The chances came but never quite at the remorseless frequency needed to make Wolves buckle. Gabriel Martinelli turned just over when Alexandre Lacazette cut back for him. As for Lacazette, he had clearly seen the critiques aimed at him after a run of two Premier League goals in his last 15 appearances. He needed to shoot more, supporters said. Maybe they also needed to add the implicit part … when the shot is on.
Lacazette’s performance was not the only thing driving north London to distraction. Not for the first time in recent weeks, VAR was not on their side when Nelson Semedo and Martinelli collided inside in the Wolves’ box after 20 seconds. Another for Arteta to take up with referee body PGMOL (Professional Game Match Officials Board). He might also point to how swiftly Craig Pawson sanctioned his players for timewasting at Molineux. Jose Sa was eating clock like Bruce Bogtrotter devours a chocolate cake.
Still, Odegaard probed, a sand wedge of a shot clipping the far upright with Sa stranded. The momentum was relentless and the Emirates Stadium felt it. Pepe was drawing out defenders who were able to sit back earlier in the match. When Saka’s shot was pushed to safety by Sa, it was the Ivorian who picked up the pieces. The ball went from him to Odegaard, on to Lacazette and back to Pepe, whose through ball was slipped right where Romain Saiss had been dragged out from.
