Arsenal rebounded from their Champions League disappointment by reclaiming the top spot in the Premier League with a 2-0 victory over Wolves.

Leandro Trossard and Martin Odegaard scored crucial goals at the end of each half, propelling Arsenal one point ahead of Manchester City, who have a game in hand.

Despite a recent three-game winless streak, including a Champions League exit to Bayern Munich and a Premier League loss to Aston Villa, Mikel Arteta’s team regrouped to stay in contention for the title.

While initially sluggish, Arsenal found their rhythm and capitalized on a stroke of luck when Trossard’s deflected shot found the back of the net just before halftime.

The second half saw little goalmouth action as fatigue set in for Arsenal, playing their fourth game in 11 days. Despite this, Wolves, missing key attacking players Matheus Cunha and Pedro Neto due to injury, couldn’t muster enough threat to challenge Arsenal’s title aspirations.

Martin Odegaard sealed the victory for Arsenal in stoppage time, catching Wolves’ goalkeeper Jose Sa off guard at his near post.

Meanwhile, Liverpool, in third place, have the opportunity to level points with Arsenal when they play Fulham on Sunday. At the bottom of the table, Luton Town’s hopes of survival took a heavy blow with a 5-1 defeat to Brentford, leaving them one point behind Nottingham Forest, who face Everton in a crucial match.

“Today was a bad day for us as a club but the teams directly above us play each other and we will not be out of it this weekend. It’s important we all remember that,” said Luton boss Rob Edwards.

Brentford took a significant step towards securing their place in the Premier League with a commanding performance, even in the absence of England striker Ivan Toney due to injury.

Yoane Wissa netted twice before halftime, with goals from Ethan Pinnock, Keane Lewis-Potter, and Kevin Schade sealing the victory for the Bees.

Meanwhile, Burnley’s 4-1 win against Sheffield United brought them within two points of Luton and three of safety.

Despite a brief resurgence with a goal from Gustavo Hamer, Sheffield United’s dismal defending ultimately sealed their fate, leaving them 10 points adrift of safety with only five games remaining.

“I won’t name names, but I think there were a few players out there who wanted to get out of there pretty quickly after the fourth went in,” said Wilder. “You just can’t have (that).”
