City are on high alert
London: Premier League champions Manchester City will be on full alert ahead of their trip to Wigan Athletic on Wednesday after manager Roberto Martinez said his side were beginning to start converting solid performances into points.
Catalan-born Jordi Gomez became only the second Spaniard to score a Premier League hat-trick when he produced a dazzling display to help Wigan beat Reading 3-2 at home at the weekend.
The victory came despite an injury crisis engulfing the DW Stadium and after a number of matches where 15th-placed Wigan played well but missed out.
“We couldn’t get the points that I feel their performances have deserved and that’s something we need to work on and we need to improve,” Martinez said on Monday.
