Arsenal defeated Wigan Athletic today at the DW Stadium 1-nil thanks to a penalty kick taken by Mikel Arteta. The Spaniard’s spot kick looked to be all the Gunners needed for a victory, but Wigan never gave up.
The home team had a few great opportunities in the last 10 minutes, but could not prevail. Wigan fall to the relegation zone, giving manager Roberto Martinez much to think about.
It’s early in the weekend, but at the finish of this match, Arsenal were in third place. Today’s win, the third in three league games for the club, has quelled the questioning of Arsene Wenger’s judgement and management, at least for now. COYG!
