Manchester City’s dream of completing only the second ever quadruple in football history ended on Monday evening when they lost 1-0 to League One side Wigan Athletic.
City were reduced to 10-men just before half time after Fabian Delph was shown a straight red in an incident that led to a heated argument between Pep Guardiola and Wigan boss Paul Cook.
Will Grigg then netted the winning goal 11 minutes from time against the run of play and Wigan held on to pull off one of the biggest shocks of the season so far.
Naturally, the result prompted lots of online reaction,

Even City players and fans reacted to the defeat, although it is fair to say that they were provoked by the Wigan fans.

So Man City fans lose a game of football and all kick off and throw advertising hoardings at police officers because Wigan taunt them…. ?

Some City fans tried to stay positive.
Manchester City are 16 points clear in the Premier League, virtually through to the next round of the Champions League and are in a League Cup Final this weekend. Losing to Wigan does not undermine their achievements thus far. Plenty more success to come their way!
