Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insists that his side have to produce a better display against Everton than their performance at Goodison Park last season.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is determined to avenge his side's poor showing from their defeat to Everton last season when the teams face off at Goodison Park on Saturday.

The Gunners were hammered 3-0 by Roberto Martinez's side, and the Frenchman has admitted that his side were "bullied" off the park by the Toffees despite fielding a strong team.

He told reporters: "Everton was a low point last season, yes. In the quality of our performance, and even more than that in mental resistance, the mental steel on the day.

"That was one of our low points. We played with [Lukas] Podolski, [Olivier] Giroud, and we were a bit bullied. At the back we had [Per] Mertesacker, [Thomas] Vermaelen, [Nacho] Monreal and [Bacary] Sagna. It was an off day, as well physically.

"We have a good opportunity to show on Saturday that we have moved forward and that we are stronger than last year."
