Well, well, well.
Wigan survived the opening 45 minutes of their FA Cup clash against Premier League leaders Manchester City.
In fact, the Latics had a few chances to score, all the while keeping Pep Guardiola’s table-toppers out with some fine defending.
But the biggest talking point by-far was the bizarre red card decision on the final minute of the half.
With the opening-half winding down, Fabian Delph slid-in on the brilliantly named Max Power, sending the midfielder flying.
As you’d expect, the home fans weren’t too happy with the tackle, while Wigan’s players immediately surrounded the City left-back and seemingly demanded the referee send him off.
We’re not too sure, though.
Delph definitely got a lot of the ball and caught Power, but it didn’t look two-footed, it wasn’t particularly high and there was no malice in the challenge.
What’s weird is that referee Anthony Taylor initially went for a yellow card, which was clearly in his hand, but then seemingly had a change of heart and opted for the red.
What do you think?
Pep, understandably, was furious, and could be seen clashing with Wigan boss Paul Cook on the sidelines and in the tunnel afterwards.
Fiery stuff, as it’s clear the handsome Catalan thinks that Cook’s side bullied the referee into going for the red.
Ah, controversy. The magic of the Cup, eh?
