The Gunners are currently in fifth place with 67 points, two less than London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in fourth place, but having played one less match.

The Gunners edged struggling Queens Park Rangers 1-0 in their last league encounter and will look for another against another relegation-threatened side.

“We are on a remarkable run and have been hugely consistent and our destiny is in our hands,” said coach Arsene Wenger.

“Two months ago our destiny was not in our own hands; today it is. So let’s finish the job.”

Wigan are currently are currently in 18th place with 35 points and desperate for a win to give themselves a chance of fighting for their survival in the last fixture of the season against Aston Villa.

The Latics went down 3-2 to Swansea City in their last league outing but they have already proven that they can punch above their weight at this age of the season, which was evident when they defeated Manchester City 1-0 to lift the FA Cup on Saturday.

“It was a moment that changed the perception of our club for millions of people outside the UK and that is really positive but it doesn’t need to affect the next two matches,” said coach Roberto Martinez.

“We need to win our last two games. We need to treat this like two more FA Cup finals.”
