After what happened tonight this game will be a test in terms of attitude. Being over confident against a team fighting against relegation could end up dangerous. With United playing in the FA Cup this weekend, stretching the lead to four points will put much needed pressure on them to succeed. I'm hoping we get to see van Persie in some sort of action as well in this game. Having him back will add another dimension to the attack that has been missing this season.

We're on TV. :thmbup:

The lads are on a high after knocking Milan out so I am looking forward to improving our goal difference.

Unfortunately we're not going to see excellent, flowing football as Wigan's pitch is worse than what you'd see at Conference level. It will be scrappy but I hope for a 0-2.

We shouldn't rush Toure or RVP back for this game.

I'd rather we played Walcott against Wigan, he needs games against teams like this.

Not only Walcott. I thought we could also have Denilson wide right interchanging with Cesc with Hleb on the left. I am certain denilson on the wing wouldnt do worse than Diaby. Late on, we can pull out Flamini and Cesc whilst bringing in Gilberto and Bendtner.

Could be a scrappy game again (Birmingham like..) But I don't think Wigan have been playing as well lately. We really need to win this one as our Prem form has not been too good of late hopefully the win against Milan will lift the boys too.

If Van Persie is medically ready at 100%, he will start. Why not? Get his fitness up, you're not going to get easier games than Wigan (on paper, with all due respect).

my worry is that wigan will probably play physical, van persie should be eased into games, i think a start will be far too much for him at this point, i dont think he is ever 100% medically fit though!! when are the quarter final matches?

QF 1st leg is in the first week of April.

RVP doesn't have to complete 90 minutes, but he should aim for 60 minutes here. As long as it isn't a risk medically, let's push him as far as we can. In a few weeks we go to Chelsea and then have the QFs of the CL against a very tough team, so we need RVP match fit ASAP. The only way he is going to achieve that is to play matches.

RVP needs some playing time asap I think. No use waitng and then throwing him into the bigger games and expect him to perform when obviously he won't be match fit. Maybe not start him against Wigan but give him time off the bench.

ARSENAL VERDICT: There can be little doubt that they are beginning to crack and you wonder whether the walls will tumble around Arsene Wenger if his side go out of the Champions League at the San Siro on Tuesday night. They are hanging on admirably, but look less like potential Premier League winners than ever. Verdict on ESPN after the Villa match from someone who calls himself The Insider. Cannot wait for us to shut up starting this weekend

RvP must play, how we could have done with him last night getting into so many shooting positions, the game would have been over by half time.
