Arsenal's Carlos Vela made one goal and scored another
Arsenal's youngsters produced another outstanding display to brush aside Wigan and book their place in the Carling Cup quarter-finals.
A pinpoint pass from Jack Wilshere set up fellow teenager Jay Simpson to poke home on his first start for the club.
They added a second when a blistering counter-attack ended with Carlos Vela squaring for Simpson to sidefoot home.
Vela outpaced Titus Bramble before chipping Chris Kirkland with a stunning lob to complete the scoring.
The Mexican's finish was reminiscent of his breathtaking effort in the demolition of Sheffield United in the previous round.
It was met by joyful appreciation from manager Arsene Wenger on the sidelines and it was hardly surprising after seeing his side, with an average age of just 19, take apart a Wigan side full of Premier League experience.
Wenger stuck with 10 of the side that demolished the Blades in the previous round, with the one addition of Simpson making it eight teenagers in the starting line-up.
They looked nervous in the opening stages and keeper Lukasz Fabianski was less than convincing in coming a long way out of his goal to try and collect a long throw only to completely miss the ball.
But it was his opposite number Chris Kirkland who was the busier of the two goalkeepers throughout.
The England stopper pulled off a string of top saves to deny a Gunners side that got better and better as the game progressed.
Vela was the first to test him as he raced through on goal and held off the challenge of Emmerson Boyce, only for Kirkland to pinch the ball from his feet as he tried to go round the keeper.
Simpson turned well before firing a shot against the top of the bar and Kieran Gibbs saw his effort saved by Kirkland.
Wigan's attacks were infrequent, with only a Daniel De Ridder shot at Fabianski and a Jason Koumas effort over the bar to show for a disappointing opening period.
Arsenal stepped up the pace and Aaron Ramsay's free-kick almost found its way into the top corner, only for Kirkland to get across brilliantly to keep it out.
Kirkland seemed to be struggling after landing awkwardly, but he was still able to tip another Vela effort around the post.
The goalkeeper was proving to be a one-man blockade but even he could do nothing to prevent the opener.
