City players were escorted off the field as emotional Wigan fans ran onto the pitch at full-time to celebrate the 1-0 win over the Premier League giants.

In the midst of the on-pitch chaos that ensued, television footage appeared to show Aguero pushing a supporter away after being approached on the pitch.

Fans at the DW Stadium were also seen ripping out advertising hoardings and throwing them towards police.

Wigan chairman David Sharpe told BBC Radio 5 live: “It is not nice to see. Football is emotional, it is what it does to fans. But I don’t like to see this at the end of the game.

“It is a massive result, but we have to stay classy in football. I don’t like what I am seeing here.”

Will Grigg’s 79th-minute goal secured the win for League One Wigan over the Premier League leaders, who had Fabian Delph sent off for a tackle on Max Power in the first half.
