Arsenal 3-0 Wigan Athletic – Match Highlights

Robin van Persie scored a hat-trick as Arsenal went second in the Premier League with a comfortable 3-0 victory over Wigan Athletic at the Emirates Stadium.

The Dutch striker opened the scoring after 22 minutes and added a second 13 minutes after the break.

He missed a golden opportunity to record the first League hat-trick of his career when he lifted a 71st minute penalty over the crossbar following a professional foul by Gary Caldwell on Cesc Fabregas that saw the Wigan skipper dismissed.

But he swept home from close range five minutes from time to finally record his treble as the Gunners kept the pressure on Manchester United at the top of the table.

Wigan stay in the relegation zone and only a superb performance from on-loan goalkeeper Ali Al-Habsi prevented Arsene Wenger’s men from running up a cricket score.
