WIGAN, England(AP) Robin van Persie's 14th goal of the campaign rounded off Arsenal's convincing 4-0 victory over Wigan in the English Premier League on Saturday.
The in-form Netherlands striker took his tally in all competitions this season to 17 in 19 games by with a neat finish to Theo Walcott's cross, lifting his team above Newcastle to fifth in the table.
Mikel Arteta, defender Thomas Vermaelen - with his third goal in his last four league matches - and Gervinho also scored for Arsenal, which hasn't lost in the Premier League in two months.
The defeat dropped Wigan to bottom place in the standings, on goal difference from Bolton.
