Arsenal dented Wolves' Champions League hopes as Bukayo Saka's first Premier League goal helped the Gunners to an impressive 2-0 victory at the Molineux Stadium on Saturday.

The 18-year-old Saka's controlled finish in the 43rd minute put the visitor ahead at half time after a low-key first half.

Adama Traore fired over as in-form Wolves struggled to find its usual attacking potency. Alexandre Lacazette came off the bench to secure the points for Mikel Arteta's side with a clinical finish in the 86th minute.
