2005: Wigan Athletic 2-3 Arsenal

Arsenal recorded their first away victory of the season, defeating high-flying Wigan Athletic 3-2.

All five goals came in the first half, the Gunners opening the scoring on 11 minutes when Robin van Persie's shot squirmed under John Filan.

Thierry Henry then coolly slotted into the corner to double the visitors' lead.

Wigan hit back through Henri Camara's diving header, but Henry pulled Arsenal clear again with a trademark free-kick.

Jimmy Bullard scored with a curling shot into the corner on the stroke of half-time but Wigan could not get back on level terms, as the Latics' impressive six-match winning run ended.

The result left Wigan second on 25 points, nine points behind leaders Chelsea, while Arsenal moved up to fourth on 23 points.
