There is a famous song here about the man who has just scorched Manchester City’s hopes of a quadruple. And in the closing moments here it is doubtful if “Will Grigg’s on fire” has ever reverberated around this stadium with greater noise. City were on their way out of the FA Cup and, once again, it was Wigan – little, patronised Wigan – who had left the most expensively assembled group of players in English football history in a state of disrepair.
They will talk about Grigg firing in his dramatic, 79th-minute goal with almost as much fondness in Wigan as that never-forgotten moment when Ben Watson’s header against the same opponents in the 2013 final gave Wigan the greatest victory of their entire history.
