WIGAN VS MANCHESTER CITY

LEAGUE FA CUP FIFTH ROUND
 DATE 19-02-2018 

TIME 2255 GMT+3 

VENUE DW STADIUM

Wigan and Manchester City face off in yet another entertaining clash. Wigan have repeatedly frustrated city in recent meetings but we expect city to stage a show down against them in what is expected to be an entertaining match. Wigan already knocked out   a premier league side on the fourth round, Bournemouth after beating them 3-0 at home. City on the other hand are in a good run of form as they have gone seven matches unbeaten winning six of them.

Wigan have suffered two consecutive defeats in the league and this has seen them lose their top position in the league one. despite this, they have a game in hand and are only one point behind Shrewsbury united.

Manchester city are a good side this season and are also top in the premier league. City are expected to win this match comfortably though we expect Wigan to play a high defensive line at the back to try and stop city from scoring goals.
