Arsenal will look to continue their recent good run against struggling Aston Villa in the English Premier League late game Saturday.
The Gunners have posted two impressive victories over Tottenham Hotspur and Montpellier in the Premier League and Champions League respectively and Wenger will ask for more of the same against Villa, who are third bottom after their 5-0 defeat to City last week.
Jack Wilshere scored his first goal for the club, since returning from 17 months out due to injury, against Montpellier in a 2-0 win, and manager Arsene Wenger expects the midfielder to get plenty more.

"It will get better," Wenger said. "In his first season he became obsessed, well that is a big word, maybe a little bit disappointed that he didn't score more goals.
"He focuses on what is important for a midfielder -- defend well, make the team play well and then he will get on the end of things. He showed that last night."
"I always said if we have Jack back in January, we [would] have done well. He has done much better than expected.
"What is good to see as well, is that he can absorb games now. I don't forget that he has been out for 17 months and that we still have to be a bit sensible."
Arsenal will be without Theo Walcott and Andre Santos, although the former is expected to return for Wednesday's game against Everton. "Santos is out for 10 days with an abdominal strain," Wenger said. "Oxlade-Chamberlain looks alright. Theo is out for Saturday, but has a chance for Wednesday at Everton."
Tomas Rosicky, who hasn't played at all this season, has returned to training, although he will be unavailable against Villa.
Aston Villa will welcome back Darren Bent, after the striker missed Villa's last three games through injury, although he is not expected to feature in the starting lineup. Eric Lichaj is also expected to return, but Joe Bennett, Charles N'Zogbia, Chris Herd, Richard Dunne are ruled out.
"Darren trained this week and is back, which is pleasing," manager Paul Lambert said. "The players against City and United couldn't give any more. There wasn't too much wrong with that side but I have got options there if I want.
"Darren's been fine around the place and there has never been a problem."
Expected lineups: Aston Villa: Guzan; Stevens, Vlaar, Clark, Lowton; Bannan, Westwood; Agbonlahor, Ireland, Weimann; Benteke.
Arsenal: Szczesny; Gibbs, Vermaelen, Koscielny, Sagna; Arteta, Wilshere, Cazorla; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Podolski, Giroud.
Prediction: 2-0 to Arsenal
