Wigan v Arsenal FA Cup semi-final: 10 reasons why Arsenal are right to fear an upset at Wembley
The Gunners should be overwhelming favourites to reach the final, but much is conspiring against them
Arsenal are the overwhelming favourites to win this year's FA Cup - but there is a severe lack of confidence emitting from the Emirates.
They face Championship side Wigan Athletic in the semi-finals on Saturday with the winner of the tie going on to play either Hull City or Sheffield United. There is little doubt Arsenal have the best pedigree from among those teams.
Yet the task may not be as simple as it seems.
While Uwe Rosler's side are outsiders to progress to a second consecutive final, their success last year and run to the semi-finals this time around is definitely cause for Latics fans to be optimistic.
So here, we take a look at reasons why Arsenal are right to be fearful of an upset and on the flip side, why Wigan can pull off yet another surprise this weekend.
So do you think Wigan can beat Arsenal this weekend? Let us know in the comments below...
