Arsenal dramatically fended off Wigan to secure a place in the FA Cup Final and Per Mertesacker really spared Wenger’s blushes when he equalised right at the very death.

Wenger has come under fire from his own supporters in recent times after heavy away defeats against Everton, Man City and Liverpool but there looks to be a light at the end of the tunnel.

Mesut Ozil provided an initial optimism to Arsenal’s season when he signed for £42 million but now the Gunners could finally have style and substance.

Arsenal are now heavy favourites to win the FA Cup after their penalty shootout win and this could very inspire them to pip Everton to the post in their bid for the final Champions League spot.

1. Arsenal have a fighting spirit within their dressing room and a never say die attitude. Per Mertesacker embodies this.




3. Arsenal showed great nerve to win a penalty shootout and this will instil belief in the side for this season and beyond. It will bring back a winning mentality to the dressing room.
