The Sun - Wolves 1 Arsenal 4
ARSENE WENGER does not do counting chickens - certainly not in November. The Arsenal boss hates the 11th month of the year, for all the kind of psycho-babble reasons that tend to afflict football managers.

The Mirror - Wolves 1-4 Arsenal match report
Arsenal are on course for a record-breaking ton of Premier League goals and it is the fear of a goal drought which is driving them on.


The Daily Mail - Wolves 1 Arsenal 4: Goal crazy Gunners on way to 150
Unlike out on the pitch, there was a defensiveness in Arsenal as they discussed yet another goal-glut. But after this four-goal performance, the statisticians were busy thumbing through the record books. Never mind becoming the first side in Premier League history to top 100 goals - if Arsenal play 50 games this season, not unreasonable as they are involved in four competitions, they could rack up 150.

The Daily Star - GUNS GOING GREAT TONS
Arsenal's bid to become the Premier League’s first ton-up boys motored on in emphatic style yet again.

The Daily Express - WENGER WANTS MORE OF THE SAME
Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal have the capability of making a strong challenge for the Barclays Premier League title.

The Times - Arsenal consider membership of exclusive hundred club
Arsenal are playing down expectations that they can become the first team to hit the century mark of Premier League goals in a season.

The Independent - Wenger plays down flying start to his 'cruellest month'
Many football managers would agree with T S Eliot that "April is the cruellest month", the time of year when their hopes are finally killed off. For Arsène Wenger, oddly, it is November that has in recent seasons been a wasteland of lost points and dreams. Three years ago, there were defeats at Fulham and Bolton to kill off any serious championship challenge; last year, successive losses to Aston Villa and Manchester City left them with too much to do, despite beating Chelsea on the final day of the month.

The Daily TelegraphArsenal gunning for 100 Premier League goals following defeat of Wolves at Molineux
Arsenal are on course to become the first team to score 100 goals in a Premier League season. And the worrying thing for their opponents is that Arsène Wenger believes his side will get even better.

The Guardian - Arsenal's four-goal haul against Wolves leaves Wenger eyeing record
With a manager as forward-thinking as Arsène Wenger in charge it seems odd to suggest that Arsenal are playing a brand of football which belongs in a bygone era. But what other conclusion can one draw from a remarkable goal ratio that puts Arsenal on course not only to become the first Premier League club to score more than 100 in a season but also to get within touching distance of the top-flight record, which stands at 128 and was set by Aston Villa in 1931.
