Everton 3-1 Wigan Athletic – Premier League – September 17 2011

David Moyes’ Everton side produced a valuable 3-1 win against Wigan despite putting out a first 11 with no natural strikers.

Tim Cahill lead the line for the Toffees but it was debut goals from Apostolos Vellios and Royston Drenthe (after a strike from Phil “Jags” Jagielka) which won the game for the home side.

Wigan’s Franco Di Santo, who is enjoying a veritable scoring spree (by his standards anyway), netted his third in three games for the Latics.
