FA Cup holders Wigan Athletic proved Manchester City's nemesis for the second time in less than a year Sunday with a shock 2-1 quarter-final victory over Manuel Pellegrini's talent-laden side. Second-tier Wigan, who upset City 1-0 in the final at Wembley last May to secure the Cup for the first time, went ahead through Jordi Gomez and James Perch before holding off a rousing City fightback to set up a semi-final against Arsenal.Fourth in the Premier League, and needing to overturn a two-goal deficit at Barcelona in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie on Wednesday, City were strong favourites to negotiate the visit of Wigan. But the Championship side, managed by former City striker and terrace hero Uwe Rosler, executed a perfect game plan and capitalised on a tired City display to go 2-0 up after 46 minutes.City defender Martin Demichelis, under the spotlight after recent poor performances, gave away the penalty that allowed Wigan to take the lead in the 27th minute.It completed a disappointing week for Sunderland, who lost the League Cup final to Manchester City at Wembley last Sunday, but manager Gus Poyet will turn his full attention now to steering the club away from the Premier League relegation zone.
