Wigan's Jordi Gomez (M) celebrates after scoring his side's second goal
An early double from Franco di Santo and Jordi Gomez helped Wigan ease their relegation worries with their first-ever points at Arsenal, reports the BBC.
Di Santo finished off a break and Gomez tapped in to give the Latics the lead after seven minutes.
Thomas Vermaelen's header halved the deficit midway through the opening period.
But Arsenal could not find another and wasted the chance to move eight points clear in third.
Wigan’s win comes on the heels of their stunning mid-week 1-0 victory over champions, Manchester United.
