Wenger was quick to play down any talk of Arsenal now being nailed on for a first trophy since 2005.
"The cup is the cup. What we have learned is that the consistency of Wigan shows that they have the quality to deal with the pressure in the cup," he said.
"They created of course a huge surprise so we are warned that only a top level performance will get us through.
"If you want to say that we will be favourites, I agree with you, but being favourites doesn't win you games - performances win you games and that's what we have to focus on."
