Not exactly a pulsating game nevertheless, three points gained which means City remain in third, four points behind Arsenal. Meanwhile Wigan end the day at the foot of the Premier League table.

Another very lacklustre performance, but 3 points is 3 points. Fair play to Wigan, they gave it a right good go second half and perhaps unlucky not to nick a point. Mancini looked livid, he needs to put a rocket up their arses. No disrespect intended but we really should be beating teams like Wigan a lot more comfortably at home.

Wigan deserved a point. Don't know where the stats come from as there's no way they had 56% possession. Maybe Summerbee will have something to say about those stats...

There won't be much training done prior to the flight to Kiev, that's for sure.
