Goals from Leon Osman and Victor Anichebe helped Everton open their Barclays Premier League campaign with a 2-1 win over Wigan.

Osman opened the scoring for the hosts in the first half when he sent a looping header over Chris Kirkland.

Anichebe netted with 15 minutes remaining following a neat ball from Andrew Johnson, and although Wigan pulled one back through substitute Antoine Sibierski, they could not force a draw.
