Match Commentary

- Thanks for joining us and stick with ESPN FC for the report and post-match reaction.
- For Arsenal, it's another three points and keeps the momentum going after the victory over Reading. Walcott failed to shine throughout much of the match as the central striker, but he earned the penalty that decided the game.
- Arsenal secure a hard-fought victory. Wigan will rue missed chances - particularly Kone's one-on-one effort in the first half - but the hosts can be proud of their efforts given the injury problems that have beset them.
