Wigan won't be the Victor this week

Chelsea can close the gap on the leaders Man City by taking three points at the DW Stadium on Saturday. The Blues are starting to find some form after an indifferent period, where they were beaten twice by Liverpool in a few weeks and got well beat by Arsenal.

The home win is 15/2, the draw is 15/4 and a Chelsea away win is 4/11. Chelsea were impressive against Man City on Monday and it was their third win in a row.

Chelsea are now right back in the title race and they face a Wigan side that are having a mini revival. They have beaten both West Brom and Sunderland recently but they are still having problems finding the back of the net.

Chelsea need to start keeping more clean sheets and being more disciplined at the back. They were lucky not to lose Bosingwa to a red card after a poor challenge on Monday.

Chelsea look a cracking price at 6/5 to win to nil, the Londoners have scored 15 goals without reply in the last three matches against the Latics.

Chelsea had been on a run of one clean sheet in just 10 away games, before keeping shut outs in their last two road trips. Wigan's Victor Moses only scored his first goal of the season last week and he is 5/1 to score anytime against the West London club.

Chelsea's revival is partly due to the fantastic performances of late from Juan Mata and Daniel Sturridge. Sturridge was the main man against his former club Man City, he tends to play on the right wing but he is still a massive threat in front of goal.

He is 10/3 to score the first goal in the clash. Chelsea won 6-0 at the DW Stadium last season and a repeat scoreline is 80/1. Over 2.5 goals is 8/13 and the price looks right!

Chelsea will play with their defenders sitting on the halfway line and they will attack Wigan at pace. They will not sit back against their opponents. Wigan's best chance of scoring will be on the break. You can back both teams to score at 19/20.

If you fancy an upset at the DW Stadium, you can back Wigan or the draw at 2/1. They are 5/1 to win draw no bet, but Wigan have won just one of their last twelve meetings with Chelsea.

Wigan's star player of late has been Jordi Gomez. He has scored in three of his last four appearances and the Spanish midfielder has finally earned a regular spot in the side. As a youth player he was involved in the setup at Barcelona and he is a skilful player.

The Spaniards spotkick sealed the Latics win at the Hawthorns last week. Lampard came off the bench to score the winning goal, a penalty against City on Monday. For the Match Winner,  we have enhanced the price of the last goal in the match to be a penalty from 8/1 to 12/1!
