City, one of Europes top teams, was looking to avenge its shock defeat to Wigan in last years final but slumped to a 2-1 loss at home, ending its hopes of a domestic treble just seven days after winning the League Cup final. "People kept saying we were lucky last year," Wigan captain Emmerson Boyce said, "but were going back to Wembley and were making history again." Wigan can seal a return to the final against all the odds by beating Arsenal, which is now overwhelming favourite for the competition. The other semifinal will be between Hull - which is into the last four for the first time since 1930, and Sheffield United - which became the first third-tier team to reach the semifinals since 2001. Hull defeated Sunderland 3-0 and United scored twice in two minutes to beat Charlton 2-0.

Arsenal, which advanced on Saturday with a 4-1 win over Everton, wont have a better opportunity to end its nine-year trophy drought. But the Gunners will underestimate Wigan at their peril.

"Its disappointing because we cannot be eliminated from the FA Cup at home by Wigan," City manager Manuel Pellegrini said.

City couldnt reproduce the comeback it delivered against Sunderland in last weekends League Cup, with Samir Nasris 68th-minute goal its only reply. "We pressed them high, got in their faces and they didnt like it," Perch said. Anything is possible now. Hopefully we can prove a few people wrong again in the semifinal against Arsenal." Sunderland also missed the chance for a quick return to Wembley as Hull scored three second-half goals after having a penalty saved before halftime. Hull captain Curtis Davies rose highest in the 68th to head in Tom Huddlestones free kick, before David Meyler supplied a cool finish four minutes later after chasing down a punt upfield. Lee Cattermole played a shocking back pass that left the lurking Matty Fryatt with the simplest of chances to score just minutes later. The semifinals will be played on April 12-13.
