  • It's a win for Arsenal, then, and they're up to third for the time being at least. Wigan remain in the bottom three.

  • Wigan look to fashion one last chance but they're thwarted and as Arsenal move clear the final whistle blows.

    90+4
  • Beausejour whips a cross in from the left which Koscielny half-clears. It breaks back to McArthur but his side-footted effort drifts wide, with Kone just unable to land a foot on it.

    90+3
  • Laurent Koscielny replaces Cazorla as Arsenal look to get the three points locked down.

    90+2
  • Another Gomez shot strikes Gibbs and again the Wigan fans are up claiming for handball. Nothing doing again.

    90+1
  • We're into four minutes of added time with Wigan still pressing.

    90+1
  • Wigan appeal for handball as Gomez's shot strikes Gibbs. Nothing doing. Ball breaks towards Kone but Mertesacker hacks clear.

    90
  • That's Maloney's last act, with Jordi Gomez replacing him.

    89
  • Figueroa whips a cross in but McArthur can't get enough on the header and it dribbles harmlessly wide.

    88
  • Maloney penalised again after fouling Coquelin.

    87
  • Maloney booked for a tackle on Coquelin, who looked to make the most of the contact there it has to be said.

    86
  • Frustration for Wigan as McManaman's ball out to Beausejour down the left is behind the full-back and slides out.

    85
  • The corner from the left goes as far as McManaman beyond the far post and though he thinks he's won a corner off Sagna, the referee is right to award the goal-kick to Arsenal.

    84
  • Corner to Wigan as Ramsey nicks the ball off the toes of Beausejour. Late pressure here - can they find a leveller or are they leaving themselves open to the counter-attack?

    84
  • Gibbs heads the corner as far as Figueroa, but once again another of his ambitious long-range efforts is off target.

    83
  • Stam gets free after springing the offside trap. He opts to cross rather than shoot but Mertesacker has tracked Kone's run superbly and slides it behind for a corner.

    82
  • Figueroa does well to get across and halt Sagna's progress down the right, even earning a free-kick for his troubles.

    81
  • Second change for Arsenal as Francis Coquelin replaces Podolski.

    80
  • McArthur looks to spring Kone over the top but the Arsenal offside trap works well and the flag is rightly up.

    79
  • Stam's final ball lets him down once again as his cross from the right sails out for a throw-in on the far side.
