Jack Wilshere hailed Arsenal's fighting spirit after the Gunners ground out a 1-0 victory over Wigan that lifted them back into the Champions League places.

The Gunners had been at their free-flowing best in thumping Reading 5-2 on Monday but had to show a different side to their game in Saturday's win at the DW Stadium and made it three Barclays Premier League wins in a row thanks to Mikel Arteta's disputed penalty.

Arsene Wenger's side have been criticised in the past for slipping up in such games, and Wilshere said: "We got the points and we showed a different side to our game."
