The only player to start each one of West Ham's Premier League games this season showed his reliability early on, standing strong to deny McManaman but getting away with spilling a Boyce header in the second half, before producing two excellent stops from Beausejour and McArthur.
Pressed hard by Kone in the opening stages but made some important clearances as he often has done throughout the season.
Had a good chance to put the Hammers in front early on with a glancing header. Had issues defensively though when facing the in-form Kone but grew stronger as his side did.
Bit of a slow start and struggled to deal with the threat of McManaman on the wing in the first half, but helped Jarvis double up on the wing at the other end.
Like O'Brien, had a busy afternoon contending with Wigan's wide threat from both Maloney and Beausejour, and was beaten far too often.
Had a fairly quiet afternoon in midfield, with his main contributions coming from set pieces, and was eventually replaced by Noble early after the break.
Was the orchestrator of West Ham's sporadic early attacks, showing excellent movement and cropping up all over the pitch, giving the home side the lead somewhat fortunately with a cross from the left.
Caught out a couple of times early on as Wigan pressed hard, but nearly put West Ham in front with a delightful touch and swiveling volley and was a constant danger going forward, driving the Hammers midfield and capping his performance with an excellent acrobatic finish to seal victory for the hosts.
Has been a real powerhouse in the West Ham midfield, and really looked in the mood today, no doubt buoyed by his superb goal in midweek. After Wigan's early dominance he helped the hosts turn things around and boss the midfield, and he nearly scored with a blocked long-range effort after just missing Jarvis' cross for the opener.
Fairly isolated early on and his frustration showed as he was booked for dissent, but he was imperious in the air. His shots weren't up to scratch as he fired off target more than once, but the big striker kept running until the end with a gritty performance which sadly didn't produce an end product.
Ricardo Vaz Té
Quieter than Jarvis on the other side of midfield, but set things moving for the opening goal with a devastating run forward and produced some good balls across the pitch, but too often made the wrong decision and was lacking in effort compared to some of his team-mates.
Made a superb save to deny Nolan early on but was caught out by Jarvis' cross for the opening goal. Had a couple of routine saves to make but could do nothing about Nolan's excellent strike.
Had the first effort at goal - a tame shot from 20 yards - but was forced off early due to injury without making much of a contribution.
On his return to the side the captain looked efficient, tidying up where necessary and leading the back line by example, but as the hosts grew stronger he had difficulty dealing with Carroll, eventually picking up a booking for fouling the big striker.
Tried his luck with a couple of long-range strikes which never looked like troubling Jaaskelainen but overall produced a solid performance, finding a lot of space to push forward.
Was uncomfortable dealing with Jarvis on the wing, and too easily allowed the West Ham midfielder to cut inside for the cross which ended up going in. Caused Jaaskelainen problems with a low header but defensively he wasn't up to scratch.
Didn't have much to do early on but, with West Ham improving vastly, he had to put his body on the line with the rest of the Wigan defense as they blocked several Hammers efforts and made a couple of important last-ditch challenges.
Teamed up well with Gomez to hassle the Hammers midfield early on, but drifted out of the game at the end of the first half. Helped Wigan fight hard after the break but couldn't help the visitors level things.
Looked determined from the start, pressing the West Ham midfield at every opportunity, but as the game went on his passing grew more wayward. Drifted wide when McArthur came on and had more joy there.
Has been on superb form of late and today was no exception as he made life very difficult for Collins and Reid in the heart of the West Ham defense.
There has been a lot of talk about McManaman recently, and not just for "that" tackle. He showed his potential once again today with some tricky runs forward early on, but he was withdrawn at halftime as he slipped out of the game.
Came on for Diame deep into the second half to shore up the midfield and keep things tight. Had relatively little to do though.
Came on for O'Neil early after the break and showed good touches straight away, spreading the ball about well, but had few chances to get things going as Wigan dominated the second half.
Replaced Vaz Te in the second half but found himself required more in a defensive capacity as the hosts struggled to assert the authority they enjoyed at the end of the first half.
Replaced McManaman at the break and helped Wigan swing the momentum back in their direction. Fired a decent long-range effort but it was straight at Jaaskelainen, before forcing a superb stop from the Hammers goalkeeper with a blasted low shot.
Replaced the injured Alcaraz early on and instantly found joy on the wing against Demel, but failed to track back on a few occasions. Had a great chance to equalize in the second half but was denied by a good save by Jaaskelainen.
