Arsenal break club record during 2-0 win at Wolves which will never be matched

Arsenal break club record during 2-0 win at Wolves which will never be matched

Arsenal set a new record with the 2-0 win over Wolves at Molineux on Saturday evening.

Arsenal set a new club record as a result of the 2-0 win over Wolves on Saturday evening.

After suffering back-to back defeats at the hands of Aston Villa and Bayern Munich, the Gunners got back to winning ways at Molineux.

Goals from Leandro Trossard and Martin Odegaard saw the Gunners return to the top of the table.

The triumph came at a pivotal point for Arsenal and in picking up the victory, Mikel Arteta's men did something they have never done in their entire history.

For the first time ever, the North London outfit have kept consecutive clean sheets in six away games.

The run started with thumping victories over West Ham, Burnley and Sheffield United and then an impressive defensive display to hold champions Manchester City to a stalemate at the Etihad Stadium.

Goalkeeper David Raya was then unbreachable in the wins over Brighton and Wolves.

Arsenal have the best away defence in the league by some distance, conceding just 26 goals in 33 games.

They will set a new Premier League record if they keep a clean sheet in next week's North London derby away at Spurs.

Speaking after the game, Arteta hailed the solid backbone of his side.

“That’s a very difficult thing to do as a team and especially in this league," he said on the six away clean sheets in a row.

"Big credit to the boys because that gives us a huge platform to win football matches.

“Now we have another big one, a big London derby against a great team that are in good form, in front of our people. Let’s do it.”

Raya made a crucial save with the score at 0-0 and Arteta described his heroics as "outstanding".

He added: “David was outstanding in that moment to make the save that we needed and then we took advantage.

“I think he’s been very consistent throughout the whole season. The numbers are proof of that. I think the timing of the first goal was really helpful as well. Really happy.”
