Arsenal v Bolton Wanderers: Arsene Wenger's post match reaction

Arsene Wenger spoke to the media following his sides 4-1 win against Bolton Wanderers.

On the game, the manager said:
"We have had two games, at Blackburn and today, which we certainly would not have taken six points from two years ago.
"The players can handle these situations.
"Overall it was a competitive game where we dominated and created many chances, but when you play against Bolton, as long as you don't kill the game off, they can score - you can dominate 80% of the game and still lose.
"They marked us very tight, which provoked a very physical game, but they also played well.
"Bolton had full commitment and we needed to be patient, to get our technique and passing to prevail."
On our defence he said:
"It was a good test for our two centre-backs, who did very well and I am pleased with the performance of the whole team."
On the red card and Abou Diaby's injury:
"There could have been other red cards.
"You have to see it again because in the heat of the game it is sometimes difficult to judge, but the challenge on Diaby was a bad tackle.
"He is not in a very good shape.
"Diaby cannot move his leg at the moment, so we will see how we get away with it."
On Cesc Fabregas' performance:
"I was always convinced he loved Arsenal as well and that he loves to play football. When he is on the pitch, he enjoys it.
"We play the game he loves to play, the game turns around him as well.
"He grew up in this team, and to make this team win will be a bigger achievement than anything else for Fabregas."
