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.

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.
