Wigan v Arsenal

Arsenal make their second journey of the season to the JJB stadium tomorrow night as they face Wigan in the Carling Cup semi final.

Now this competition may not be as saught after as it once was, but it remains the only domestic trophy Arsene Wenger hasn't won.

Wigan, having only just been promoted to the Premiership, will also be desperate to reach the final and compete for the last English trophy to be played for at Cardiff's Millenium Stadium.

Arsene Says

I will rest a few players so we will have quite a young team,

Arsenal Team News:

Arsenal will be without Dutch wonder kid, Robin van Persie after he suffered a slight toe fracture, AW will also be missing Henry (rested) ad Kolo Toure and Emanuelle Eboue who have both departed to the ANC.

Arsenal Squad to face Wigan:

Manuel Almunia
Mart Poom
Kerrea Gilbert
Francesc Fabregas
Johann Djourou
Philippe Senderos
Quincy
Freddie Ljungberg
Alexander Hleb
Sebastian Larsson
Jose Antonio Reyes
Arturo Lupoli
Nicklas Bendtner
Mathieu Flamini
Pascal Cygan
Gilberto

Player to watch: Alexander Hleb

Although he has struggled to find form in the league, the tricky wingman seems to be at home in the cup competitions. Time for his first goal??

Wigan Team News:

With Paul Jewell as manager anything could happen. Any manager who can keep Bradford City in the Premiership will not be adverse to a magic trick or two.

Player to watch: All of 'Em

The Wigan team is big, strong and fast, maybe look out for Camara in particular

Match Prediction:

Wigan 2 - 2 Arsenal

It'll be a very tough game and a draw will be good enough to bring home and then finish them off at Highbury.

Next Fixtures:

Arsenal v Middlesboro
