Wigan 1-1 Arsenal (aet, 2-4 pen): Gunners duo hail 'massive' win

Arsenal's Thomas Vermaelen and Mikel Arteta say beating Wigan on penalties in the FA Cup semi-final was "tough" but is a "massive" victory for the club.

The Gunners looked to be heading out of the competition after Jordi Gomez's penalty gave the Latics the lead, but Per Mertesacker equalised late on for Arsenal.

After a goalless extra-time, Arsenal scored all of their penalties to win 4-2 and keep alive their hopes of ending a nine-year trophy drought.
