Bendtner: Arsenal deserved three points against Wolves

Nicklas Bendtner insists Arsenal deserved their late win at Wolves.

Bendtner is becoming a dab hand at popping up with stoppage-time winners - he did the same at Hull last month - and he praised his team-mates for persisting with their brand of passing football as they tried to break down a stubborn Wolves defence.

"We knew Chelsea had won 2-1 [to go six points clear of Arsenal]. But we kept composed to be honest and kept trying to pass the ball around," Bendtner told arsenal.com.

"We didn't hoof the ball or anything. Wolves like to take three minutes every time they have a throw in and three minutes every time they have a goal kick.

"It was very frustrating when you are trying to play football. I don't know if it was a tactic. But we got what we deserved in the end [because] there was still a lot of time to be added on.

"They wasted a lot of time and never really had any chances to have a go at us. We kept creating chance after chance and got what we deserved in the end, which was a victory."
