Barclays Premier League leaders Arsenal dropped two crucial points in the title race as they were held to a frustrating goalless draw by struggling Wigan at the JJB Stadium.

The Gunners failed to create any real clear-cut chances and their best opportunity came after just 42 seconds when striker Emmanuel Adebayor forced goalkeeper Chris Kirkland into a save low on the edge of his area after racing on to a through-ball.

Wigan defended heroically for a point to aid their cause and although the leaders moved two ahead of Manchester United, having played a match more, they missed an opportunity to increase the pressure on their main rivals.
