image for Manchester City Lose Again
Pie-eaters 2 City 1

There was more penalty controversy at the JJB Stadium this afternoon as Wigan Athletic overcame their richer and more illustrious opponents, Manchester City, in a thrilling game which saw the Latics run out 2-1 winners.

Valencia and Zaki, from the dubious penalty, scored for Wigan, with a Vincent Kompany goal sandwiched in-between.

It was City's second defeat in a week, and things are starting to look desperate for manager Mark Hughes, as he tries to impress the new Arab owners, and convince them that their cash has not been wasted.

Abu Dhabi United Group bought City for around £200million earlier this month, and saw them lose to lowly League One side Brighton in the Carling Cup last Wednesday.

The Arabs are not known for having much patience, and today's defeat is certain to try that patience to its limit. The first person to suffer could be manager Hughes, who only arrived from Blackburn in the summer.

Hughes told reporters after the match:

"I'm still embarrassed after Brighton, and my sphincter was twitching again today!"
