JOE HART: Surprisingly preferred to Costel Pantilimon. Had little to do in the regular 90 minutes and could do nothing about Ben Watson's fine injury-time header - 6/10.
GAEL CLICHY: The Frenchman was given a torrid time by Callum McManaman and offered little going forward - 5.
PABLO ZABALETA: Roger Espinoza was a real threat on the left for Wigan and Zabaleta was slightly fortunate to get away with a lunge on the Honduran in the area. Booked for a foul on McManaman and given a second yellow for felling the forward in the 84th minute - 5.
VINCENT KOMPANY: It was a good tussle between the City captain and Arouna Kone, with both coming out of it with credit - 7.
MATIJA NASTASIC: Caught out by an early Callum McManaman run but otherwise looked assured. Booked for a foul on the striker - 6.
YAYA TOURE: The midfielder, City's matchwinner two years ago, had a good early shot turned away by Joel Robles but was otherwise disappointing - 5.
SAMIR NASRI: Some nice link-up play and a good shot saved by Robles but not in the game enough and substituted early - 5.
GARETH BARRY: Produced a timely tackle to prevent James McArthur getting a shot on goal. Kept Shaun Maloney quite quiet - 6.
DAVID SILVA: Neat and tidy with his passing but not the creative force he can be - 6.
CARLOS TEVEZ: Looked a threat and denied by one superb save by Robles where he probably should have scored - 6.
SERGIO AGUERO: Would have scored at the start of the second half but for the intervention of Emmerson Boyce, and too quiet for City's liking - 6.
JAMES MILNER (for Nasri, 54): Made a couple of forays down the right but could not change the momentum - 5.
JACK RODWELL (for Tevez, 69): One header on target - 5.
EDIN DZEKO (for Barry, 90): Too late to make an impression - 5.
JOEL ROBLES: The on-loan Spaniard has established himself as Wigan number one and he showed with his three brilliant first-half saves, in particular one with his feet from Tevez - 8.
EMMERSON BOYCE: The Latics' longest-serving player captained the side and was a solid presence in the heart of defence - 7.
ROGER ESPINOZA: Espinoza produced a terrifically energetic display as left wing-back and might have won a penalty - 8.
PAUL SCHARNER: The Austrian looked more comfortable in a back five but still showed a tendency to give the ball away dangerously and cheaply. Some fine clearances - 6.
ANTOLIN ALCARAZ: The return of the classy Paraguayan from injury was a huge boost for Wigan and he was a key factor in their improved defensive display - 7.
JORDI GOMEZ: Not as much of an attacking presence as sometimes but helped out his defence well - 6.
JAMES McCARTHY: The midfielder is rumoured to be on the radar of bigger clubs and he gave an assured display - 6.
JAMES McARTHUR: Playing in an unfamiliar right wing-back role, McArthur handled the challenge well - 6.
SHAUN MALONEY: Wigan's best player this season was not the force he can be but still sparkled at times and set up their winner - 6.
AROUNA KONE: The striker faded after a superb start but was always an outlet - 7.
CALLUM McMANAMAN: The 22-year-old was the star of the show, tormenting City all through the game. His display was only missing a goal - 9.
BEN WATSON (for Gomez, 81): Proved to be Wigan's hero with a fine header into the top corner - 7.
