Wigan take on Chelsea on Sunday 19th August, 2012, with kickoff at 13:30. This match is currently being shown LIVE on Sky Sports 1.
There could be some palpable tension when these two meet for their first games of the season, with the transfer of Victor Moses from Roberto Martinez’s Wigan to Chelsea has turned a bit ugly amid accusations of fee-wrangling and deliberately unsettling the player. On the pitch Chelsea will be a fascinating watch this year, and picking their form will be tough for anyone wanting to take a punt on the latest expensively-assembled team at Stamford Bridge.
Wigan won’t want another relegation battle, and a good start here would certainly help their coaches set a good tone for the season ahead.
