Arsenal kept their top four finish hopes alive after a dramatic 2-1 victory over Wolves in the Premier League.

Mikel Arteta's team fell behind after Hwang Hee-chan's early goal at the Emirates Stadium. Nicolas Pepe then came off the bench to equalise in the 82nd minute before Wolves keeper Jose Sa deflected Alexandre Lacazette's shot into his own net in the final moments of the match.

The Gunners moved up to fifth place and are just one point behind fourth placed Manchester United with two games in hand.

Lacazette endured a frustrating evening and is still without a league goal from open play since December 11 but he kept the team moving forward.

"Yes and that is what we need as a team," Arteta said of Lacazette's efforts.

"Now we are building a team with a lot of young talent and new players and they need those experiences.

"I said to them at half-time, if you want to be in the top at the end of May we are going to have to overturn results maybe two, three or four times and today was an opportunity.

"I'm especially happy when a player makes an individual error that costs a goal and the team can put that aside and win the match and everybody is talking about it."
