Arsenal Vs. Wigan: Robin Van Persie Finally Finds His Hat-Trick

The Emirates has seen the day’s second red card, but after Robin van
Persie Wayne Rooney’d his spot kick, the day’s second hat-trick was put
on hold. Arsenal was still up 2-0 over Wigan, but with Gary Caldwell‘s 70th minute sending-off, they were playing a man up, giving the Gunners ample time and advantage to pad the score.
In the 85th minute, that’s happened, with Robin van Persie completing his hat-trick thanks to the work of Cesc Fàbregas and Theo Walcott.
The main part of the movement started with Fàbregas on the ball just
inside his own half. Wigan was playing a very high line, one that was
easily beaten by Theo Walcott. Fàbregas played a long ball into the
area for the right wing, but instead of playing the pass, Walcott
shielded his man from the ball, allowing van Persie to come onto an
easy right-footed finish from seven yards out.
Arsenal, now up 3-0, now looks to temporarily move from third to
second in the English Premier League. Set to go to 46 points, the
Gunners will stay behind Manchester United, but until the day’s late match is done, Arsenal will sit above previously second Manchester City.
