The Magic of the Cup- Man City dominate possession and stats but lose to Wigan

By | February 19, 2018

Man City’s dreams of a quadruple were ended at the DW Stadium by third tier Wigan Athletic, who added Pep Guardiola’s side to their list of top flight conquests- they’ve already sent Wigan and West Ham out of the tournament, and have become the second team outside the top two divisions to beat three PL sides in the same FA Cup season (Millwall were the first one!)

City bossed possession and shots- they had 83% of the ball despite playing an entire half with ten men, and had six times as many shots as Wigan (26 to 4), but still ended on the losing side

Pep Guardiola will be hoping that this performance does not affect their upcoming League Cup final against Arsenal, with Arsene Wenger’s side edging London rivals Chelsea to book a meeting with City.
