Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has warned his players not to assume victory will come easy against Wigan on Saturday.

Roberto Martinez's men may sit one place off bottom spot having lost eight successive matches earlier this season, but last weekend's win at Sunderland has lifted morale. The Gunners head to the DW Stadium having climbed the Barclays Premier League table on the back of five wins and a draw, but Wenger insists victory cannot be taken for granted.

"They are not [formalities]. The last couple of seasons, they have come back twice, where Wigan showed spirit and quality," said Wenger. "Their pitch has always been quite difficult in winter, but let's hope this time it will be all right."
