Chelsea 4-1 Wigan, Stamford Bridge, Full Time

Despite getting off to a resilient start, Wigan unsurprisingly fell to a Chelsea side that went up midway through the first period thanks to some sublime Ramires finishing.

A halftime 1-0 deficit was made to look all the worse in the second half when finishes from Eden Hazard, Frank Lampard and Marko Marin were simply too much for the visiting outfit.

Shaun Maloney originally pulled his team back into contention early in the second half but the Scot's goal wasn't enough to stop this result from being seen as anything but embarrassing.
