Mikel Arteta’s penalty secured a third consecutive Premier League victory for Arsenal for the first time since March.Arouna Kone wasted the Latics’ best chance when he broke clear but failed to hit the target in the first-half.Arteta scored from the spot just before the hour after Jean Beausejour was penalised for a challenge on Theo Walcott, who again played as a striker.Wigan have lost six of their last eight games and are in the bottom three at Christmas for the third straight year. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger joked about coming through a “super crisis” after the 5-2 win at Reading on Monday.And the Frenchman will take a large measure of satisfaction with the way his team, who were unspectacular but efficient, dealt with a difficult afternoon at the DW Stadium. With festive matches against Newcastle and Southampton to come, Wenger will be confident that his team can enter the new year with a tight grip on a top-four spot.Although he earned the penalty, Walcott, whose future remains uncertain, was deprived of service for much of the game and the closest he came to scoring himself was a second-half free-kick.But his contribution was enough to provide yet more frustration for Wigan.The absence of four of his centre-backs forced Wigan manager Roberto Martinez to employ a back four rather than his favoured three-man defence.With Antonio Lopez out for 10 weeks, he will be desperate for Gary Caldwell, Ivan Ramis and Antolin Alcaraz to return to action over the festive period. Martinez did cause Arsenal uncertainty when James McCarthy lined up as a third centre-back at the kick off only to take up his usual position in midfield seconds later.But Arsenal began well and after Arteta was allowed to carry the ball from halfway, he fed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, whose drive was pushed past the post by Ali Al Habsi.For all of their selection issues, Wigan played with purpose and Kone should have done better when he beat Jack Wilshere and Thomas Vermaelen before hitting a tame shot straight at Wojciech Szczesny.The Ivory Coast striker threatened again when he was played through by Franco Di Santo and tore away from Per Mertesacker but his shot squirmed wide.Wigan full-backs Ronnie Stam and Jean Beausejour were still getting forward at every opportunity despite only having two centre-backs behind them. And after the interval, Arsenal began to exploit the space behind Beausejour, with Oxlade-Chamberlain having one cross cut out and then picking out Walcott, who was denied from close-range by Al Habsi.It was a policy that paid off just before the hour when Walcott dropped wide and swapped passes with Santi Cazorla before going down under Beausejour’s challenge.Arteta waited for Al Habsi to dive and stroked in his third successful penalty of the season.Wigan responded with Kone cutting in from the left and forcing a save from Szczesny and Maynor Figueroa had a drive held by the goalkeeper.David Jones thumped a shot narrowly wide from just outside the area but Arsenal came through a nervous finish to take the points. Wigan boss Roberto Martinez: “That first goal was going to be crucial. The penalty was very soft. Theo was very clever.“At the other end, it was a clear penalty [for a handball against Kieran Gibbs] because the hands were not in a natural position.“We are going through a spell where the calls are not going for us, but I am proud of the players. Once all the players are back we will get the rewards.”Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: “It was hard-fought. Wigan are a good side. We were not as good, sharp and fluent as Monday [when beating Reading].“It was a tough game and Wigan can surprise a lot of teams. Once we were 1-0 up it was all Wigan but we were well organised. It looked like from outside [that it was a penalty for us].” Asked if Theo can play up front, he added: “I am convinced he can do that. Today he didn’t get that much service but he worked hard and got us the penalty.”

What channel is Monday Night Football on?TV channel: ESPNLive stream: ESPN appESPN (and ABC) has been the home for “Monday Night Football” since its inception in 1970. You can find a live stream for MNF games at ESPN.com or by downloading the ESPN app.Joe Tessitore and Booger McFarland will have the call from the booth. McFarland was a sideline analyst last year, but moved into the booth when Jason Witten returned to the Dallas Cowboys following a stint in broadcasting that was not particularly well-received.Lisa Salters returns for her eighth season as sideline reporter, and John Perry is the crew’s new officiating analyst for 2019.Monday Night Football schedule 2019Week 1Sept. 9Texans at Saints (7 p.m. ET) The Chiefs have dominated their series with the Chargers of late, winning nine of the last 10, and are favored by 4 1/2 points in Monday night’s game. Much of that has to do with their quarterback.MORE: The glory days of “Monday Night Football”Patrick Mahomes has 6 touchdowns and no interceptions for a 122.2 passer rating in his two career games against the Chargers. He also is on a hot streak against AFC West teams in general and looking for his seventh division game in a row with a passer rating of 105 or better.His QB counterpart Monday night is coming off a rough game in LA’s loss to Oakland last week, but Philip Rivers still entered Week 11 leading the NFL in passing yards with 2,816. Rivers also tends to play well against Kansas City; he has 6,870 career passing yards against the Chargers, his most against any opponent.Below is all you need to know about Monday night’s game between the Chiefs and Chargers in Mexico City, including the kickoff time and TV channel.Who plays on Monday Night Football tonight?Kansas City Chiefs vs. Los Angeles Chargers in Mexico CityKickoff time: 8:15 p.m. ETIn both our NFL Week 11 picks against the spread and straight-up predictions, Sporting News projected a Chiefs victory over the Chargers on Monday night. Below are the explanations.Pick against the spread: The Chiefs were supposed to play this game in Mexico City against the other Los Angeles team last season, a shootout they lost in LA, instead. Kansas City will get back on track with plenty of Patrick Mahomes, set up well by the running game, ripping apart the Chargers’ defense. Philip Rivers will keep slumping against an underrated pass rush, and Melvin Gordon will not run well enough to save the night. Pick: Chiefs win 34-27 and cover the spread.Straight-up prediction: Let’s try this again. The field issues that forced Mexico City’s game to move to LA last year reportedly won’t resurface, so fans at Estadio Azteca finally will get their Patrick Mahomes show. Speaking of resurfacing, will the old Philip Rivers eventually show up this season? The Chargers are far from done as contenders in the AFC, but they’ll trend that way if their QB’s struggles continue. They’ll need big numbers from him Monday in order to keep up with the Chiefs. Pick: Chiefs 30, Chargers 26.MORE: Full betting preview for Chiefs vs. Chargers Sept. 9Broncos at Raiders (10:15 p.m. ET)Week 2Sept. 16Browns at JetsWeek 3Sept. 23Bears at RedskinsWeek 4Sept. 30Bengals at SteelersWeek 5Oct. 7Browns at 49ersWeek 6Oct. 14Lions at PackersWeek 7Oct. 21Patriots at JetsWeek 8Oct. 28Dolphins at SteelersWeek 9Nov. 4Cowboys at GiantsWeek 10Nov. 11Seahawks at 49ersWeek 11Nov. 18Chiefs at ChargersWeek 12Nov. 25Ravens at RamsWeek 13Dec. 2Vikings at SeahawksWeek 14Dec. 9Giants at EaglesWeek 15Dec. 16Colts at SaintsWeek 16Dec. 23Packers at Vikings Tonight’s “Monday Night Football” game is unique not because of the teams playing, but due to the location.
