Man City v Wigan


Wigan v Manchester City Past Meetings

This will be the 25th competitive fixture between the two clubs, with Man City ahead on the head-to-head record with 13 wins compared to Wigan’s seven.

The most well-remembered fixture between these two came in 2013, when the Latics defeated City in the FA Cup final thanks to Ben Watson’s last gasp header.

The last clash between the sides came in 2014, when goals from Jordi Gomez and James Perch saw the then second tier side triumph 2-1 at the Etihad Stadium in the FA Cup Fourth Round.


Wigan v Manchester City Stats

Wigan sit second in League One but have lost each of their last two matches following on from an unbeaten run of 16 matches in all competitions, with just five league defeats in total this season.

Their only two league defeat at the DW Stadium came at the hands of Bradford City in November and Blackpool in their last outing, and prior to their two defeats had conceded just one goal in nine.

They have the second best attack (56 goals scored) and best defence (18 goals conceded) in the third tier and to reach this stage, they defeated Crawley Town, Fylde, Bournemouth and West Ham United.

Manchester City have only lost one domestic match this season – a league game against Liverpool last month and sit 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Pep Guardiola’s side have 72 points from their 27 league games and are on course to secure their first league title in four years.

To reach this stage, they defeated Burnley and Cardiff City.


Wigan v Manchester City Team News

The Latics are expected to line-up in their usual 4-2-3-1 formation, with Northern Ireland international striker Will Grigg – who scored two goals against West Ham – expected to lead the line.

Yaya Toure (illness) is a doubt for City while Gabriel Jesus (MCL knee ligament) may return, but Benjamin Mendy (ACL knee) remains a long-term absentee.


Reason for Wigan v Manchester City Bets

Despite recent back-to-back defeats, Wigan are in fantastic form in the third tier this season and possess home advantage, a well-drilled defence and an attack which can score freely.

However, City will be strong favourites for this game due to their form all season long, where they rarely look like slipping up against top tier opposition never mind a lower league side.

It may not be quite a procession due to City rotating and Wigan being buoyed to raise their performance level for a one-off cup tie.

City have only kept two clean sheets in their last ten domestic games and Wigan have the best attack in the third tier, so both teams to score at odds of 5/4 has sound value.

It is impossible to look past a City victory but a strong showing from the home side and one goal is not to be unexpected.
