A highly entertaining game at the DW Stadium on Saturday saw the Latics come from a goal down to grab a late equaliser when Jordi Gomez slammed home from close range to give the his team a well deserved point.
After the game both bosses, Roberto Martinez and Andre Villas-Boas, spoke to the media, let's take a look at what they had to say:
Latics boss Roberto Martinez:
'The performance gives you that feeling that we have picked up all three points not just one'
'The players were thinking at all times and coped with Chelsea's threat when they had the ball really well and then we showed a really dangerous streak in the way we played.'
'We took a few risks and they paid off and the result is exactly what the players deserved today.
'They had a great attitude and a brilliant work ethic which has always been really good but today the tactical awareness was also spot-on and it is a great achievement for the football club.'
Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas:
'They were two completely different halves. The first 20 minutes of the second half we were good and it was a question of patience until we found the goal. We could maybe have tried to go for the second goal but we decided to try to hold onto the first and exploit the space in behind. But we conceded two minutes from the end.'
'This Wigan is a different Wigan. They've picked up momentum from a recent run of good results. The crowd was behind them and they fought hard to get the point.'
