Ten-man Wigan holds Arsenal to 2-2 draw

Ten-man Wigan holds Arsenal to 2-2 draw

Arsenal had to settle for a 2-2 draw at 10-man Wigan in the Premier League on Wednesday after defender Sebastien Squillaci scored a late own goal.
Wigan was rewarded for some early pressure when Ben Watson converted a penalty in the 18th minute, but Russian playmaker Andrey Arshavin leveled for Arsenal in the 39th with a superb volley and Denmark forward Nicklas Bendtner put the visitors ahead just five minutes later.
Wigan's attempts to salvage a draw suffered a setback in the 78th minute when Charles N'Zogbia was sent off, but it was all square three minutes later when Arsenal's Squillaci headed an attempted clearance into his own net.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had made eight changes from the side which beat Chelsea 3-1 and his second-string side lacked the team's usual fluency.
