The Gunners head to the Amex Community Stadium on the back of a resounding 5-1 victory over West Ham which kickstarted their bid to break back into the top four.
However, after crashing out of the Capital One Cup at Bradford, Wenger knows full well the added importance of keeping alive the most likely hope of ending an eight-year trophy drought.
"We are looking for consistency because we know that will be the key for us to be successful until the end of the season," he said.
"It is a possibility of course for a trophy and we do not want to neglect that. Let's be a bit realistic and pragmatic and go game to game, but I feel there is a potential in our team. Hopefully that will come out from now on until the end of the season."
Wenger added: "Let's just continue to play and not worry too much about who we play, but focus on how we can repeat the quality performances."
Brighton have continued to improve under the guidance of Gus Poyet, with the Uruguayan both masterminding a third-round defeat of Newcastle and guiding his side to the fringes of the npower Championship play-offs. Wenger is not expecting their trip to the south coast to be an easy ride.
"Poyet has done very well because he got them promotion and in a position where they can challenge for the play offs," Wenger said.
"I have seen the game against Newcastle. They played a Premier League game.
"Brighton play out from the back, have a lot of possession and a big South American influence with their manager, the players they have, and the way they play, so you know you face a typical away game in the Premier League."
