  • Electric Jota scores
  • Another Neves distance beauty (video)
  • Jonny instrumental in 3-goal first half

Wolves rode an electric first half past a barely-interested Arsenal to reclaim seventh place on the Premier League table with a 3-1 win at the Molineux Stadium on Wednesday.

Arsenal remains fifth with 66 points, while Wolves move to 51 on the season behind goals from Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota, and Matt Doherty.

Sokratis Papastathopoulos scored Arsenal’s goal, as the Gunners lost to Wolves for the first time since 1979.

Wolves had the best of the early chances, with Joao Moutinho curving a 20-yard attempt wide of the near post and Jonny Otto winning a dangerous free kick.

And that second chance hit pay dirt, as Neves did what he often does in such situations. A sensational free kick zipped over the wall and past a flying Bernd Leno.

The Arsenal keeper stopped a fireball cross from Diogo Jota in the 36th. Wolves scored off an ensuing corner kick, with Jonny sweeping a cross into the box for Doherty to nod home.

Jota made it 3-0 for the Wolves before halftime, as Leno certainly will regret his inability to get more than a piece of a low drive. Jota humiliated Sokratis with a shimmy before hitting it under the keeper.

Sokratis pulled a goal back with an 80th minute header that seemed destined to be a mere souvenir, and was.

Jonny Otto won a free kick outside the 18, and Neves was in prime position to seek his fourth goal of the Premier League season and first since Feb. 2.

Jonny found Matt Doherty for a second goal in the 37th minute, as Wolves are threatening to run riot.

Wolves retake control of seventh place with a win, moving to 51 points, while Arsenal will remain fifth with 66 points.
