Arsène Wenger says this weekend's top-of-the-table clash between Chelsea and Manchester is an ideal opportunity for Arsenal to make up ground on at least one of their title rivals.

The Gunners are five points behind Chelsea and two behind United having played one game less than the Premier League's first and second-placed clubs.

Arsenal travel to Wolves on Saturday evening and a win there would guarantee that Wenger's side will gain ground on at least one of the sides above them.

The Frenchman is keen for his side to grab the opportunity presented to them but insists Arsenal's game is the most important to him.

"I'm focused on us winning the [Wolves] game, after I take any result [at Stamford Bridge]," he said.

"For us you know that a successful season is to grab opportunities when you have them and we have a good opportunity to gain some ground on one of the two teams.

"That is what we will try to do."
