Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves says Arsenal celebrated their win over them like they had “won the league”.
The Gunners held on to beat the West Midlands side 1-0 after being reduced to 10 men when Gabriel Martinelli was sent off after 69 minutes.
The victory was Arsenal’s first in 2022 and moved them up to fifth in the Premier League.
“We saw the way they celebrated the win and that shows the level we are,” said Portugal international Neves.
“I didn’t see Arsenal celebrating like this in the past 10 years – it was like they won the league.”
Gabriel bundled home Alexandre Lacazette’s flick-on to score for Arsenal, who claimed a first win in six games to close to within a point of West Ham having played two fewer games.
