's Nick Teale uses the Bettorlogic form lab to analyse the statistics ahead of Sunday's Premier League trip to Wigan.

Over the last two seasons Arsenal have only lost once against clubs in the Premier League's bottom six.

The Gunners have averaged 2.53 points per game in such fixtures since the start of last term, and an average of 2.68 goals per game.

Opponents Wigan Athletic have averaged 1.24 points per home game this term, with a 29 per cent win rate.

Roberto Martinez' side have struck 44 per cent more home goals this term with Emmerson Boyce in their starting XI. The defender has started 11 times this term and those extra goals have helped Wigan to 18 per cent more points than the team has averaged at the DW Stadium this term.

Arsenal have only met on 12 occasions in footballing history and Arsène Wenger has presided over the Gunners in all of those fixtures.

The Latics' solitary victory over Arsenal came in January 2006 when Paul Scharner's 78th-minute strike gave Wigan a 1-0 first leg advantage in the Carling Cup Semi-Final.

The Gunners have won 10 of the other 11 fixtures, scoring 24 goals in the process.

Founded in 1932, the Latics are by far the Premier League's youngest club. They also have the lowest average attendance in the top flight this season, with an average of 17,624 fans attending their home games.
