Kick Off : 13:30 BST
Venue : DW Stadium, Wigan
The English Premier League game between Wigan Athletic and Arsenal will be played at the DW Stadium on Sunday 18th April 2010, kick-off set for 1:30 PM. Wigan are slowly inching their way towards relegation safety, though Spanish boss Roberto Martinez may consider Wednesday’s match goalless draw with Portsmouth as two points lost. The Latics currently may be in poor form in the EPL but interestingly enough they have already beaten traditional powers Chelsea and Liverpool on their home turf this season.
The Latics side will also be able draw confidence from the confirmed absence of injured pair of first-choice Arsenal defenders backs Thomas Vermaelen and William Gallas. The numbers show that the Latics have only managed to win two of their last 14 English Premier League games. Roberto Martinez’s men have also failed to score more than one goal in any of their last 14 EPL fixtures.
The Latics report that they will be without Gary Caldwell for the visit of Arsenal, the defender is completing a three-game ban. Midfielder Hendry Thomas is doubtful.
Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen will miss the rest of the season after suffering a calf injury. Arshavin, Gallas, Djourou, Song, Fabregas, Ramsey and Gibbs are out.
The fans of Arsenal know that Arsene Wenger’s lads have been written off as title contenders on countless occasions by the media and neutral observers this season but it is true that Wednesday’s defeat playing at Tottenham indeed appears to be the final nail in the coffin this time. Even Manager Wenger clearly admits that their Premier League valiant challenge to the summit is all but over and most of the pundits agree with this opinion, making the Gunners firm candidates to end the current season campaign empty handed.
The Gunners did stage a sort of a late rally at the game played in White Hart Lane, especially following Robin van Persie’s long waited second-half introduction after recovering from his injury, but even that was not enough to finally snatch a point. The Guners feel that Things this season could have turned out very differently had the Dutchman stayed physically fit this season. But the record shows that Arsenal are now six points adrift with four games remaining and by the time they arrive at Wigan they will be looking to win one single game at the time and hope for a small miracle.
My prediction: 1-2
