Following the Latics great result that goes a long way to securing another season of Premier League football both managers spoke to the press, lets see what they had to say:
Latics boss Roberto Martinez:
'It was a great feeling when the ball hit the net because over the last few games so much has gone against us and at times been very unfair'
'It was getting to the point where I thought their goalkeeper would be picking up the man-of-the-match award after making some great saves towards the end.
'We had a few chances earlier in the game to score, but that is the kind of reward the lads deserve, not just from today but from all those performances we deserved more from this season.
'I think today shows that sometimes you do get the rewards you deserve.
'Burnley came here and did very well, they were very disciplined putting plenty of bodies behind the ball trying to make things very difficult.
'At times the game was very stop, start but it was important to keep that calmness in our performance and it was very satisfying to see that from everyone.
'You could see people were getting anxious in the first-half but after the break the players did well and grew into the game as it went along.
'We knew we had to increase the tempo in the second-half, because up until that point we'd allowed Burnley to frustrate us and we weren't getting into the right positions quick enough.
'But our passing and decision-making got a lot better and quicker which allowed us to enter the final stages of the game looking dangerous.'
'Victor Moses has been a breath of fresh air since arriving at the club and we all knew the talent he had.
'The step up to the Premier League is a big one but the way he's been performing shows the maturity in his play and the ability he has.
'He produced a great assist at the end which was finished well and that will give him a big boost.'

Burnley boss Brian Laws:
'They've put so much in, of course they're devastated but I said if you put that effort and determination in we will get wins under our belts
'It is a cruel game but we can't allow that to take away the positives, there were a lot of things that went well.
'I'm delighted as a manager, I'm very proud of them and if we continue like that I'm sure the supporters will be proud of them too.'
