Comment
Carlo Ancelotti tasted his first defeat in charge of Chelsea at the David Whelan stadium.
The Blues were down to nine after Cech's red card and Ashley Cole's injury, which forced him off once Ancelotti had used all his subs.
There was a milestone reached for Didier Drogba though, who scored his 100th Chelsea goal in Wigan.
