Manchester City’s Monday is surprisingly eliminated in the FA Cup. The team of coach Josep Guardiola went with ten men at under at Wigan Athletic: 1-0. Will Grigg made the final the only goal.
The leader of the Premier League came against the number two of League One without star player Kevin De Bruyne, but with other toppers as Sergio Agüero and David Silva. The team was also by far the most ball possession, but created few great chances.
Just before half had City with a man less further, after a hard charge of full-Fabian Delph with red was punished. Even with ten man City the better, but after fumbling around of Kyle Walker shot Grigg twelve minutes before time, the opening goal within.
It was already the seventh hit in the FA Cup for the international of Northern Ireland, that despite the fact that he is the last world CHAMPIONSHIP, not a minute played, a cult managed to build.
Manchester City is not the only topploeg that blameerde in the fifth round of the FA Cup. Tottenham Hotspur wait for a replay after the draw at Rochdale while Swansea still need to play against Sheffield Wednesday.
Leicester City, Chelsea, Brighton & Hove Albion, Southampton and Manchester United knew already to qualify for the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
