  • Wigan have failed to scored a single goal in each of their last seven meetings with the Citizens (all in the league), losing each of those games.
  • Carlos Tevez has netted seven goals in 12 appearances against the Latics (all in the Premier League).
  • City have won 10 of their last 11 FA Cup matches, keeping clean sheets in nine of those games and losing just one.
