Arsenal Mocked Over Celebrations Following Win Over Wolves

Arsenal have been mocked for their celebrations following their win over Wolves on Thursday night, after accusations it was as if they'd 'won the Premier League.'

The Gunners emerged from a tough visit to Wolves with all three points, thanks to Gabriel's 25th minute goal and despite yet another red card.

It was a much needed three points for Mikel Arteta's team in a week where top four rivals Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur both dropped points.

The visitors celebrated at full time, having had to hang on with 10 men after Gabriel Martinelli's controversial red card, going to thank the fans for their support, but according to one Wolves player they 'over celebrated.'

Midfielder Ruben Neves accused the north Londoners of acting like they'd just 'won the Premier League,' with their post match actions.

"We saw the way they celebrated the win and that shows the level we are," Neves told BBC Sport.

"I didn't see Arsenal celebrating like this in the past 10 years - it was like they won the league."

There was some controversy surrounding Gabriel's winner, with Alexandre Lacazette accused of impeding Jose Sa at the corner.

Neves feels that a foul should have been given, adding, "With their goal there is some doubt about whether it was a foul or not but that's football. We are used to these decisions.

"...I can accept the decision about their goal but in some games they give it and in some games they don't. They need to do the same decisions in every game because it's frustrating for us."

Manager Bruno Lage also wasn't convinced but refused to use the decision as an excuse for the loss, saying, "For the goal, saw some contact with the goalkeeper in the six-yard box.

"I think the striker touches Jose, his foot on his hand, and in my opinion it's a foul, but we cannot find that excuse."

However the goal wasn't the controversy that courted the most conversation following the game, with Martinelli's sending off kicking off plenty of debate.

The forward picked up two yellow cards in the same minute for two fouls in the same incident, something that is in the rules but is extremely rare to see.

Rio Ferdinand wasn't happy with the decision to send the player off, and was backed by Michael Owen and Robbie Savage in the BT Sport studio.
