Van Persie bags Gunners brace

Next Story

Wolves somehow avoided a landslide as Arsenal banished memories of Newcastle's four-goal comeback last week with a comprehensive 2-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium.

Robin Van Persie scored both goals, the first an athletic volleyed effort, and having surrendered a 4-0 lead at St James' Park the Gunners never looked like losing their way this time.

Relegation candidates Wolves, meanwhile, may just be happy not to have conceded more after the hosts somehow failed to add to their tally despite numerous chances.
