Wenger concerned over Arsenal mental fragility

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has concerns over his players' mental state after recent defeats.

Wenger admits he's more worried about his squad's self-belief than any looming game.

"Of course, you are not feeling great if you can't win, but we can stay solid or crack under the pressure," Wenger said in an interview with Eurosport.

"If you want to know, I am still solid, but I can't tell you that I feel great right now because my job is about winning games and when you lose you will not find a single coach in this world who feels good.

"I am not worried about us potentially coming back against Bayern, I am more worried about consequences that could manifest in the heads of our players.

"You will never know how they can absorb those blows and how the team responds to disappointment. This is the most worrying aspect for me.

"But from the experience of how to handle the end of the season, we know how to deal with that. We have had lots of experience."
