PRE-MATCH BUILD UP

Paul Cook's Wigan Athletic are all set to test themselves against arguably the best team in world football on Monday evening, when Pep Guardiola's Manchester City visit the DW Stadium for the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The recent history between Latics and City has been well documented in the build-up to kick off, with Latics looking to make it three in a row against their north-west neighbours after famous victories in the 2013 FA Cup final and the 2014 quarter final at the Etihad Stadium.

That aside, the game promises to be enthralling regardless, as two of the statistically highest performing teams in English football go head-to-head for a place against Southampton in the quarter final.

City arrive in Wigan fighting on four fronts and with one eye of the Carabao Cup final against Arsenal next Sunday, having already put themselves in comfortable positions in the Premier League and Champions League.

Latics also have their sights set firmly on silverware come May, with Cook's men one point behind Sky Bet League One leaders Shrewsbury Town with two games in hand, and looking to use this fixture as added motivation for their league campaign.

EMIRATES FA CUP MATCH REPORT: WIGAN ATHLETIC 1-0 MANCHESTER CITY

19 February 2018

Will Grigg on fire to secure famous DW Stadium victory against Manchester City in the Emirates FA Cup.

  • Match Report: Wigan Athletic v Manchester City.
  • Will Grigg netted late on to secure famous DW Stadium victory.
  • Latics to face Southampton at home in the quarter-final of the Emirates FA Cup.

WIGAN ATHLETIC 1
Grigg 79

MANCHESTER CITY 0

Will Grigg’s second half strike proved the difference at the DW Stadium this evening as Latics recorded a memorable Emirates FA Cup victory over Manchester City.

The Northern Ireland international raced into the area under pressure from two City defenders and slotted the ball calmly past Claudio Bravo.

Left back Fabian Delph was shown a straight red card by referee Anthony Taylor in first half injury time for a late challenge on Max Power.

Latics made three changes to the side that lost at home to Blackpool last Tuesday evening, with Callum Elder, David Perkins and Gary Roberts all starting.

The visitors started the game well and Bernardo Silva’s teasing cross from the right was met by the head of Sergio Aguero in the box but the Argentinian header over.

Ilkay Gündogan later broke forward from midfield for City and tested goalkeeper Christian Walton with a low range strike from distance.

Grigg responded for Latics when he dazzled John Stones and burst into the area only to fire agonizingly into the side netting from a tight angle.

Nick Powell was then denied by a last-ditch challenge inside the area before the former Manchester United man was substituted through injury midway through the half, Jay Fulton on in his place.

At the other end, Fernandinho wasted a golden opportunity for his side when he blazed over from close range, while Danilo’s long range shot flew wide of the post.

Latics were indebted to Walton before the break as he superbly denied Aguero from opening the scoring with a fine finger-tip save around the post.

City were reduced to 10 men on the stroke of half time when Delph was given his marching orders for a late challenge on Power.

Danilo broke free down the left for the visitors at the start of the period, but was denied expertly by Chey Dunkley who blocked his effort.

For Latics, Grigg did well to meet Gavin Massey’s inviting ball down the right, only to be intercepted by Stones at the final moment.

Pep Guardiola’s men were forcing Latics back, but the home defence, marshalled by captain Dan Burn, were throwing their bodies on the line.

The deadlock was broken on 79 minutes as Grigg bullied his way through the City defence to slot home in emphatic fashion to send the crowd into raptures.

Latics held on superbly to deny City to claim their third Barclays Premier League scalp of the competition having already beaten AFC Bournemouth and West Ham United.

Latics: Walton, Byrne, Elder, Perkins, Power, Grigg, Massey (Colclough 76), Roberts (Jacobs 54), Dunkley, Powell (Fulton 27), Burn
