Wigan Atheltic pulled off plenty of shocks and upsets during their time in the Premier League and on this day 10 years ago they secured a stunning win against Arsenal.

The Latics often left it late to say themselves from relegation and on April 18, 2010 they fought back from 2-0 down to beat Arsenal 3-2 at home.

Wigan were 2-0 down but scored three times in the last 10 minutes to stun Arsene Wenger and Arsenal. Ben Watson pulled one back then Titus Bramble made it 2-2 in the 89th minute and Charles N’Zogbia won it for Wigan in the 91st minute.

Not only did this win all but secure their place in the Premier League (they finished in 16th place, six points above the relegation zone), it also ended Arsenal’s title bid as they finished 11 points behind eventual winners Chelsea.

Wigan’s FA Cup win against Man City in 2013 was sensational but they ended up getting relegated a few days later under Roberto Martinez. Wigan haven’t returned to the Premier League since and this win over Arsenal was one of the highlights of their eight-year stay in the top-flight.
