Chelsea Holds Off Wigan, 0-1

0-1 Deco 4"

Chelsea held off a determined Wigan to force a win courtesy of Deco's 25-yard free-kick. The midfielder scored in the 4th minute when he found the top corner after Lee Cattermole had handled.

But Wigan hit back and Blues keeper Petr Cech had to pull off smart saves to keep out shots from Wilson Palacios and Amr Zaki. Chelsea struggled for form but held on for a win as Cech again rescued them by keeping out a late Olivier Kapo shot.
