When and Where: The Premier League match kicks-off from the Emirates at 3 p.m. ET. Live coverage of the game will be on the Fox Soccer Channel. An online stream will be also be available in delayed form, via a subscription to FoxSoccer2Go.

Preview: Despite being at virtually opposite ends of the table, Monday's clash at the Emirates is a meeting of two of the Premier League's most in-form teams.

Arsenal have emerged victorious from nine of their last 10 league outings to occupy third place and open up a commanding five-point gap on their rivals for a Champions League place, Tottenham and Chelsea.

And for the Gunners to be in that position is quite an achievement after their awful start to the season.

I looked at it again recently and in the first seven games we had lost four, Wenger recalled, according to the official Arsenal website.

Where we are today is a remarkable achievement and demands a remarkable spirit. Our run in the last 10 games has been excellent and I think our target now is to achieve better than last season.

But Arsenal cannot get complacent with 15 points still to play for this season and Wenger's side can certainly take nothing for granted against Wigan.

Roberto Martinez's men lifted themselves out of the relegation zone with a shock win against Manchester United last time out and will be desperate to upset the apple cart once more against another of the country's big guns.

And Wenger believes his opposite number on Monday, Roberto Martinez, warrants a lot of respect for the job he has done to lead his club to form at just the right time.

He deserves big credit, said Wenger, according to the official Arsenal website. The first six months of this season were very bad but after that they recovered slowly.

You could think at some stage that they were finished but they discovered a way to structure the team in a way that suits them now.

Team News: Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs is touch and go to be passed fit for Monday night's match at the Emirates, as he recovers form a groin injury. Gervinho is rated as having a slightly better chance of recovering from his ankle problem.

Hugo Rodallega, who has not appeared for over a month, stands a chance of making a comeback from a knee injury against Arsenal. However, it is likely that Martinez will stick with Franco Di Santo plowing a lone furrow up front.

Prediction: Having beaten Manchester United and been incredibly unfortunate not to get at least a point against Chelsea in their last two matches, Wigan should pose quite a challenge for Arsenal. Yet the Gunners look especially strong at the Emirates right now and should have enough to edge a close-fought encounter.
