Recent respective form guides

Wigan Athletic need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Latics have scored 5, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Manchester City's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Only 4 goals have been registered in this time, with 6 leaked at the wrong end.

Wigan Athletic find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 20 games have yielded only 15 points.

Manchester City are leading the way in the Barclays Premier League, with their 20 games giving them a return of 48 points.
