Arsenal 2 - Wolves 0

A comfortable win today at home for the Gunners, who stay in  second place in the league, 4 points behind Manchester United. Wolves hardly threatened the Arsenal defense; Szczesny didn't even have to break a sweat in the Arsenal goal. On offense, meanwhile, the Gunners cut the Wolves' defense to shreds. Their goal tally could have been - and really should have been - much higher. Van Persie, who scored both Arsenal goals, Walcott, and Arshavin all wasted great scoring chances. But let's not be greedy. Overall, it was a reassuring performance after Arsenal's second-half collapse at Newcastle last weekend.

Now, the Gunners have to get ready for a mid-week Champion's League match at home to high-flying Barcelona. No one expects Arsenal to get through to the next round, but if they can steal an advantage at the Emirates Stadium this week, that would put pressure on Barca for the return leg at the Camp Nou in a couple weeks' time.
