Manchester City vs. Wigan Athletic  1 - 0

General Game Stats Chart


Minute   Description
90' +4 J. McCarthy gets yellow.
Tevez aims for the far corner with his free kick but the effort sails harmlessly wide. Regardless, that is that as the referee calls time on proceedings - Manchester City earn a slightly fortuitous three points here at the Etihad!
90' +2 The Latics look bereft of ideas as we approach the final minute of added time. Kolarov earns a free kick on the edge of the area as he marauds forward from left-back with McCarthy bringing him down. Tevez limbers up to take it as time runs out on Wigan's hopes of earning something from tonight's game.
90' +1 The Citizens keep the ball in the corner as they look to see out this game. Milner puts the ball behind for a goal kick though and Joel clears, let's see if Wigan can make something happen in the dying stages.
89' R. Espinoza enters the game and replaces S. Maloney.
City have Wigan hemmed in as we approach the final whistle here. Sinclair receives the ball out on the right wing and his cross is deflected behind for a corner.
88' City almost capitalise on Wigan's attempts to get an equaliser as they counter down the right through Milner. The winger attempts to find Dzeko in the middle but his through-ball is slightly too heavy and it runs through to Joel.
87' Wigan attempt to push forward after that goal but, frankly, they look shellshocked. They've dominated proceedings for much of this contest but look likely to go home with nothing unless they can come up with something in the final few minutes here.
84' J. McArthur enters the game and replaces Jordi Gómez.
83' C. Tevez has scored a goal for Manchester City! Assist by A. Kolarov.
S. Sinclair enters the game and replaces M. Richards.
Tevez opens the scoring with a lovely finish! Out of nowhere, the Argentine picks up the ball on the edge of the area from Kolarov. He shimmies past Scharner and Gomez with some lovely footwork before placing the ball past the helpless Joel into the top corner. An excellent goal that leaves Wigan ruing their missed opportunities.
82' Scharner hits the bar with a header from a Maloney free kick but he is correctly ruled offside anyway; the home support's hearts will have been in their mouths there.
81' Scott Sinclair limbers up on the sideline as he prepares for a rare outing; he is set to come on for right-back Richards as Mancini goes in search of a late winner.
