Made a good low save to deny Di Santo early on before keeping out a good effort from Maloney later in the half. Was beaten by an alert Maloney for Wigan's goal, he would have liked to have done better.
Had a tough task keeping Beausejour under wraps on the left flank but kept the Honduran quiet overall. His delivery into the box when in the final third was reliable throughout.
Dealt with the threat of Franco Di Santo well on the whole, was caught out of position on a couple of occasions.
Back in his best position, the Brazilian's range of passing was superb. He broke out of his own half well to create the Blues' opening goal.
Maloney drifted in field more often than not, leaving Cole with little to do defensively. Was not his usual assured self going forward, misplaced a couple of passes in the final third.
A nervy second-half performance after Wigan got themselves back into the match but did enough to help his side see out the win.
Could have done a little more with a couple of half chances, apart from that the Chelsea skipper had an uneventful afternoon, until he lashed home another goal late on.
Took his goal superbly after making a lung-busting run to overlap Fernando Torres.
His trickery gave Stam and Scharner a real headache throughout the match and he took his goal superbly to double Chelsea's lead.
Made a couple of sloppy passes early on but then began to influence the game with his inventive use of the ball as the game progressed.
Played a lovely first-time ball to set up Ramires' opening goal. Could have got on the scoresheet himself but was denied by a string of fine saves from Al-Habsi.
Ali Al Habsi
Kept Wigan in the game with a string of fine saves in the first half but did not have a lot to do after the break.
Made superb challenge on Hazard to deny the Belgian the chance to open the scoring. Lucky to stay on the pitch after a number of wreckless challenges.
Got forward down the right flank on plenty of occasions but rarely got past Ashley Cole or managed to deliver anything of any real quality into his forwards.
Lost out in a number of aerial duels with Fernando Torres but made a couple of last-ditch challenges in the second period to keep Wigan in the game.
Made a bright start to the game but his influence faded later in the match. Maintained a good standard of delivery from the left-hand side.
Was caught out of position on a few occasions and had an anonymous game otherwise.
Settled back into the Wigan team well, showing good strength in a couple of early challenges. Began to look off the pace in the second period.
Had trouble keeping tabs on Chelsea's midfield trio and often found himself being caught out in possession. Improved after the break and clipped a superb pass for Maloney's goal.
Rarely got himself on the ball with a chance to get his head up and therefore failed to influence the game as he would have liked.
F. Di Santo
Showed endeavour and enthusiasm against his old club but failed to trouble the Chelsea centre-halves. Brought a fine save out of Cech in the opening minutes.
