    Roberto Martinez's Wanderers have scraped their way out of the relegation zone with an improbable 1-0 win over United yesterday. They visit The Grove Monday intent on getting points out of the game, although they have a much more important fixture coming up afterwards against Fulham, who sit two points behind them in 18th place. Arsenal will again be without defender Laurent Koscielny, serving the second of a two-match suspension from cumulation of yellow cards.

    Still waiting on line-ups but it seems Gibbs is 50-50 and Gervinho is more likely to play than not.

    After bossing the game for the following ten minutes, Arsenal produce a header goal from The Verminator.

    Wow, Djourou almost tied it with a volley. Read that sentence again!

    Wigan are wasting time. They aren't really attacking. They mess about with the ball until they turn it over. Now Victor Moses is having a nap at midfield.

    2-1 at the half

    Doesn't feel like we're out of it, especially with Wigan deciding to put ten men behind the ball.
