Arsenal face Chelsea next, but will go into that match on Tuesday with a one-point advantage over City, while Liverpool will hope to keep the pace by beating Fulham on Sunday. The Gunners were on top during the early exchanges. Kai Havertz volleyed straight at Jose Sa inside the opening minute, while Declan Rice shot narrowly wide from the edge of the box.

However, David Raya had to be on top form at the other end after Joao Gomes embarked on a strong run down the right flank and unleashed a fierce shot from a tight angle, which Arsenal’s goalkeeper brilliantly tipped onto a post.

But it was the Gunners who broke through just before half-time, with the persistent Gabriel Jesus teeing up Trossard, whose somewhat sliced first-time drive arrowed towards the top-right corner, rattling in off the corner of post and crossbar.

But with Wolves – who sit 11th – lacking so many key players due to injury, their hopes of a comeback always looked set to prove fruitless, and after Sa had denied Rice and then substitute Gabriel Martinelli, Odegaard finally rounded matters off deep into stoppage time, curling home from a cute angle to finish the job and put Arsenal’s title challenge firmly back on track.Manchester City secured their spot in the FA Cup final after Bernardo Silva’s late winner gave them a 1-0 win over Chelsea at Wembley Stadium.
