A quiet game for the Czech until he sprung into action with some routine saves towards the end. Always looked in control.
Decorated Chelsea's attacks with his brilliant footwork - including one outrageous piece of first-half skill that had the watching Roman Abramovich grinning from ear to ear. Rodallega caused him the occasional problem but this was a first-class display from the center-back.
Bombed forward well and a safe and secure presence whenever Wigan attacked.
One horrific square pass apart, he was equally solid at center-back and right-back.
Made some excellent bursts down the right flank but his delivery let him down too often. Replaced by Alex with 15 minutes left.
Scuffed a brilliant opportunity to put Chelsea ahead following Drogba's excellent square ball. Drove forward at every opportunity but his passing sat-nav was on the blink.
With the sun on his back and on the left of a front three, looked more like the darling of the autumn. Twice denied by Al Habsi in goal before slamming in the opening goal. Sure to have booked his place in the starting X1 for Tuesday. Shame about the last six months.
His energy and industry were near faultless. But wasted a brilliant opportunity early on when he mis-controlled Lampard's scuffed shot with the goal at his mercy.
J. Obi Mikel
Roused himself for the occasional interception but generally strolled through the first half as if he was playing in an exhibition match. Subbed at half-time.
Linked up well with Drogba as his selflessness and greater appreciation of the bigger picture brought the best out of the Ivorian. Subbed for Torres wit half-hour left.
Reverted to the lone striker role that suits him best, he was a powerhouse. Bashed defenders out of the way, ran the channels energetically and shot from all angles. With less desperation when in sight of the goal, he could have got on the scoresheet.
Ali Al Habsi
An excellent last line of defense. Twice denied Malouda with athletic saves, tipped a deflected Drogba free-kick over the bar and saved brilliantly from Torres late on. But his copybook was blotted when he flapped at the Drogba corner that led to the goal.
Rarely ventured beyond the half-way line but the powerful right-back won endless headers and stood tall whenever required.
Made some fine last-ditch challenges and read the game well against Chelsea's multi-faceted attack.
Never wasted an opportunity to burst forward, read the game well and made some important interceptions.
A rock at the heart of the Wigan defense. The captain led by example with some strong challenges and his power in the air. Got caught out late on by Chelsea's swift counter-attacks.
Sprayed some magnificent long-range passes when in possession but struggled to see enough of the ball.
His pace and ability to convert defense quickly into attack meant Wigan were always a threat and that Chelsea could never thrown caution to the wind. Subbed with 30 minutes left.
The on-loan Manchester United man struggled to get involved on the right of Wigan's narrow midfield.
A font of industry in central midfield, he harried and harassed his gilded opponents and delivered some threatening set-pieces.
Covered every blade of grass in the central acres but his touch was hit-and-miss. Subbed late on.
His clever footwork and bursts of acceleration caused problems for Chelsea's defense but tired after the break and was withdrawn for the last half-hour.
- 22 R. Turnbull
His return was joyously received by the home fans and he slotted in well alongside fellow Brazilian Luiz. Made some crucial interceptions in added time.
- 5 M. Essien
- 18 Y. Zhirkov
In his first Chelsea appearance since September 22, he looked bright but his passing was rusty and he wasted some excellent positions.
- 21 S. Kalou
Nearly but not quite for the Spaniard in a lively cameo as he came the closest yet to breaking his Chelsea duck. Failed to make the most of a string of half-chances before his powerful toe-poked shot was saved brilliantly by Al Habsi late on.
- 12 M. Pollitt
- 2 S. Gohouri
- 23 R. Stam
- 14 Jordi Gómez
Replaced Diame in the final minutes.
F. Di Santo
The Argentinian has played 21 Premier League games for Wigan this season and not scored, which made his substitution for N'Zogbia bizarre. Never looked like breaking his duck.
Replaced Rodallega for the last half-hour and, although his power caused problems, his touch frequently let him down.
