Kick-off: 18.30 (live @ Sky Sport 3)
Chelsea can add more substance to their Premier League title ambitions with a win over Wigan at the DW Stadium on Saturday evening. The Blues are looking to follow-up Monday's eye-catching 2-1 win over Manchester City, with the title-race now "alive", according to their manager Andre Villas-Boas. His side still trail the league leaders by seven points although, with Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, Chelsea could further close the gap this weekend. They take on a rejuvenated Wigan on Saturday, a side who have won two of their last three Premier League games, although it is at home where they have largely struggled this season. Since beating Queens Park Rangers 2-0 in August, Wigan have not won on home soil in their following five games.
Wigan: L L D W L W
Chelsea: L W L W W W
• Chelsea have won their last three league matches and are looking to make it four in a row under Andre Villas-Boas for the first time.
It's the third time this season that they have won three in a row, but on the two previous occasions they have lost the next match.
Chelsea: Essien, McEachran
