on a vital win...
It keeps us in the title race, yes. First it was important to forget Barcelona for 24 hours and focus on today's game, and that was not easy. But we did it well - I think we had a good focus. We were a bit jaded physically but we kept going and we were serious, we didn't make a mistake at the back. In the end we got a deserved victory against a resilient Wolves team who had a great goalkeeper. At the end of the day we kept it late as with many times but overall we deserved to win the game.

on all the late goals...
I put that down to our mental tenacity, our unity and the focus of the players who come on. Everybody works in the same direction. And as well, we take advantage of our technical superiority in the final part of the game, most of the time.

on playing against 10 men...
From outside I felt it became more difficult against 10 men because suddenly they dropped 10 yards and got everybody in front of their box. We were not so much anymore under the threat of conceding a goal but it looked difficult to create chances.

on Theo Walcott's late chance...
I was disappointed because I thought he was through but when I watched it again I saw that he had not so much time. But he missed contact with the ball.

on whether he thought a goal was coming...
No, no, but what I knew was that we would continue to go. But I was not certain we would score in the final minute of the game.

on what a draw would have done for Arsenal's title hopes...
Finished. You know if you're five points behind Chelsea with five games to go, you can forget it. But with three points it's feasible because we have a difficult programme but they have a difficult programme as well.

on giving themselves hope for Barcelona...
I don't deny it will be a difficult task. We have to raise above the impression Barcelona left on us in the first part of the match, to have a game plan and stick to it. I believe we have to be audacious and not hide. I do not deny in the first part of the game that Barcelona were over-dominant, but if you look at the chances we created, we had some good ones.

on Nicklas Bendtner's impact...
Bendtner is a player who can take critics. He responds well to it and has that strength. I believe he is improving, which is not unusual for a young player at 22. There is still room for improvement, but he is becoming more of a team player and is working hard. It is all positive.

on Walcott drifting in and out of the game...
It is difficult physically to run at the pace of a 100m runner and give always the right ball at that pace.
Also, it is difficult for a player to make 100m races 50 times. He is not a player who makes a burst of just five yards, he is a player who every time runs 30 or 40 metres, that takes a lot out of you, and when it comes to the situation when you have to cross the ball, he already has a big effort behind him. I do not know yet if he will start against Barcelona, because I have to study what I have to do. I have tomorrow and Monday, so I will have to see.

on whether 86 points will be enough for the title...
I believe so, that’s the only chance we have. I calculated how many games we have to play and how far we can go if we win all our games, 86, so I decided that 86 will do it!

on Karl Henry's sending off...
I must say I don’t believe he went to hurt the player. It was full power but I didn’t see any malicious intent. If he was sent off it’s just for a violent tackle.

on the investigation into Gallas' injury...
They make a story of it in France. It is now a situation where a club is not even any more in a situation when it can decide when it plays its players. They have the right to pay the players, but not when to play them. What I don’t understand, for example, I don’t disagree that I took a gamble on Gallas. But the player declares himself fit, the medical staff declared him fit, the rehabilitation centre declared him fit, but I still cannot play him because maybe France needs him in the summer in the World Cup. During which we pay him as well. You have to leave some freedom to the club to decide when they play their players.

I want the players to do well for the national team as well but the national teams have to accept as well that we lose the players like Robin van Persie for the whole season, when he goes there for what? To play against Italy in Bari for a friendly when the stadium is half empty. And we lose him for the whole season. We pay him the whole season. They decided to play him. So when we play at home against Barcelona in the Quarter Final of the Champions League, we are still ostracised because we play a player who declares himself fit. That’s a bit too much.
