2013 Barclays Premier League: Chelsea vs Wigan Athletic
February 06, 2013 by Marc Jerbs

On Saturday, Chelsea will face Wigan Athletic in an English Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge. Game time is set at 12:45PM GMT.

In their last game, Chelsea was upset by Newcastle, 3-2. The loss proved costly as Tottenham gained 3 points in the table and trimmed Chelsea's lead to a point for a spot in third place. Manchester United currently leads the table with 62 points followed by Manchester City with 53 points.

Chelsea has a fair share of injuries with their players. Demba Ba, David Luiz and Petr Cech would be on the sidelines and doubtful starters against Wigan due to various injuries.

Wigan Athletic almost secured their 6th win of the season against Southampton but eventually settled to a 2-2 draw. Wigan is in danger of relegation since they are in 18th place in the table. With 13 games left in the season, they still have a chance to move up and possibly stay in the Premier League.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed Chelsea as the favorite to win against Wigan Athletic. Wigan may have a chance for an upset based on Chelsea's last three games wherein they earned 2 draws and one loss.
