I suppose Arsenal facing someone like Man Utd or even Liverpool would make me more confident of seeing Arsenal drop points, but a Wigan side fighting for their lives isn't the worst option.
Like Spurs, it could all be out of Roberto Martinez's boys hands, should their rivals secure the right results, and even in winning a historical FA Cup, I would rather see them walk out at the Emirates with fresh legs to go with their euphoric minds, but I hope that nothing clears the head or puts energy in tired legs than a game that may define their Premiership futures and perhaps the future of the team.
You can easily see this Wigan side brake up, should they suffer relegation. Martinez, could well be tempted to move on, with Everton being an obvious option, whilst half the team will want to carry on with Premiership careers and not fancy battling in the Championship. Suddenly with half a team gone, as well as the manager, you start to fear that Wigan would have a very long road back, and for a club with a fan base that probably is mid0table in the Championship, that may well be their longer term level, should they get relegated.
It remains a bit go a mystery why Wigan can't play better earlier in the season or at least secure more positive results. We all know they play good football and appear well organised, though I accept that injuries have hampered them for much of the season, particularly in defence, but you would always assume with a stretched squad, you would have tired legs late in the season. So why do they finish strongly?
Tomorrow night, I will be a Wigan fan! They know they must win, which might actually count against them, as I felt confident they could frustrate Arsenal, who themselves will be nervous, but do they have the quality, energy and firepower to get the win? lets hope so, because after Alan Pardew's comments after their win over QPR, you wouldn't back them putting up a fight next weekend…
