Date and time set for Wigan vs. Manchester City in FA Cup fifth round

Manchester City will travel to Wigan Athletic’s DW Stadium on a Monday night for their FA Cup fifth round tie in February.

The date of the match has been confirmed as Monday 19 February with kick-off at 7.55pm.

Wigan have a recent FA Cup hoodoo over the Blues. In the 2013 cup final, in what turned out to be Roberto Mancini’s final game in charge, calamity struck as Wigan pulled off a huge upset at Wembley to beat City.

A year later, Wigan visted the Etihad and again shocked Manuel Pellegrini’s Blues with a 2-1 win.

Pep Guardiola’s men now have a chance to avenge those two losses in February and progress further into the FA Cup in doing so.
