Arsenal took the chance to open up a four-point lead at the top of the Premier League with a 2-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday and Everton enjoyed their first win since being docked 10 points as they beat Nottingham Forest.
Early goals by Bukayo Saka and Martin Odegaard put Arsenal in control against Wolves at The Emirates but Mikel Arteta’s side had to withstand a late rally by the visitors.
“It’s been a good week with some good results. We’re there at the top and we have to keep improving and keep pushing,” Arsenal skipper Odegaard said. “The schedule is tough, but almost the whole season is tough.”
