FA Cup winners Wigan Athletic have again beaten Manchester City in the venerable English football competition.

City couldn't avenge their shock 1-0 defeat to Wigan in last season's final, going down 2-1 in a shock defeat at the Etihad Stadium.

Second division Wigan now face another Premier League heavyweight in the semi-finals when they take on Arsenal, who knocked out Everton on the weekend to remain on course to finally end their nine-year trophy drought.

Sheffield United also continued their remarkable FA Cup journey, the third-tier Blades upsetting second division Charlton Athletic 2-0 to reach the semis, where they'll play Hull City, who thrashed Sunderland 3-nil to book their spot at Wembley.
