Not culpable on the goals and made one great save on Fortune late.
Inexplicably let the ball run across the goalmouth for Wigan's second goal in a performance that will give City fans no fewer jitters ahead of Barcelona.
Too weak on the second goal as he was out-fought by Perch but did well to support the attack, putting in a great ball for Dzeko's header off the post.
Provided yet more ammunition to the critics who say he is an accident waiting to happen. Conceded a penalty clear as day and let McArthur by him for the second.
A much-improved display after halftime when he could have won a penalty. Knocked down the ball for Nasri's goal and curled one narrowly wide.
In the side to protect the ball and win it back, which he did for the most part, but was guilty of giving it away and making flat-footed fouls. Lucky his elbow on McManaman went relatively unnoticed.
City's most potent attacking threat in the first half due to his direct running but was sacrificed for Silva as City needed something special.
Perhaps his worst game in a City shirt. Body language was all wrong, booked for a petulant challenge and stormed down the tunnel when he was substituted after the second goal.
Dragged City back into contention with a leader's goal and was quite often their sole source of creativity through the midfield.
Pulled out of the firing line by virtue of an early substitution but contributed little or nothing to that point.
As usual, City's best attacker peppered Carson with shots but was let down by a lack of quality around him.
Kept Wigan ahead with some good late saves but would have expected to be an awful lot busier at the Etihad.
A few uncertain moments in possession in the first half were not enough to undo what was, ultimately, a disciplined, concentrated showing.
Supported the attack only when the situation necessitated and was rewarded for his diligence through the second Wigan goal.
Had a tough time keeping tabs on Navas, Richards and Milner but emerged unscathed.
Made one scarcely believable tackle on Dzeko late in front of the goal line that typified the dogged Wigan approach in the closing stages.
Put himself around the midfield with his pressing and needling tackles but was taken off as the inevitable onslaught deepened.
Expertly played an important tactical role amongst the defensive ranks, often being Wigan's spare man to launch attacks. Injured in a big clash with Ricards.
Made a terrific contribution for Wigan's second goal, jinking through the back line and cutting the ball back.
Took his penalty with consummate ease to put Wigan ahead and was its creative presence in the first half.
Played the role of lone striker to perfection in the first half and beat Demichelis to win the penalty. Could have put gloss on the victory late.
His direct running and inventiveness baited some of the City contingent into rash challenges. Set Wigan's stall out with a run at the heart of the defense straight from kickoff.
Ran the right flank with endeavor after his introduction and provided the discipline needed for Richards to bomb past him. Terrific delivery on a late Dzeko chance.
Pulled Wigan players out of position and probed in the final third to no avail.
Focal point of the attack as City went more direct and hit the base of the post with a header. Should have planted his later chance on target.
Came on for the injured McCann and was pressed deeper once City went two behind.
Brought on to stem the blue tide midway though the second half.
Brought on to relieve McManaman after a hard shift and tried to stretch City by remaining tight to the touchline.
