Arsenal captain Martin Ødegaard said his side had a massive win against Wolves after a two-goal victory at Molineux Stadium.

The Norwegian international secured the win for the Gunners with an injury time goal. After Leandro Trossard scored the first goal in the final minutes of the first half.

Arsenal’s win over Wolverhampton leaves the Gunners temporarily top of the table. Three days after a loss to Bayern Munich knocked them out of the Champions League.

“Massive win for us, it was a tough week for us,” Odegaard told Sky Sports. “I think a few tough results and hard emotionally but we had to keep going. Today was all about bouncing back and getting the win and we did that so I’m happy.

“It was tough, a big disappointment, obviously we wanted to go further in the Champions League, the game before [against Aston Villa].

“It is hard but the good thing in football is that you always get another chance and still a long way to go and still tight in the race so today was all about getting back to business and we did.”

Ødegaard spoke about the difficulty of the game against Wolverhampton. He emphasised that the team needed three points and they got them.

“Wolves are a good team, well organised,” Odegaard said. “A physical team who defend well and they made it hard for us but we just had to keep on playing and we knew that we were going to get the chances and the goals in the end.”

He added: “It’s always a bit tricky when you’re 1-0 up. We wanted to get the second one earlier but again it’s a good team and we have to give them credit as well but I don’t think it was our best performance.

“Today was all about the three points and we got them. Three points was the key, that was the main thing.”
