A confidence boosting victory at the Madejski Stadium on Monday night not only lifted the spirits of the Arsenal players, but it also helped give Arsene Wenger some belief. I say belief because of the struggles his team has faced, but I am not confident that Le Prof ever thought his job was in any doubt. For him to actually be sacked, I think it would take Arsenal getting relegated to be honest.
Five goals against Reading will have the Arsenal fans expecting another solid match at the DW Stadium against a Wigan side who is struggling. The Latics have only four victories all season and are sitting in the 18th spot of the Premier League standings.
What is difficult to understand is how Roberto Martinez somehow manages to keep his job every season, considering the struggles Wigan has every season. Yes, they manage to stay in the Premier League, but since Martinez has been with Wigan, his winning percent is 27%. (40-40-67)
