Wigan stun Man City in FA Cup

Wigan ended 10-man Manchester City's hopes of 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 otherwise 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.Referee Anthony Taylor initially looked to give a yellow card but then switched to a red, and the incident sparked a furious half-time clash between Pep Guardiola and his opposite number Paul Cook in the tunnel at half-time.

There were also ugly scenes at the final whistle involving fans from both clubs as City crashed out of their first competition this season.
