Bukayo Saka has urged Arsenal to keep their cool in the race for European qualification.

The 18-year-old scored his first Premier League goal in the Gunners' impressive 2-0 win at European rivals Wolves.

It left them seventh, three points behind Nuno Espirito Santo's side, and six adrift fifth-placed Man United.

Manager Mikel Arteta admitted afterwards there was no room for error and Saka, who penned a new long-term deal at the Emirates this month, refused to get caught up in European talk."

We're just taking each game by each game because we know how important every point is at this stage," he said.

"We're just so happy to get the win because we know how much it means in terms of the table and the position we finish."

Saka opened the scoring two minutes before the break when he hooked in Kieran Tierney's deflected cross.

Alexandre Lacazette made it 2-0 late on, firing in off the post, as Wolves' Champions League hopes suffered a blow.
