Wenger wants his imperfect side to show improvement in FA Cup clash

Arsene Wenger has called on his players to produce a big performance to ensure Arsenal reaches the FA Cup final.

The Gunners have been in poor form in the league, with just one win from their previous six games.

But in the FA Cup, Wenger's men have beaten Tottenham, Coventry City, Liverpool and Everton to progress to the last four of the oldest cup competition in world football.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's semi final, where Arsenal will face Sky Bet Championship side Wigan, Wenger said:
"When results are not (going) as well, you can always think you can improve. 
"There is no perfect team and we will always try to improve our squad and our team. 
"This season we lost key players at big important moments of the season, but we have to just to focus on finishing as well as we can. 
"We are in a position where we can still do very well until the end of the season, that is what we want. 
"It is not about next season, it is about this season."
The north Londoners have five remaining league games this season in which to secure fourth place and are ahead of closest rivals Everton by a point, although Roberto Martinez's side have a game in hand.
