Wolverhampton Wanderers beat Arsenal 3-1 at Molineux last night.
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.
In a team full of exciting players, Bennett often flies under the radar, and fans have praised the centre back as an unsung hero in this Wolves side.
Others called him 'absolutely awesome' and 'brilliant' for his performance against Arsenal, with some comparing him to Paolo Maldini and Franz Beckenbauer.
Special shout out to Bennett, we all know there is another CB coming in the summer but he was superb again last night. That block in the first half was top class and everything you'd expect from him, will still be around this side in the next 12 months #wwfc— Danny Powers (@Danny_Powers) April 25, 2019

Was I watching Ryan Bennett or Paolo Maldini last night— ASH (@ItsAshJ) April 25, 2019
What a great result, but can we take a moment to appreciate Ryan Bennett? 3 wonderful cross field passes, 1 leading to the corner from which we scored the 2nd and a stunning block on Lacazette half way into 2nd half. What a guy #wwfc— James Spencer (@jspencer_1) April 24, 2019
