No charges for Manchester City's Aguero

Sergio Aguero will not face any punishment from the Football Association following an altercation with a Wigan fan after the FA Cup defeat.

Aguero was involved in a physical exchange with a Wigan supporter as hundreds of ecstatic fans spilled onto the pitch following the League One side’s 1-0 victory in the fifth-round.

TV footage revealed that the fans initiated the fight, even spat at Aguero. The Argentine will face no disciplinary action from the FA following the incident, although City's all-time record goalscorer has been "reminded of his responsibilities".

However, the governing body confirmed it has charged both City and Wigan for failing to control their players after Fabian Delph was sent off in the first half.

"Both Wigan Athletic and Manchester City have been charged for failing to control their players in relation to the dismissal of Fabian Delph during last night's Emirates FA Cup fifth-round tie," an FA statement said.

"The clubs have until 6pm on Friday 23 February 2018 to respond.

"In addition, both clubs have been asked to provide their observations following the crowd trouble at the end of the game and have until Monday 26 February 2018 to respond."

The dismissal prompted a confrontation between City manager Pep Guardiola and his Wigan counterpart Paul Cook.
