Wigan stopped Chelsea run

Wigan 1-1 Chelsea Premier League 17/12/2011 highlights

An error from Petr Cech allowed Wigan to hold Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at the DW Stadium. Hugo Rodallega’s limp shot was begging to be collected, but Cech spilled the ball straight into the path of Jordi Gomez, who tapped in from close range.

Chelsea had earlier taken the lead through Daniel Sturridge on 59 minutes after the forward plucked Ashley Cole’s cross-field ball out of the air before lashing a right-foot shot across Ali Al Habsi and into the corner of the net.

The Blues’ grip on a Champions League spot has loosened: they are third, three points ahead of fifth-placed Arsenal, having played a game more than their London rivals. Wigan are one point from safety in 18th.

0-1 (Cole A.) Sturridge D 59´
1-1 Gomez J. 88′
