Everyone accustomed with Premier League betting knows that Arsenal are one of the top tier teams that you can bet on and usually obtain great results. But even Arsenal are not unbeatable, and their latest Champions League outing certainly showed that. It’s safe to say that they did not have the best match against Bayern recently, and that cost them their Champions League dream.

But things move on, and being able to regroup after a loss is one of the things that Arsenal have done well in recent years. Following the Champions League defeat to Bayern, Arsenal responded superbly well with an impressive 2-0 win away to Wolves on Saturday night. Leandro Trossard and Martin Odegaard got the all-important goals to send the Gunners back to the top of the table.

It was a much-needed win for Arsenal after the heartbreak in Munich. Defeats happen in football, but knowing how to respond is what sets the good from the great. Obviously it won’t be easy for the Arsenal players to get over their Champions League exit, but they know they have five huge Premier League games they need to focus on as they look to win the title.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta was impressed with the performance at Molineux, as Arsenal secured a vital win and another clean sheet. The North Londoners boast the best defence in the division with just 26 goals conceded in 33 games. They also have the best attack having scored 77 goals, so it’s easy to see why Arsenal deserve to be at the top of the table. They hold a one point lead over Manchester City – who have a game in hand – and only goal difference separates the Gunners from Liverpool so things couldn’t be tighter at the top.

The pressure was on Arsenal heading into the game against Wolves as another defeat would have severely dented their title hopes. Wolves have been a dangerous side all season, especially for the top six, after picking up points against Man City, Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea and Newcastle this season. However, Arsenal responded well to avoid a costly defeat and went home with all three points.

The Gunners had a tough week, but regrouped to produce an excellent all-round performance at a tricky ground, which shows they have learned from last year’s disappointment when they collapsed when the pressure ramped up at the end of the season. This is a positive sign to show Arteta that his young squad are growing and could now be ready to get over the line to win a major title. Arsenal play Chelsea at home on Tuesday night where they can move three points clear at the top of the table, and that would really be a statement from them.

As for Wolves, they’ll have been disappointed with the defeat on Saturday but that won’t define their season. They’ve enjoyed a solid campaign that is destined to end with a mid-table finish so Gary O’Neil can look to build on things next season.
