FA Cup results: Arsenal closer to trophy, Manchester City out

Manchester City lost plot as they concede to Championship outfit Wigan Athletic for the second time in a year. Arsene Wenger is just two steps away from first glory in nine years after beating Everton at Emirates.

Manchester City effectively ended their quest for quadruple after a humble night ast Etihad against Wigan Athletic. The Latics, who beat City in last year’s final, produced classy defensive performance and managed to beat Costel Pantilimon twice. Jordi Gomez scored from the spot on 27 minutes and James Perch netted in a counter-attack minutes after the break. Samir Nasri pulled one back on 68 minutes, but Wigan stood strong to keep a sensational victory against Premier League title contenders and book a meeting with Arsenal.

The Gunners beat Everton by 4-1, courtesy of Mesut Ozil, Mikel Arteta (penalty) and a late brace from substitute Olivier Giroud. Romelu Lukaku scored the only goal for The Toffees. Arsene Wenger’s way to his first silverware since 2005 is now all but in his hands with semifinal tie against Wigan Athletic and possible final versus Hull City or League One side Sheffield United.

Curtis Davies, David Meyler and Matt Fryatt scored for The Tigers as they outclassed Sunderland. Ryan Flynn and John Brayford netted for Sheffield United in a 2-0 victory over Championship strugglers Charlton Athletic.
