Wigan add Man City to other top flight scalps (Bournemouth, West Ham)

Will Grigg became the top scorer in this season’s FA Cup as his goal helped Wigan upset Man City at the DW. Paul Cook’s men have now upset three top tier teams, with Manchester City their latest victims after their previous triumphs against AFC Bournemouth and West Ham United.

The stats favoured league leaders City, who had 83% of the ball and 26 shots to WAFC’s 4, but Wigan, who beat them in the 2013 final, will now host a last eight clash against Southampton. The Latics, currently in League One, are only the second team after Millwall from outside the top two divisions to beat three or more Premier League sides in the same Cup campaign.

All conquering Man City have now been held goalless by three teams this season across all competitions- Wolves, Crystal Palace and now Wigan Athletic.

Aguero Wigan
