Wigan Athletic vs. Chelsea Preview & Tips

Posted on by editor

Chelsea is officially back in the hunt for the Premiership title after engineering a come-from-behind victory over Man City at Stamford Bridge last weekend. With the bit between their teeth the Blues travel North in search of full points against woeful Wigan.

Wigan Athletic vs. Chelsea Trends Analysis

Chelsea has won eight of its last ten matches against Wigan, while Wigan has pulled off a single home win during this period. Chelsea has managed four away wins against Wigan at the DW Stadium during this period.

Chelsea’s last visit to the DW Stadium saw the Blues crush their hosts 6-0.

Despite a win over West Brom on the weekend, Wigan still finds itself in the relegation zone with two wins, two losses and a draw to show for its last five matches. These results are somewhat flattering for the side, which has spent the last several weeks playing other clubs lurking in the last five of the Premiership.

Wigan has scored a total of 8 goals in its last five matches. Defence has been amongst the worst in the Premiership over recent weeks, conceding 12 goals during this period.

Chelsea, meanwhile, is back from the brink with four wins and a single defeat to show for its last five fixtures. City has shown form against quality opponents in recent weeks, putting away the likes of Newcastle and Valencia before ending Man City’s unbeaten run in the Premiership this season.

Chelsea’s return to form has much to do with the performances of its strikers, who have accrued 11 goals in five matches. Defence has done its bit for the cause too, letting in just 3 goals during this period while maintaining three clean sheets.

Wigan Athletic vs. Chelsea Betting Tips

It looks like this match may not end happily for Wigan, who’re likely to find themselves out of their debt after several soft fixtures.

The Wigan defence certainly doesn’t seem up to the task of keeping out the powerful Chelsea attack, and this match is likely to be about damage control for the home side, rather than any sort of challenge for the win.

With this in mind our Wigan Athletic vs Chelsea betting tip is to back over 2.75 goals being scored in this match in the over/under goals betting markets.
