RUBEN NEVES have claimed Arsenal ‘celebrated as if they had won the league’ after beating Wolverhampton Wanderers last night.
Defender Gabriel sealed a 1-0 win after knocking out Ben White’s home side from a corner at Molineux.
But Mikel ArtetaTheir team was forced to hold out for the last 20 minutes after Gabriel Martinelli sent off for two bookings in FIVE SECONDS each other’s.
Both are infractions – one for blocking the throw-in and the other for fouling Chiquinho.
After a superb counter-attack, Arteta hugged his coaches at the final whistle and his players hugged each other in front of the passionate away fans.
However, Wolves star Neves claims he hasn’t seen anything like it in the ‘last 10 years’ and feels overreacted compared to Archer.
Wolves’ 24-year-old Portuguese midfielder told BBC Sport: “We’ve done well but we’re having a hard time scoring and conceding a lot in set pieces.
“With their goal, there was some doubt as to whether it was a foul but that is football. We are used to these decisions.

“We need to improve a lot in terms of scoring because we are creating a lot of chances but we are not good enough in that part of the game.
“I can accept the decision about their goals but in some games they give it and some games it doesn’t.
“They need to make the same decisions every game because it upsets us.
“We’ve seen how they celebrate their victory and that shows our class.
“I haven’t seen Arsenal celebrate like this in 10 years – like they’ve won the league.”
Arsenal’s first win in six games took them to fifth in the Premier League.
It also denied eighth-placed Wolves the chance to win a fourth straight.
