Chelsea Win 2-1 vs Wigan, Keeps Title Hopes Alive

Frank Lampard's late header broke Wigan hearts to send Chelsea second in the Premier League table and keep alive their lingering title chances. John Terry's spectacular mid-air volley in the 25th minute had put the Londoners in the lead despite Wigan dominating the early exchanges. Oliver Kapo seemed to have earned the visitors a point with a late goal of his own, turning in Maynor Figueroa's teasing cross with eight minutes to go. But in injury time Frank Lampard looped a header past Chris Kirkland.
