Chelsea have claimed victory in five of their seven league games at Wigan, although they have won only once in their last three trips to the DW Stadium.
In 2010 the Blues thrashed Wigan 8-0 and 6-0. However, the three meetings since then have been far closer, resulting in one draw and two Chelsea home wins by single-goal margins.
Chelsea have won 11 and lost only one of 14 Premier League games against Wigan.
The Latics won seven of their final nine league games last season, collecting 21 points – more than they managed in their opening 27 matches.
Roberto Martinez’s men have lost just one of their previous eight home games (against Swansea in March), and have won the last four.
Opta statistics show that Victor Moses completed 95 dribbles last season, more than any other Premier League player.
Chelsea have not begun a league season with defeat since 1998, when they were beaten 2-1 at Coventry.
They won nine opening games in a row until last season’s goalless draw at Stoke.
The Blues have only won one of their previous nine away league games (W1, D4, L4). Their only victory in that run was the 4-2 win at Aston Villa on 31 March.
The reigning European champions conceded 20 goals in the final quarter hour of Premier League matches last season, more than any other team.
