  • Thank you for your company this evening, I hope you enjoyed the game. Stay on site for all the reaction.

  • It's all over and after eight years in the top-flight, WIgan are relegated. A sad moment for them but a very happy one for Arsenal, who know a win against Newcastle on Sunday will secure a top-four finish.

  • Arteta is replaced by Vermaelen, to allow the club captain to be on the field for the end of Arsenal's last home game of the season.

  • Not to be, and Arsenal counter with pace. Cazorla goes in search of a goal he really deserves, but some good defending from Alcaraz denies him.

  • Di Santo wins a corner to give Wigan a chance for a late consolation.

  • Oxlade-Chamberlain does really well before crossing dangerously for Cazorla, but Boyce manages to get to the ball before the Spaniard to clear.

  • Cazorla takes the corner. It is headed out only for it to be driven back in, but play is stopped by Mike Dean, who awards the defending side a free-kick.

  • Maloney is replaced by Henriquez.

  • Arsenal continue to try and extend their lead, with Oxlade-Chamberlain's skill earning the hosts another corner.

  • Walcott has an effort from the left edge of the box but it is poorly hit and Joel is able to collect.

  • Gibbs threatens on the left and wins a corner off the legs of Boyce.

  • Di Santo turns from his man and hits a fierce strike at goal. The connection is good but it just finds the wrong side of Szczesny's right post.

  • McCarthy slips as he advances towards the Arsenal box. It falls for Watson but he loses out and Arsenal take control of possession.

  • Double change for Arsenal now as they are able to take a breather. Wilshere and Oxlade-Chamberlain coming on for Podolski and Rosicky.

  • Walcott and Ramsey combine in an advanced position, but the latter's touch lets him down and the ball runs out for a goal kick.

  • Corner now for Wigan, as Koscielny deflects Di Santo's cross behind. It is Di Santo who threatens from the corner, but his header goes narrowly over.

  • Maloney tries to square the ball but Koscielny collects and calmy distributes it to his midfield.

  • It is definitely over for Wigan now who have just run out of steam. It's all too easy for the Gunners as Ramsey runs into the box from the left wing, and continues unchallenged to slot home past Joel.

  • Goal - Ramsey seals it!

  • Surely that goal means Wigan will be playing Championship football next season. You never know with the Latics, but it seems like this could be it this time.
