Wenger on...missing out on the final
"It is a disappointment because we tried to win the game and we did win the game. You forget that. But, it's not so much that we don't go to the Final. It's just the fact that we were beaten a little bit in the same way as at Everton. A ball over the top. To let in a goal with one minute to go, that's a little bit naive with the experience we have. "

Wenger on...conceding the late goal
"Yes, I was disappointed with the way we conceded the goal. It was one minute to go, goal kick to us and we are out of the competition. The way we conceded the goal was naive."

Wenger on...Arsenal's performance
"Wigan played very well. They kept going for 90 minutes and are a good side. We had six one-v-ones with the keeper in that game. So you cannot say we did not play well. We missed a penalty as well and won 2-1. You cannot complain with the spirit. Where  you can complain is the goal we conceded."

Wenger on...Henry not taking the penalty
"I don't why. He is No 1 on the list, Lauren is No 2 and Reyes is No 3. Lauren is a bit injured already so maybe it was down to that."

Wenger on...Diaby's first half substitution
"I felt he suffered a little bit with the pace of the game, that's why I took him off."
