Arsenal and Liverpool played their late matches for the 7th day of the Premier League on Wednesday. At home, they respectively won against Everton (4-0) and Wolverhampton (2-0).
After a slight slump in the first half of February, Arsenal have regained their cruising speed. Already victorious over Aston Villa and Leicester on the last two days of the championship, the Gunners chained a third success in a row on Wednesday, this time on behalf of the seventh Premier League lifter. A late match perfectly mastered by the locals who took a scathing revenge (4-0) on Toffees who had beaten them a month earlier.
After the opener, from Saka (40th), Martinelli immediately doubled the bet (45th + 1). No reaction on the opposing side and suddenly Odegaard worsened the mark in the 71st before Martinelli went there with his double (80th). A high-class performance for the men of Mikel Arteta who now have an impressive fifteen point lead over Manchester City, his first pursuer.
Liverpool sniffs Europe
At the same time, Liverpool also received as part of the seventh day, and the Reds did not miss the opportunity to come back in the wake of Newcastle (5th). Against them, Wolverhampton resisted for a long, long time, but after a heatstroke and a disallowed goal for Nunez, the visitors cracked on Van Dijk’s opener (73rd). The locals then took shelter less than five minutes later on a goal from Salah (77th).
Thanks to this 2-0 success, Jürgen Klopp and his family can once again hope to return to the Top 5, synonymous with Europe next year. However, the challenge remains difficult for Liverpool, which has been showing a sometimes worrying face since the start of the season.
