Wolverhampton Wanderers produced a superb performance on Wednesday night by beating Arsenal 3-1 at Molineux.

Wolves had somehow failed to score against Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday despite hammering shot after shot at goal, toiling to a 0-0 draw.

There was no such profligacy on Wednesday night though, and Wolves went ahead of Ruben Neves whipped a superb free kick into the corner of the net.

 

Jonny crossed for Matt Doherty to head home the second, before Diogo Jota's run and finish had Wolves 3-0 up before half time.

Wolves did concede one in the second half, as Sokratis Papastathopoulos pulled one back for Arsenal, but it was a key win for Wolves as they took back seventh place.

A host of players have been hailed for their performances, but defender Ryan Bennett has been given the praise he deserves after a superb display.
