Premier League games ago.

The latest league win for Arsenal takes some pressure away from their Capital One Cup exit to Bradford City in the Quarter Finals. If they fail to win here though that misery will be all come back and be aimed at the door of Arsene Wenger.

The Gunners travel to the North West having only won two of their last seven league outings, but their win at the Madjeski has added a renewed vigour to the side. Santi Cazorla managed to bag a hatrick with Lukas Podolski also wreaking havoc and he will be looking to be getting in amongst the goals this time round as well.

Arsenal should have Olivier Giroud back to full fitness with French International making a Cameo appearance midweek. It is expected that the Gunners will prefer Theo Walcott up front again though after his latest striking performance. They are still missing Andre Santos (stomach) and Diaby (thigh).

Wigan are still suffering a significant shortage in the defensive area with their main centre back pairing out Caldwell, Ramis (both hamstring. Antonio Alcaraz still hasn’t recovered from a groin injury.  James McCarthy recent picked up an ankle knock and looks highly unlikely to shake that off for this fixture. These injuries just add to the long term absentees Ben Watson, Albert Crusat and Ryo Miyaichi out of contention.

The away side won both fixtures last season – Arsenal 4-0 at the DW Stadium and Wigan 2-1 at the Emirates. Arsenal would definitely very much favour that trend to continue this weekend.

Prediction: Wigan 1-2 Arsenal
