"It was a very good response, so proud of them. We deserved to win the game and got another clean sheet again.  [from the 

"Obviously disappointed to lose against Bayern, small margins but we have five games to go and we are top again. 

"Even at 2-0 you are never sure and they [Wolves] are a good side, they made some changes and caused us some problems.

Keeping a clean sheet against Wolves was crucial and the former Everton midfielder thumbed up his side's rsilience and defensive nous: "We've been really consistent defensively and that's the platform needed to win games in this league. All we can do is win our games and when you see the form that we are in, in the calendar year, it is unbelieveable and you are still not top but it's the quality of this league.

Arteta praised the quality of goal scored by Leandro Trossard who has been in magnificent form for the Gunners and responded thus when asked about the quality of goal scored by the Belgian forward: They all count and he made an impact again for the team and that's what we need. 

Arteta went further to speak on the changes he made in the starting lineup and the saves made by David Raya.

First, the Spaniard spoke on Takehiro Tomiyasu not featuring in the match.

"He [Tomiyasu] had a knock in the game and he had a bit of swelling and he wasn't fit to play this game. 

"For the rest I have picked a very strong side. We have made some changes because we need some freshness because  of the type of game we expect. 

Goalkeeper Raya kept the Gunners' 10th clean sheet of the year 2024 and Arteta was asked to comment about the performance of his countryman.

"Very, very good. He didn't concede anything up to that point and we had some very open sitations to score goals ad we didn't, and that would have changed the course of the game for sure. David was outstanding in that moment to make the save that we needed. 

The Gunners' focus will now shift to Tuesday's Premier League clash against Chelsea.
