London: Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has encouraged his players to carry the momentum from their run to the FA Cup final into the battle for a Premier League top-four finish.

The Frenchman saw his side beat holders Wigan Athletic 4-2 on penalties after a 1-1 draw in the semi-finals at Wembley on Saturday, taking them into an FA Cup final for the first time since they last won a trophy in 2005.

It was a day of mixed fortunes for the London club, however, as Everton's 1-0 victory at Sunderland in the league took them into the Champions League places at Arsenal's expense.

With five games to play, Everton lead Arsenal by two points, but now that his side have an FA Cup final date with either Hull City or Sheffield United to look forward to, Wenger wants them to go for broke in the league.
