Arsene Wenger has nothing else on his mind other than making sure Arsenal get the result they need at Wolves on Saturday.

With leaders Chelsea and Manchester United - on whom Arsenal have a game in hand - clashing at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, the trip to Molineux presents Wenger's young side with a real opportunity to lay down a marker ahead of the international break.

Wenger knows full well the importance of maintaining the momentum from Wednesday night's 4-1 won over AZ Alkmaar against Mick McCarthy's side, and said: "You know that a successful season is to grab opportunities when you have it. We have a good opportunity to gain some ground on one of the two teams. That is what we will try to do."

He added: "I am focused on us winning the game, afterwards I will take any result at Stamford Bridge."

The Gunners have no fresh injury concerns from their midweek European outing.

However, defender Gael Clichy (back) and striker Nicklas Bendtner (groin) remain sidelined.

Armand Traore and Carlos Vela (both groin) are close to fitness but will not be included this weekend, and neither will Jack Wilshere (ankle).

Midfielder Denilson (back) and England forward Theo Walcott (knee) should be training again following the international break.
