Wigan Dump Manchester City Out Of FA Cup

Published

Manchester City’s hopes of winning the quadruple have been ended by Wigan Athletic, who eliminated the Premier League champions from the FA Cup with a 1-0 win on Monday.

This Is The third time Wigan Have defeated Manchester City In The Tournament

Will Grigg stunned the visitors with a brilliant 79th-minute low drive that beat the outstretched hand of Claudio Bravo.

City had lost just once against English opposition all season – the 4-3 defeat at title rivals Liverpool.

But Wigan, who are second in League One and more focused on securing promotion back to the Championship, inflicted a bigger damage to Pep Guardiola’s ambition in their fifth round clash on Monday.

The host sensed their chance when City were reduced to 10 men, as Fabian Delph was controversially sent off for a high challenge on Max Power.

Wigan will play Southampton in the next round.
