Kompany tipping Man City v Wigan final to be a 'great game for the neutrals'

Vincent Kompany suggested there could be a few goals when Manchester City meets Wigan Athletic in the FA Cup final.

The Premier League title-holders take on the Latics at Wembley on May 11 and City skipper Kompany believes the game plan of both sides makes for a potentially open and free-flowing contest.

"I think this is a stadium, a pitch, that probably suits Wigan but it suits us as well," he said.

"I expect it to be a good game because they know how to play ball and we do.

"For the fans it is always a bit harder when it is open but I do feel it will be a great game for the neutrals again."

City are into the final after beating reigning cup winners Chelsea 2-1 thanks to goals from Samir Nasri and Sergio Aguero whilst Wigan beat Millwall 2-0 on Saturday courtesy of goals from Shaun Maloney and Callum McManaman.
