City were put in a hard position in the contest, thanks to a red card Fabian Delph in stoppage time of the first half, which left manager Pep Guardiola fuming.

Manchester City and Sergio Aguero are considering legal action against the Wigan fan they allege attacked and insulted the striker following Monday night's ill-tempered FA Cup clash.

"We certainly wish them well fighting on all fronts because they represent English football so well".

In the end, against a multi-millionaire City side reduced to 10 men for the entire second half, he needed only 11 to achieve the unthinkable and win 1-0 on one of the greatest nights in the third tier club's Cup history.

"We had to ride our luck with a couple of flashing crosses, but that's what makes the FA Cup so special", Cook said.

Chelsea and Barcelona are set to go head to head in a highly-anticipated Champions League last 16 first-leg clash at Stamford Bridge, with Premier League champions Chelsea heading into proceedings having put a dismal run of form behind them with resounding victories over West Brom and Hull City respectively over the last week.

He added: "If that would have been one of my players against a City player, they would have gone ballistic at us for a red card."

The decision not to charge the City forward was made after consideration of the match referee's report and all available footage of events on the pitch and in the tunnel area at half-time and full-time.

Earlier, tempers threatened to boil over between both sets of players and their coaching staff when City left-back Fabian Delph was sent off for a rash lunge on Max Power in first-half stoppage time - a challenge that will rule the England global out of Sunday's EFL Cup final against Arsenal. From our point of view we're trying to get every edge in everything we can. It is never nice to see.

Fans spilled onto the pitch as the hosts celebrated their win. "I thought we were dominant and should have come out with something else".

Sergio Aguero's conduct will be investigated by the FA.

The FA are likely to look at Wigan's failure to prevent home fans from entering the pitch and the lack of protection afforded to players at the final whistle.

One fan attempted to punch the striker, but Aguero brushed him away before Wigan defender Cheyenne Dunkley, City coach Mikel Arteta and physiotherapist Steven Lilley rushed to the Argentine's aid.

A heavy police presence was required to contain the agitated City fans, who threw an advertising hoarding towards the pitch which struck an officer.
