Wigan stun Man City in the FA Cup
Monday was a great night for Manchester United.
Along with Tottenham and Chelsea, Man United will now be fancying their chances of winning this season’s FA Cup.
That’s after Wigan pulled off one of the shocks of the season beating Man City 1-0 in the fifth round.
Will Grigg was the hero for the Latics, as Wigan booked a quarterfinal date with Southampton.
Pep Guardiola ‘lost it’ after Fabian Delph
One of the big talking points from the match was the red card served to Fabian Delph.
Delph took out Wigan’s Max Power with a horrible tackle just before the interval.
Referee Anthony Taylor eventually sent off the Man City fill-in left-back, but only after Taylor lead everyone to believe Delph would only receive a yellow.
Did Wigan’s players unduly pressure the referee into drawing his red card?
Most agree that at the end of the day Delph’s dismissal was the right decision, however Pep Guardiola found the whole incident hard to watch on the sidelines.
Indeed, as the teams went into the locker room at the break, Guardiola got into a confrontation in the tunnel.

Man United & Arsenal fans call for Guardiola to be banned
What would the landscape look like today had it been Jose Mourinho, and not Pep Guardiola, who reacted in such a manner?
Man United fans have taken to social media to compare how their boss is treated compared to City’s Guardiola.
And some Arsenal fans have added their voices to the ‘Guardiola ban’ campaign.
That’s after Gunners boss Arsene Wenger was banned from the sidelines for kicking a water bottle.
Do the Man United and Arsenal fans have a point?

Everything has gone Guardiola’s way this season. That’s why the media has forgotten what a dick he was last season when it didn’t. It’s easy to be smiley and pleasant when you win every week. Little glimpse in to what Guardiola is like when something goes against him there 😡😂

– Aguero slapped a Wigan fan.
– Guardiola shoved the referee.
– City fans threw cardboard at police.
Hope you're watching, FA.

Guardiola is a hypocrite. That’s the exact type of tackle he’s been campaigning for the FA/Premier League to protect his players against.
