Altercation As City Lose To Wigan In FA Cup
Manchester City’s hopes of a quadruple have been smashed by Wigan Athletic as they defeated The Cityzens on Monday in the fifth round FA Cup tie. City are still the leaders in the Premier League and are favourites to lift the title in May. They are facing Arsenal this weekend for a chance to win the EFL Carabao Cup. They have one foot in the quarter final stage of the Champions League. These means City can still fight for a treble this term.
Eventually Wigan scored to win the game in the 79th minute and when the referee blew the final whistle, the police could not handle a pitch invasion. There were ugly scenes and Sergio Aguero clashed with a Wigan supporter. The Argentina international seemed to lash out at a man and there are online reports that he kicked a ball boy. Supports threw an advertising board at the police as they tried to get onto the pitch.
Wigan has confirmed there will be an investigation into the post match troubles. The FA and the police are also investigating what really transpired so more reactions are expected with time. For now the police claim they have made two arrests and that investigation continue.
