Wigan Athletic 2-2 Arsenal
Arsenal were held by ten-man Wigan at the DW Stadium as a late own goal from Sebastien Squillaci forced a 2-2 draw.
The Gunners can only have themselves to blame as two defensive errors proved to be their undoing.
Wigan took the lead in the 17th minute when Charles N'Zogbia was brought down by Laurent Koscielny on the edge of the area. Ben Watson stood up to take the penalty and converted coolly.
The introduction of Jack Wilshere in place of Abou Diaby proved to be the catalyst the Gunners needed to take the lead with two goals late in the first half.
The first came in the 39th minute through Andrey Arshavin. Nicklas Bendtner's shot was palmed into the air by Latics keeper Ali Al Habsi and the Russian was calm on the volley to score the equaliser.
Arsenal found themselves 2-1 up five minutes later when roles were reversed. Arshavin turned provider as he slotted a delightful ball into the path of Bendtner. The Dane darted past two defenders before finishing with aplomb.
Wigan didn't deserve to go into half-time trailing and things were made tougher for them 12 minutes from the end when N'Zogbia was sent off for clashing with Jack Wilshere.
However, this did not deter the Latics, who scored their equaliser a mere two minutes later. A cross into the box caused all sorts of problems for the Arsenal defence and Squillaci headed past his own goalkeeper under pressure from Gary Caldwell.
Bendtner had three tame half-chances towards the end as Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger introduced Samir Nasri and Theo Walcott to add more bite to his attack but the Latics hung on for a crucial point.
