Arsene Wenger says that Arsenal need to handle the pressure better in order to prevent defeats against the likes of Manchester City.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has called on his team to handle the pressure during tough fixtures in their campaign.

The Gunners, who have not won a trophy for eight years, stumbled to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City on Sunday and the loss placed them six points adrift of fourth place in the table.

"I have said so many times that I want [the team] to be rewarded," The Express quotes Wenger as saying.

"But we have to deal with the pressure a little better and not transform that desire into tension. The tension can transform you a little bit. I felt that's what happened against City."

Arsenal switch their focus to the FA Cup this evening when they take on Swansea City in a third-round replay.
