Shaun Maloney: "Pressure is on Arsenal"

Wigan Athletic's Shaun Maloney tries to put the burden on Arsenal ahead of their FA Cup semi-final meeting this evening.

Wigan Athletic midfielder Shaun Maloney has claimed that the "pressure is on Arsenal" ahead of their FA Cup semi-final meeting on Saturday evening.

The Championship side go head-to-head with the Gunners at Wembley, and the Scottish international heaped the burden on their Premier League opponents.

Speaking to BBC Sport he said: "The pressure is on Arsenal, they will have it all on them.

"We'll have some on ourselves too of course. We'll need our goalkeeper to produce a save at some point, and we need players like [Callum McManaman] last season to have to a Man of the Match performance."

The Latics are bidding to retain the FA Cup.
