In fact, Arsenal named an unchanged team from the side that thrashed Reading 5-2 on Monday night.

On Arsrnal.com, the club also confirmed that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lukas Podolski and Jack Wilshere all start as well.

Gervinho, Laurent Koscielny and Andrey Arshavin are all amongst the substitutes.

For Wigan, David Jones and Franco Di Santo both return to replace Mauro Boselli who was dropped to the bench, and the injured Adrian Lopez who is out with a hamstring problem he picked up in Norwich.

Also coming in is Shaun Maloney and he replaces Jordi Gomez, who was also dropped to the bench.

Wigan Athletic: Al Habsi, Kone, McCarthy, Jones, Di Santo, Maloney, McArthur, Boyce, Beausejour, Stam, Figueroa.
Subs: Pollitt, Caldwell, Gomez, McManaman, Boselli, Fyvie, Golobart

Arsenal FC: Szczesny, Sagna, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Arteta, Wilshere, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cazorla, Podolski, Walcott.
Subs: Mannone, Jenkinson, Koscielny, Coquelin, Ramsey, Arshavin, Gervinho.
