Wigan stuns Manchester City in FA Cup fifth round


Wigan ended Manchester City’s hopes of winning a quadruple with a shock 1-0 win in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Monday.

Will Grigg scored the winner for the League One side in the 79th minute when he finished brilliantly from the edge of the box.

City dominated the match, having 29 shots and 83 per cent of the possession, despite Fabian Delph being controversially sent off at the end of the first half for a high tackle on Max Power.

Wigan have now beaten Manchester City each of the last three times they’ve played them in the FA Cup – also doing so in the 2013 final and the 2014 quarter-final.

Manchester City will face Arsenal in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday and then travel to the Emirates to take on the Gunners in the Premier League on Thursday.
