Wigans warriors face Arsenal in relegation/top 4 £80m shootout.

Posted on May 12, 2013 by Tony

On Tuesday Wigan travel to the Emirates to face Arsenal in what will ultimately be a fixture that will go a long way to deciding the final outcome of the league table and with it the final relegation and Champions League issue, it is suggested that relegation from the Premiership will cost Wigan upwards of £40m and should Arsenal fail to secure a Champions League place they will also lose a similar sum.

Only a win for Wigan will do as a draw will certainly not be enough because of their awful goal difference, a defeat and they are relegated. Wigan showed on Saturday in the FA Cup final against Manchester City that they can handle pressure and from a Tottenham point of view it is hoped that they can take the confidence that they showed  and have earned from victory into this all important fixture. Roberto Martinez has shown that he can pick a team for the big occasion and there will be none bigger than for this must win game. He has a number of players now beginning to show their real worth and hopefully, from a selfish point of view, every Tottenham supporter will be willing them on to save their Premiership status or at least give themselves a realistic chance of survival.

This weekends results have ensured that whatever happens Tottenham and Arsenal will both go into their last fixture each needing to win, a Wigan win on Tuesday will leave the final relegation position unresolved and will be between Wigan, Villa and Sunderland, which  ensures a dangerous Sunderland in their last fixture. A draw on Tuesday would be great for Tottenham and take relegation issues to the final fixture when only an 11 goal swing would save Wigan.

Roll on Tuesday and the first instalment of “squeaky bum time”
