Wigan boss Roberto Martinez claimed his team could have hurt Manchester City but instead they left the Etihad Stadium empty handed and feeling disappointed.

Sergiou Aguero grabbed a hat-trick and Carlos Tevez missed a penalty as City ran out worthy winners.

Martinez said…

‘I am disappointed with the performance. We showed them too much respect.’

‘With the quality they have on the pitch and the size of the squad will allow them to be competitive in every competition but in one game you are only playing against 11 bodies.’

‘We played the occasion too much, we played their squad, when we only had to focus on the 11 players in front of us. We could have hurt Man City a lot more.’

‘From our point of view it is a real lesson but we still did a few good things that we are going to take into future games.’
