Five games without a win, the English Premier League title chase in ruins, Arsenal will look to bring those smiles back with a victory over Hull City at the KC Stadium in the FA Cup fifth round replay.
The Gunners have been awful since picking up that dramatic last-second win over Leicester City, with defeats to Barcelona, Manchester United and Swansea City after that, pretty much, putting them out of contention in two competitions.
Arsenal lie eight points behind Leicester City in the Premier League, and with just nine games to go in the season, only Tottenham look capable of catching Claudio Ranieri's men. While a stunning comeback cannot be ruled out, the Gunners look done in the Champions League as well, after conceding two late goals in the first leg against Barcelona.
So, all that remains is the FA Cup, the title they have won for the last two seasons. Arsenal were pretty poor in front of goal in the match at the Emirates, with the game ending 0-0 leading to a replay that neither team wanted.
It took a while for the FA to find a date for this match, and the last thing Wenger will want to do is see his team's winless run extend to six matches.
"If we were able to do it again, it would be absolutely fantastic," Wenger told the club's official website when asked about Arsenal making it a hat-trick of FA Cup titles. "There's no country where the national cup is bigger.
"I personally rate highly the FA Cup. I think it's a fantastic, prestigious competition. I believe it is treated like that because when I listen to people, should we lose a game in the FA Cup, it would be a disaster.
"You cannot say on one side it's undervalued, and on the other side if we lose, it's a disaster. We won the FA Cup twice in the last two years. We will try to do our best again in this competition."
To win it, they will have to get past Hull City, who have other more important concerns than moving on in the FA Cup. Steve Bruce's men are very much in the race for automatic promotion to the Premier League, and that, naturally, will be the club's focus.
That, of course, doesn't mean Hull City will gift a victory to Arsenal, who as they showed against Swansea City, currently find it difficult even to beat a weakened side.
Wenger's team, though, will take a bit of confidence from the hard-fought 2-2 draw against Tottenham Saturday, when Alexis Sanchez scored a vital equaliser despite being down to ten men.
