Wigan caused a Championship upset last night when they held on with 10 men to beat high flying Leeds.
It’s the latest in a series of impressive showings from the Latics inspired by their on loan Chelsea star, Reece James.
The youngster starred in midfield again as they battled to a gritty win, having put home a penalty at the weekend to pick them up other points.
Predictably, social media was going wild for the youngster and his efforts, and we’ve collected some of the best reactions below.

I don’t dispute Reece James is a quality player and should be starting for Chelsea but mason mount has been very overhyped this season, many championship fans will agree with me

What a win that is. We might be 20th in league but Reece James is head and shoulders above any player in this league by far #wafc

Wigan manager Paul Cook, deflecting the credit for Reece James' improvement this season: "Reece would grow under the worst manager in the country. "
