but there was nothing to save them when Hwang latched onto Gabriel’s blind back pass.

Moments later, Raul Jimenez snatched at a golden chance to extend the lead. Arsenal were on the ropes at that stage and only 12 minutes were on the clock, but the Gunners were able to gain a foothold and started to ask questions of a resilient Wolves.

Martin Odegaard looked to get the hosts going by pulling the strings, although peppering the Wolves goal only resulted in one shot on target by half-time thanks to a combination of wayward finishing and/or timely blocks. At the break, Sa closing down Gabriel Martinelli as the Brazilian tried to lift it up and over was about the closest they had come.
