- Yellow cardMax PowerWigan Athletic
Power in the book for timewasting.
There are four minutes to come, at least.
Aguero gets to the touchline, but slices his effort behind.
Byrne could shepherd out a cross from the right, but he gets no help and takes the safety first option, putting it behind for a corner. It comes to nothing.
De Bruyne flings in a cross to the near post that Burn heads out. Byrne then sends the ball long to Bravo.
Fulton charges down a long-range Danilo shot. City have it back quickly.
Fernandinho puts the ball in the net from a De Bruyne free kick, but the linesman flags for offside. The ref wants it taken again for another reason, but it ends with a weak sock from Bernardo, dribbling to the 'keeper.
Walton is the fourth Wigan player booked, this time for time wasting.
You can hear the Will Grigg song if you listen carefully.
- GoalWill GriggWigan Athletic
GOAL! Wigan Athetic 1-0 Manchester City. Grigg scores - Grigg is released down the inside left. Walker lifts his foot off the ball and allows Grigg a free run. The striker fires a low shot from the edge of the box past Bravo.

Aguero then clips a De Bruyne free kick across the face of goal, but there's nobody close enough at the back post to take advantage.
De Bruyne darts into the box and sends a low shot into a defender's legs. The pressure is growing, despite the man-advantage Wigan have.
Gundogan backheels for Danilo's run into the box, the full back drives it across goal, and Aguero is just too far away.

Elder brings the ball away from the box after collecting a knock-on, but misjudges his touch and ends up cleaning out Bernardo with a sliding tackle in a panic. That's a yellow.

Gundogan lifts a cross well over Aguero, nd Byrne picks it up to run down the wing.

A change, as we restart.
- End of 1st Half
That's half time. See you in 15 minutes.
- Red cardFabian DelphManchester City
RED CARD! Power breaks from deep, and Delph flies into him with a wild lunge. It's not too awful, but the ref changes his mind and goes from yellow, to give a red card. Guardiola can't complain - all he talks about it protecting players.
Aguero takes a touch around a defender, leaving Burn behind, and into the box. He slams a shot across Walton, and he palms it behind for a corner.
City break with Sane, and as the ball is pulled back to Danilo, there are seemingly 40 Wigan shirts all on hand to tackle. Corner on the left, a low one which is desperately scrambled away after Walton mishandles.
Delph falls awkwardly after missing a high ball. He seems OK to continue.
An even affair on the whole. Certainly more even than would have ben expected. Are the wheels falling off the Guardiola campaign? No.
Massey is played in down the right, able to drive down the right hand side, before sending in a dreadful pass above everyone.
Danilo flicks a clever ball to Gundogan, who spins his marker, and fires a shot just over the crossbar from a tight angle.
Delph wallops a long range shot at Fulton, and the ball spins behind for another corner from the left.
Delph picks out Stones, lurking at the back post, who nods it down to Fernandinho, and he slices a volley miles over the bar. He should have scored, but Wigan hold on for now.
- OffNick PowellWigan Athletic
- OnJay FultonWigan Athletic
Fulton on for Powell, who has not been able to recover from that injury.
Sane gets to the byline, stands it up, but Perkins strains to reach it and puts it behind for a corner.
Powell is back on after a brief spell on the sidelines.
Powell has gone down in the centre circle. He's receiving treatment, but doesn't seem too concerned just yet.
Powell sets Roberts onto a race into the City half against Danilo and Fernandinho, but he can't outrun them, even briefly.
Byrne sprints forward, finds Powell, who swaps passes with Grigg into the box. It's an excellent, direct move, but ends with Powell finding a defender's shins.
Right, it now seems like it's all City. They seem pretty organised, but are sitting back very, very deeply.
We're now in that recognisable phase of the game, when they just keep the ball almost interminably.
Wigan keeping possession around City's half, ends with a long ball over the top.
An even affair so far, but not one that seems likely to end in a draw. Of course, not all of us are superforecasters, so feel free to ignore me.
Grigg is slipped in down the inside left, who scoots past Stones, and fires a rising shot into the side-netting. The crowd on one side of the stadium briefy think he's put them ahead.
Roberts has a chance to stab home from a poorly dealt with cross, but his shot is smothered quickly by Bravo - the whole chance came about due to a terrible clearance from Bravo earlier. De Bruyne slips in Gundogan, but he's quickly tackled.
Grigg holds up a high ball to win a foul from Laporte. Nothing comes from it.
Walton beats away a decent effort from Gundogan. The best chance of the game so far.
Free kick for Wigan as Danilo barges over Perkins on the halfway line.
Aguero meets an inswinging corner from the left, but it sends it a couple of yards over.

Manchester City or Wigan will face Sunderland should they emerge victorious from the tie. Kick off is just five minutes away.
Send any comments you have to @lxndrnthrtn.
Leroy Sane is back for Manchester City after months out with injury. A great chance to get him back to fitness.
