Wigan Athletic’s astonishing 1-0 FA Cup fifth-round win over Premier League leaders Manchester City, secured with minimal possession on Monday night, is being celebrated up and down the land.
The huge underdogs’ victory, and subsequent pitch invasion that saw Sergio Agüero clash with a fan, has kept the magic of the cup alive in many a football fan’s heart.
These are the best of the jokes after Wigan 1-0 Man City:

Sergio Aguero, one of the best strikers English football has ever seen resorting to offering out people from Wigan. Magic of the FA Cup will never die.

Going by Twitter, it would appear that the best thing that's happened to basically all our rivals this year is us losing against Wigan.

You just know for a fact that at least one Wigan fan has dialled 999, asked for the fire brigade and said something about needing help because Will Grigg is on fire and is now at home sitting there proper chuffed with himself.
