888sport's betting expert, Ed Nicholson, looks ahead to a difficult clash with Chelsea…

Results are starting to pick up for the Lactics, with two wins in their last three games - good news for Wigan fans going into this one.

888sport has Wigan at 15/2 to win tomorrow at the DW stadium.

Jordi Gómez has scored in three of his last four Premier League appearances. Gómez is 16/1 to score the game’s first goal and 5/1 to score at anytime against Chelsea.

43% of the goals Wigan have scored this season have been netted from outside the box, in open play - the highest proportion in the top flight. 888sport is offering a special on the evening kick-off’s first goal to be a shot from outside the box at 4/1.

Roberto Martinez should be looking for a positive early start from his side tomorrow. No side have conceded a higher proportion of goals in the opening 15 minutes of Premier League games this season than Chelsea (22%). 888sport go 15/8 for the time of the first goal to be in the first 15 minutes of the game.

Wrap up warm for this one!
