Soccer – Gunners reaction needed warns Wenger

Arsenal, who are now 16/1 with bet365 to win the Premier League title this season, must show greater mental strength boss Arsene Wenger has told his players. The Frenchman was speaking after seeing his side lose 2-1 at home to Watford on Tuesday evening, a result which left them nine points adrift of leaders Chelsea, who were held to a 1-1 draw at Liverpool. A clearly frustrated Wenger, who had to watch the game from the stand, said: "Did we think subconsciously that we could just turn up and it will work? I don't know. "We were not mentally prepared, we were not mentally ready to deal with these duels that we usually do. "We are at home and we have a great opportunity, of course it's frustrating and we have to learn from that, respond quickly and in a very convincing way."
