An official Chelsea dossier profiling a plan of action for last weekend's game against Wigan Athletic is leaked to the press.

Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez's detailed dossier on Wigan Athletic complied in preparation for last weekend's match has been leaked to the press.

The Blues ran out comfortable 4-1 winners over Wigan on Saturday and following that victory a full report containing a detailed look at Roberto Martinez's side has been acquired by the Daily Mail.

The document was given to Chelsea first-team players and coaches profiling the strengths and weaknesses of all Wigan players complete with a plan of attack for the match.

In the report Latics defender Steven Caldwell is described as "very slow when turning" and Chelsea forwards are advised to run at the centre-back.

Paul Scharner is said to be "uncertain" while Jean Beausejour is targeted as a player who is "very weak on his right foot" and vulnerable to poor passes from wide areas.

Benitez's opposition analyst Xavi Valero is believed to responsible for preparing a similar document on every team the Blues face this season.
