Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero could be in trouble after getting caught up in a scuffle with fans after his team’s shock FA Cup exit.

Wigan Athletic’s 1-0 victory against the Premier League leaders in the fifth round led to a pitch-invasion at the DW Stadium following the match.

The resulting scuffle was caught on TV cameras, with the Argentinian appearing to swing his arm at a Wigan fan before being pulled away by Wigan defender Cheyenne Dunkley.

Aguero then broke free and approached the fan again, before being pulled away by a teammate.

Some Man City fans also threw advertising hoardings and objects including plastic bottles in response to the Latics fans.

Angry scenes followed, with police and match stewards trying to regain control of the pitch.

Earlier ill-temper on the touchline at half-time between team managers Pep Guardiola and Paul Cook seemed to have set the tone for the match. The pair then continued their dispute in the tunnel.

Both clubs could be in trouble with the FA over the crowd disturbances, and investigations will take place into how the pitch invasion was allowed to take place.

Wigan Athletic will now go on to face Southampton in the quarter-finals next month.

It is the third time in six seasons that the League One team have made it to the last eight of the FA cup.
