Watch: Sergio Aguero Hits Wigan Fan During Post-Match Pitch Invasion
Manchester City's shock exit from the FA Cup at the hands of League One's Wigan Athletic tonight was full of drama during and after the game, with Pep Guardiola losing the plot after Fabian Delph's sending off and Sergio Aguero being caught on camera appearing to strike a Wigan fan in the face after the final whistle.
A second half Will Grigg strike secured Wigan's passage into the quarter-finals, meaning the chances of a historic quadruple is now off the table for Guardiola's runaway Premier League leaders, and some members of City's squad did not take kindly to the post-match pitch invasion by delirious Latics fans, celebrating yet another cup upset over their North West neighbours, after beating them in the competition in the final in 2013 and the quarter-finals in 2014.
At one point, BBC cameras picked up an incensed Sergio Aguero appearing to strike a Wigan fan in the face.
Got to be honest, though, feels like there's a few too many bad grasses on Twitter.

Aguero with retrospective ban for punching a fan? Regardless what the fan said there's no business throwing a fist. #WIGMCI #AgueroPunch #Aguero pic.twitter.com/7XiBha6TbC

Looked like Aguero chinned a fan there. Am no a grass but that should be a 7 match ban and a goal headstart for Arsenal on Sunday @FA

Oh and, just for good measure, here's that picture of Josh, SPORTbible's resident City fan, again. Because we absolutely need to lord this upset over him for a little while longer. Soz, m8.
What do you make of the incident? Should Aguero face FA punishment for his actions and should Pep Guardiola be punished for his own heated incident at half-time?
