Lacazette hails Arsenal's victory over Wolves as further battles loom


With Wolves beating Spurs in North London in Sunday, Arsenal's tremendous triumph at Molineux on Thursday has been brought into sharp focus. 

Gabriel's first half goal to ensure Mikel Arteta's Gunners emerged 1-0 victors underlined just how important the win was. 

Captain Alexandre Lacazette played his part as Arsenal clinched three hard-fought points. The former Lyon striker was delighted to see the team return to winning ways on Thursday, and even more so with the manner of the win. While Spurs odds of finishing in the top four dropped further - in fact if you fancy a flutter you'd be better off trying https://www.mycasinoadviser.com/  . The Gunners seemed to be in control at 1-0 up, but then had to show plenty of character after Gabriel Martinelli's double yellow card reduced us to ten men for the final 25 minutes, including injury time.

"In the end we handled the pressure, and to play the end of the game like this, it’s a really good win," Laca told Arsenal Media after the game.

"We deserved it because throughout the game we had chances to score. I had one and should have scored, but in the end the team was strong."

The win lifts us to fifth place in the Premier League, one point behind West Ham, but with two games in hand on the Hammers. We've got 16 games remaining this season as we chase Champions League qualification.

"Each game is going to be really important if we want to go to the Champions League," Laca added. "We know in January we were not good enough, so we want to be better to increase our chance for the top four."
