How do the experts see Wigan Athletic’s game against Arsenal, let’s have a look at how the pundits, the prediction league players and bookies see this game going at the weekend….

Mark Lawrenson has gone for a 3-0 Arsenal win at the DW Stadium on Sunday, the BBC pundit currently lies 6th in the Cockney Latic Prediction League. This would get you get 14/1 at Betfair.

He said about his prediction; “I think Arsene Wenger will play Robin van Persie from the start – and, as I’ve said already, the best players have a big effect on the rest of the team. The Dutchman will be like a dog with a new bone, keen to prove his fitness ahead of the World Cup.

This is a tough one for Wigan, but then it was always going to be a hard season for them. If you keep on selling your best players, it will catch up with you eventually. Not only that, but manager Roberto Martinez hasn’t managed in the Premier League before. But they’ll be OK because Burnley and Hull will go down. They will also be stronger for the experience.”

Of the Prediction League users (sponsored by Workit Recruitment) 18% are jointly going for 1-1, 1-3 0r 0-2.
