Leon Osman and Phil Jagielka struck as Everton maintained their Champions League challenge with a 2-1 win against an enterprising but luckless Wigan at rain-sodden Goodison Park.

Osman broke the deadlock with a deflected opener early in the second half before Phil Neville marked his 500th Barclays Premier League appearance by setting up Jagielka for the second.

Arouna Kone gave Wigan a late lifeline but it was not enough for the visitors who, despite a hard-working display, appear to be heading for another relegation fight.
