Mikel Arteta's penalty proved enough for Arsenal to defeat Wigan 1-0 and make it three Barclays Premier League victories in a row for the first time since March.

There was very little between the sides and it was the hosts who had the best chance of the first half but it was wasted by Arouna Kone.

The goal came on the hour mark after Jean Beausejour was deemed to have fouled Theo Walcott, much to the anger of the Wigan fans, and Arteta made no mistake.
