Arsene Wenger has called on his Arsenal side to 'finish the job'' and take a huge stride towards Champions League qualification with a win over Wigan on Tuesday evening.

The Gunners are two points behind rivals Tottenham in the race for a top-four spot but have a game in hand against Wigan at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow.

Victory against the relegation-threatened FA Cup winners would mean that Wenger's side have their destiny in their own hands going into the final game of the season.

Wigan are scrapping for their lives and know that anything other than a win against Arsenal would put an end to their hopes of survival, just days after beating Manchester City in the FA Cup final.

A draw or a defeat for Arsenal would hand the initiative to Spurs -  something Wenger is desperately keen to avoid having seen his side recover from being seven points behind their rivals following defeat at White Hart Lane in March.

"Both teams have to go for it, it's a huge game for both of us," he said ahead of tomorrow's game.

"We have been very consistent, we've been on a remarkable run and our destiny is in our hands.

"Two months ago our destiny was not in our own hands. Today it is. So let's finish the job."

Wenger also confirmed in his press conference this morning that both Lukasz Fabianski and Kieran Gibbs are fit again and are in contention to start.
