Arsenal’s title chances were kept alive by a late injury time goal by striker Nicklas Bendtner as the Gunners snatched a victory over 10 men Wolverhampton. The London side seemed set to drop decisive points until substitute Bendtner rose to head home Bacary Sagna’s cross. The hosts dominated the game but were frustrated by their own inability in front of goal and Wolves’ commitment.
Even after Karl Henry’s dismissal for a lunge on Tomas Rosicky, Wolves battled hard but have nothing to show for it. Once again Arsenal were thankful to the late contribution of Bendtner, who scored a last-minute winner at Hull last month and who came off the bench here to score a goal that keeps the Gunners three points behind leaders Chelsea, who won 2-1 at Manchester United in Saturday’s early kick-off.
