Wigan shock misfiring Gunners

Published Add your comment

Wigan pulled off a shock 2-1 win at Arsenal to boost their Barclays Premier League survival hopes.

Franco Di Santo fired the Latics - who last week beat leaders Manchester United - ahead on the break after seven minutes, before Jordi Gomez doubled their lead inside 90 seconds.

Thomas Vermaelen reduced the deficit with a bullet header after 20 minutes, but the second-half onslaught from the shell-shocked Gunners never came as the Latics moved five points clear of the relegation zone.
