Odegaard: Today was all about bouncing back 

Arsenal are back on top of the Premier League standings after a thorough 2-0 victory at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

The win comes on the heels of two straight losses for the Gunners, the most recent of which was a midweek defeat to Bayern Munich that saw the North London side ousted from the Champions League at the quarterfinal stage.

A few days prior, Arsenal fell to Aston Villa in a league match that allowed Manchester City to take over the top spot in the standings.

However, the opportunity was there for Arsenal to take back first place with City competing in the FA Cup semifinals this weekend, and that's exactly what the Gunners did as goals by Leandro Trossard and Martin Odegaard secured the crucial three points.

"Massive win for us, it was a tough week for us," Odegaard told Sky Sports. "I think a few tough results and [it was] 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, [and win] 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."
