Philippe Senderos has warned his Arsenal team-mates to guard against complacency when they take on Wigan on Saturday.
The Gunners boast an unbeaten record this season and the Swiss defender is keen to stretch that statistic against the Latics at Emirates Stadium.
Wigan, who sit second bottom of the Premier League, are currently in a period of uncertainty following the delayed arrival of new manager Steve Bruce.
Arsenal, though, are missing Cesc Fabregas (suspended), Alexander Hleb (hamstring), Mathieu Flamini (thigh) and Abou Diaby (back), while Gilberto Silva is not due to return from international duty until Friday.
And Senderos has warned his team-mates that they must not take three points for granted on Saturday, especially after a lengthy international break.
"These kind of games are always difficult, especially coming back from the internationals," Senderos told Sky Sports News.
"The team (Wigan) are struggling and they have nothing to lose and last season we lost a few points against teams in the second half of the table."
However, Senderos believes that Arsenal's team-spirit will continue to serve them well against Wigan.
"This year we have been concentrating really well on these type of games," Senderos added.
"Everyone is fighting for each other and there is a really good feeling going around at the training ground and you can see that on the pitch."
