As Wigan pulled off another shock in the FA Cup, Arsenal face the prospect of playing the Latics at Wembley in the semi-final and then if they progress face a final against Sheffield United or Hull City Tigers.
And that situation makes Arsenal the firm favourites to win the competition, both with the experts and the bookies.
But obviously, it’s not that black and white.
Wigan have been awesome in the FA Cup over the last couple of seasons – beating Manchester City in last years FA Cup final and then beating the same team in their own back yard this season. This is a side that really is a giant killer and more worryingly, they know how to play against the top sides.
Their place in the FA Cup semi-finals is no fluke, so Arsenal will have to be very wary of the threat they can give us.
And don’t forget, in the cups we have lost to poorer teams than Wigan. We’ve lost to Bradford City, Blackburn Rovers and of course the 2011 final to Birmingham City. So unless we’re at 110% Wigan will take advantage.
But would you be happy if Arsenal won the FA Cup? Sounds like a stupid question, but there are some fans that think we should be winning more this season. Anyway, cast your vote below and leave your thoughts in the comments section:
