  • FT - It's all over as Chelsea beat Wigan 2-0 at the DW Stadium thanks to two early goals, with Eden Hazard playing a role in both.

  • It looks all but over now for Wigan as the Blues win a late throw in midfield and it looks like it'll be the last action of the game.

  • Ivanovic, whose had a busy time of things today at both ends, knocks the ball out for a Wigan throw.

  • Three additional minutes are added but a comeback looks beyond Wigan now, with Chelsea on the ball.

  • Kone and Gomez combine nicely to weave into the box but the latter's final touch is lacking again as he pokes it wide.

  • Some good link-up between Torres, Oscar and Ivanovic as the Blues go for a late attack but it ultimately comes to nothing.

  • Terry heads the ball out of the Chelsea box to ease some late pressure from Wigan as they push for something in these dying stages.

  • Watson catches Torres just outside the box and it's a Chelsea free-kick in these late minutes, which Luiz latches onto but Al Habsi saves.

  • There's late drama as Kone pings Moses' cross off the post and it falls to Gomez, who tries an audacious bicycle overhead kick but can't get it on target. Great effort though.

  • After a couple of near-misses, Lampard is finally booked for a foul on Moses.

  • Close call for Wigan as Gomez fires in the corner and Kone is there but heads wide, then is clattered by Cech.

  • Wigan appeal for a handball against Luiz but nothing is given by the ref and Chelsea are still on the ball. Ivanovic gives it away and Watson looks for Kone but Terry is there to clear.

  • Chelsea also make another change as Raul Meireles comes on for Juan Mata.

  • Ben Watson comes on for McArthur as the hosts make their final swap

  • Boyce powers in another cross from the right but Terry is there to intervene. Another change is coming for Wigan.

  • Moses flies off past Lampard down the left and finds Gomez in the box but Luiz steals the ball back.

  • Chelsea are patiently exchanging passes at the back, in no hurry to relinquish the ball. They're in control as the minutes count down.

  • Cole is forced to retreat under pressure from Alcaraz and gets lucky as McCarthy charges in to hand the ball back to the Blues.

  • It's Gomez who does the honours and it's a driving effort but the goalkeeper has it covered as he dives to meet it.

  • Wigan win a free-kick not far outside the box as Lampard brings down Gomez and gets a talking to. It remains to be seen who'll take this in Maloney's absence.
