A terrific backs to the wall performance was required and delivered by City defending as a unit against a strong Wigan side following Richard Dunne's 4th suicidal sending off inside two years. His City days and certainly captaincy days could well be numbered. But special shouts go out to Pablo Zabaleta, Nedum Onouha and Robinho for their hard work and non stop team efforts in an all round team rearguard action.

If 8th place Hull fail to beat The Arsenal, we will be 3pts off them with a game in hand. Dare we start to look up?

City can do it. The gutsy 10-man display against Wigan was the performance of a Hughes side. His signings Zabaleta, SWP and Kompany were the best on the pitch. But also there were great signs from Elano and Robinho. It is as if he is settling into his role. Yes, he was tracking back and even the odd tackle... But every time he had the ball you just knew he would find Robinho with a pass. And his passing was superb. Dunney gets his rest now, whether he wanted it or not. Onuoha's big chance?
