Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says his players must be tougher mentally after defeat to Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger says his players must be tougher mentally after defeat to Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup.

Wenger insists his players have the ability, but lack a winner's mentality.

“The players are really hurting but you have to take it on the chin and come back with a strong response. That's all we can do.

"I think we have a great team but Saturday shows that we still have to show more maturity on the mental front. We have to understand what it means to win big games. Blackburn was a big game for me. But it is important that we come back and respond well."
