Arsenal now can put all its attention into winning the Premier League after bowing out of the Champions League at the hands of Bayern Munich.

There wasn't much good to come out of Arsenal's 1-0 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals, but I may have found something.

Call it clutching at straws, but the Gunners' loss in Europe now means that the focus is now squarely on the Premier League. Currently sitting second behind Manchester City, Arsenal is well within striking distance of Pep Guardiola's side with six games remaining.

But in an odd twist, both City and Liverpool (3rd) also saw their respective European campaign's end this week. That leaves the three title hopefuls free to put all their focus into winning their remaining games with no outside distractions.

For Arsenal, a tricky away trip to face 11th-placed Wolves is next up. Coming off consecutive losses in which the Gunners looked to have been running on fumes, it doesn't get any easier for Mikel Arteta's side.

While Wolves have only won just one of their last five, the Gunners in their current form appear to be there for the taking.

Arsenal did beat Wolves 2-1 back in December after two quick-fire goals (Saka 6', Odegaard 13') in the first 15 minutes sent them on their way. A late Matheus Cunha goal (86') made for a nervous end, but the Gunners held on for the win.

More of the same is needed now. With the stinging losses to Aston Villa and Bayern hopefully fueling this title run-in, the road to claiming title glory begins now.

Wolves won't be easybeats, and given Arsenal's current form and the fact that they looked out of gas recently, means that this showdown could end the title dream altogether.

Arteta's Arsenal failed horribly down the stretch last season, and we are seeing signs of it happening again. With Wolves on the horizon, the chance to stop the skid has arrived.

Buckle up.
