Arsenal can't be bullied - Wenger

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has warned the Premiership his young team can no longer be "bullied" out of games.

After victory over Bolton Wanderers on Saturday, Wenger declared: "The time when we could be bullied is certainly over.

"We can respond when it happens now and on that front we are much stronger than we were.

"I feel the players, especially here where the pitch is so good, can escape the bad tackles and keep the ball moving quickly.

"We have shown that we have strength and this was another step for us.

"We know we dealt with the big games very well last season so we should be confident that we can do that again.

"When there is consistency, there is always quality. How far can we go? I don't know. But I have great belief we can go a long way."

Wenger added: "The Liverpool game will be big for us and then we have Manchester United. If we get over those two hurdles, we will be in a very good position."
