Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves has taken aim at Arsenal for their wild full-time celebrations of their 1-0 win at Molineux.
The Gunners moved within a point of the top four with the hard-fought victory over their front four rivals.
They survived late pressure from the hosts after Gabriel Martinelli was sent off for two yellows within 30 seconds, which was incredibly the club’s fourth dismissal in six matches in 2022.
But Neves took aim at Arsenal for their crazy full-time celebrations, insisting it shows how far they have come under Bruno Lage.
“We saw the way they celebrated the win and it shows how good we are,” Neves told the BBC.
“I haven’t seen Arsenal celebrate like this in the last 10 years – it was like they won the league.”

Alexandre Lacazette was delighted Arsenal got the job done as he praised his side’s courage to get the result.
Lacazette told BT Sport: “It means a lot because we really wanted to win this game.
“We know set pieces are important and I’m happy we were able to score today. I wanted to be the first at prom and I think I was.
“It was stressful in this type of game but that’s football. I’m really proud, everyone at the back did their job.
Mikel Arteta, however, was left baffled by Martinelli’s two yellow cards.
“It’s quite difficult to play against Wolves away and we made it more difficult with 10 men,” he told BT Sport. “We suffered a lot in the last 10 minutes.
“I’ve never seen anything like this. Maybe the rules say it’s possible. It was the first time in my career. But we managed to win the game.
