Arsenal have fought hard to overcome a determined Wolves outfit, winning 2-0 thanks to a Marouane Chamakh brace.

The Moroccan scored at both ends of the match, kicking things off in the first minute when he headed home an Alex Song cross before securing the points in injury time with a neat finish from a Cesc Fabregas pass to get the Gunners back on the winners list.

The points edged them closer to second-placed Manchester United but kept them five behind league leaders Chelsea as Wolves remained second bottom with just one win in their past 11.
