Wigan Athletic Beat Manchester City In The FA Cup. Again
Stop me if you've heard this before, but Wigan Athletic have upset Manchester City in the FA Cup.
A fantastic second half effort by Will Grigg saw the Latics secure a spot in the quarter-finals with yet another historic victory over their wealthy North West neighbours.
Wigan famously defeated City 1-0 with a last gasp Ben Watson winner in the 2013 FA Cup final before eliminating them from the competition again, a year later.
And now Paul Cook's men have completed a legendary hat-trick by dumping Pep Guardiola's runaway Premier League leaders out in the fifth round.
City were reduced to 10 men after Fabian Delph was sent off just before half-time in an incident that caused Guardiola to lose the fucking plot in the tunnel at half-time, like a pissed bloke in the pub.

Then, enter Will Grigg to terrify City's 12 billion quid defence.

And, for good measure, here's a picture of Josh Lawless, the sole City fan on SPORTbible's team, who we plan on tormenting about this result all week long.
Not even sorry, Josh, mate.
