Arsenal v Wigan Recommended Bet: The Gunners still could yet claim a third place finish in the league, but would need to claim maximum points from their two remaining fixtures and have Chelsea drop points in their last game. All Arsenal can control now is their own wins, and if they keep winning they will be in the Champions League next season. That is all Arsene Wenger’s men can focus on. This could be a comfortable home match in which to get three precious points on the board in as well. The Gunners are unbeaten in their last eight matches in the Premier League now, winning six of those. There has only been one defeat in the last fourteen for them, so they are in the form to deliver. Defensively they have kept three clean sheets in the last four Premier League League matches, but have only scored three goals themselves in that run.
It was just a 1-0 win at the DW Stadium for the Gunners earlier in the season too, a penalty from Mikel Arteta sealing the points. Arsenal have posted a W10 D5 L3 record at home this season, and have scored there at a rate of 2.4 goals per game. That is why they are going as favourite, and their home form has seen them go eight matches at the Emirates without a loss. They have proven to be strong finishers this season, scoring 18 goals and conceding just two in the final fifteen minutes of play all season. The Gunners have drawn their last two home games though with three of their last four EPL matches going under 1.5 goals. So is there a window for Wigan? This is a tough game to play after the emotional FA Cup win at Wembley on the weekend. Interestingly, in their 34th match of last season, Wigan went to Arsenal and won (their only away win at the Gunners in the top flight) which helped them pull off their great survival act.
The Latics are struggling having taken just five points away from their last six games in the Premier League. There are only three teams who have taken fewer points in that same period. Wigan have won just one of their last four away games in the Premier League, and have, overall this season on the road, posted a W5 D3 L10 record. The Latics have scored two or more goals in each of their last three Premier League fixtures, but there have just been signs that their survival act has been running out of steam a little bit. Will they become the first ever side to win the FA Cup and get relegated from the Premier League in the same season?
The odds are really against Wigan in this one, given Arsenal's good home form. Wigan have to keep things tight early on, but Arsenal should have enough to edge this. A Draw/Arsenal Half Time/Full Time bet is trading at a decent price of 3/1 at online bookmaker Bet365.
