On one particular occasion in the second half, Lampard made one of those little runs into the box and was just about to pull the trigger when Cattermole appeared from nowhere and got back brilliantly to intervene - that really was a great example of him dying for the cause.
Cattermole was terrific but it was by no means a one-man effort - Wigan worked unbelievably hard as a team and that is where they did better than Portsmouth last week.
Pompey got plenty of men behind the ball but they didn't close down as a unit, they were almost like mannequins as Chelsea ran around them.
Everyone likes to have time on the ball but on Sunday Wigan hassled and harried for 90 minutes and Chelsea ended up rushing a few of their passes and getting clattered in tackles.
The workload Wigan got through was remarkable and they maintained their concentration too, which is the key thing about playing one of the top teams in the country.
They also showed they can play some football too - I thought Wilson Palacios was fantastic in the first half and Emile Heskey held the ball up exceptionally well when they needed him.
However, Chelsea will not be too disappointed. One piece of magic from Deco and they get the three points - that's the sign of a very good team indeed.
