Wigan Athletic boss Roberto Martinez insists anything can happen against Manchester United tomorrow night.

The Latics are still fuming after the manner of defeat at Chelsea.

But Martinez insisted: “These fixtures are opportunities to get out of where we are.

“We are not in a situation where we would fear any of the games coming our way. We have shown in our last three games against Liverpool, Stoke and Chelsea that we can play against anyone, anywhere.

“We have United and Arsenal but then we have Fulham, Newcastle, Blackburn and Wolves.

“And these six games are real opportunities for us to get the points we need to move up the table. If we’d got the point we should have at Chelsea we would be up to 16th place in the Premier League.

“We’ve had a lot of bad luck with referees’ decisions and hopefully in the next six games we’ll get the good luck on our side.”
