Wigan Athletic will be hoping to spring a surprise on Manchester City when the two teams meet in their next Premier League encounter on Sunday. Watch every second of live Premiership action by signing up with us here on Live Sport Network.
City are off to an excellent start this season and there are already talks of the club challenging for the league title. The Citizens are currently fourth in the league table with 16 points from seven games, just five points behind league leaders Chelsea with a game in hand.
While City are expected to register a comfortable victory over Wigan this weekend, manager Mark Hughes will be keen to quash any complacency among his players as he looks to build on their excellent start to the season.
City almost fell victims to the raised expectation as they came away with just a point away to Aston Villa in their last game. Richard Dunne opened the scoring early in the 15th minute as City struggled to stamp their authority on the game. Just when it looked like they were heading towards a defeat, Craig Bellamy scored another brilliant goal to rescue a point for his side. Hughes will be without a number of his key players with Robinho out of action while Pablo Zabaleta, Kolo Toure and Joleon Lescott all are a major doubt for the game.
There are no such injury concerns for Wigan Athletic who will be looking to take full advantage of their underdog status and spring a surprise should City relax during the game. While Wigan have not yet shown any form of consistency, manager Roberto Martinez will be happy with his side's start that has seen them collect nine points from their first eight games and sit near the top half of the league table.
Wigan suffered their fifth defeat of the season away to Hull City last weekend with Jan Vennegoor and Geovanni scoring for the Tigers while Scott Sinclair managed to reduce the deficit late in the game. Watch all the live Premier League action here on Live Sport Network.
