The former Wigan Athletic boss Paul Jewell would not be surprised to see his old club write another unlikely chapter in their history when the FA Cup holders face Arsenal.

Wigan will return to Wembley where they stunned Manchester City in one of the greatest FA Cup final upsets of all time.

"You can't predict with Wigan," Jewell said.

"Arsenal have had a few struggles since Liverpool beat them terribly and I watched the game on Sunday at Everton, they were very well beaten.

"I'm sure Uwe will be saying we've got to be careful with the wounded animal because they've had a bit of stick in the press. But I look at the way Wigan have played this season and they're aggressive in their style of play, their movement is good and I think they have a chance.''
