Tony Adams, Marc Overmars, Dennis Bergkamp, Emmanuel Petit and Christopher Wreh were the goalscorers to extend Arsenal's unbeaten run to 15 matches.

Wimbledon remained 13th in the table.

Wigan Athletic scored three times in the final 10 minutes to beat Arsenal 3-2 and boost their hopes of safety. 

Theo Walcott and Mikael Silvestre had given the Gunners a 2-0 lead, which they kept until the 80th minute at DW Stadium.

Ben Watson's neat finish pulled one back, before Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski dropped a corner and Titus Bramble headed an equaliser. 

Charles N'Zogbia completed the turnaround with a powerful finish in stoppage time, taking Wigan seven points clear of the relegation zone. Arsenal remained third.
