Johnny On The Spot: A potentially crucial, hard fought three points have been won at Wigan in dreadful playing conditions. Capitaine Tevez led from the front quite literally, as The Blues began to learn how to deal with opponents of Wigan's physicality. With at least half this league playing in a similar style, a repeat of the resuts against Sunderland and Blackburn was out of the question. City now go into the seismic clash against Chelsea at Eastlands next weekend in the Champions League positions and top of our Europa League group. It's slowly coming together.

Wigan are shockingly bad and we didn't play too well really. The pitch, the referee giving them every 50/50, and a slight lack of creativity (aside from the excellent Silva) could have led to the usual frustrations but thankfully we got the goals we needed. Silva is the best passer we've had at the club in many years and Tevez was back to his best.

Great result, just what was needed. Into 4th place, with plenty of time to catch everyone above us.

Tevez clearly man of the match for me, he didn't lose many balls, took hi goals superbly and had an "assist"

Just what was needed. Ruthless, composed performance. Tevez was immense. Midfield three were also solid.

That Probert is not fit to referee. He was utterly abysmall today (and last week in the Villa match too). He got just about everything wrong today so I ask you - WTF is he doing refereeing Premier League Games? Well done to City on a good solid and professional performance in the face of crap officials and even worse conditions. Message to Dave Whelan - sack your groundsman, that pitch was more suited to water polo!

FCB wigans pitch is always disgusting, most things about them are at the moment. Was probert the ref at the stoke game aswell? He was alryt, he only gave 1 bad decision away which was hard too see, im talkin of the pennant dive. Good result for city considerin it was away and the conditions at the DW are atrocious.

At least Probert didn't high-five a player after the final whistle as Clattenberg did at Chelsea with Drogba yesterday!
