But, although Milan are in a rut themselves, Arsenal's desperation for a morale-boosting victory was so strong that Wilshere believes they can use take the momentum from the San Siro to ensure Wenger silences the critics.
Before that, Milan face a very hard Serie A trip to Genoa, who already beat Inter a few weeks ago.
"People forget that to get to a cup final in England, you need mental resources and you need mental qualities", said Wenger.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says suffering is all part of being a manager and admits he has had his fair share of late. We must look forward, Arsenal were in great difficulty [they came to the match after 4 defeats], but they have quality, and this is not bought at the supermarket.
"Overall, at some stage you need to respond and to respond together with a good performance". Arsenal lowered the tempo in the second half and we didn't pass it well.
Mark Lawrenson is backing Arsenal to ease to a resounding win against Watford at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon. "That is for us absolutely the most important".

The fire, which had spread to the other companies, has been brought under control and efforts are on to douse it, an officer said. They were later identified as Pintu Gautam, Janu Agaria, and Aloknath Agaria, all aged 30 and residents of Shiv Nagar in Boisar.
Valon Berisha scored twice early in the second half, the first from a penalty, as Salzburg stunned Dortmund, who replied through Andre Schuerrle.
One thing that's certain is that Arsenal's fragile confidence will have been boosted by that win against the Rossoneri, and the visit of Watford will have them licking their lips, because this is generally the kind of game they excel in. I can make that difference.
They will be without injured Alexandre Lacazette and Hector Bellerin against Watford while Sead Kolasinac is a doubt with an ankle problem.
"I am happy with the spirit and response we gave". I want to win, win with style even, so it's very ambitious. "I don't know if we were wrong [in the preparation], we did a workload simulating what we would do in the derby [which was cancelled due to Astori's sudden death]".
"It is an important win of course after we had a nightmare week", the 68-year-old Frenchman told BT Sport. I try to enjoy every game.
"There is a solidarity there and I support the other managers always, we all do that".
