Wigan moved out of the relegation zone with a 3-0 win at Aston Villa on Saturday in the Premier League.

Ivan Ramis put the visitors ahead in the third minute by heading in a corner from Jean Beausejour, and struggling Villa never recovered.

Emmerson Boyce and Arouna Kone added goals within a four-minute span after the break for Wigan, which climbed above Villa into 16th place in the standings.

Villa is still just above the relegation zone, one point ahead of Southampton.
