Arsène Wenger believes that Arsenal’s recent performances can instill a mental toughness into his players.

Late penalties against both Liverpool and Tottenham have cost Arsenal crucial Premier League points leaving Wenger’s players in the firing line.

But the Arsenal manager is hoping that his team will take heart from some good displays to give them the confidence that they can win their remaining five games, starting with Bolton on Sunday.

“It's down to belief,” said Wenger. “Belief is the mother of the feeling and the feeling is the direct consequence of the motivation you put into your next game.

“If your belief is very low, your feeling is very low. What I think we can get from our performances is the belief that we have the quality.”
